New from Scheuerle, part of the TII Group, is an extendable trailer designed for the transport of large excavators.
The lowloader trailer with an excavator deck and low radius tyres is an adaptation of the existing Superflex product with moveable wheel bogies, for loads with uneven weights and varying centres of gravities.
The 245-70R17.5 tyres allow for loadings that previously larger tyres were only capable of carrying. This has allowed Scheuerle to develop Superflex around the new tyres which can carry 12 tonnes per axle line at 80 km/h and 14 tonnes at 10 km/h.
The system allows large machinery to be driven under bridges and other obstacles thanks to turnable plates on the excavator deck that adjust the height of the trailer bed.
