Bridging A Gap
25 March 2008
The new 9.8 foot (3 meter) wide SPMT 3000-SPIC from Scheuerle bridges the gap between the company's SPMT products and its proven InterCombi Series Steerable Platform Trailers.
While in the past Scheuerle has equipped its mechanically steered InterCombi trailers with hydrostatic drives, the SPMT 3000-SPIC now enhances the entire product line. The SPMT 3000-SPIC can be coupled with existing fleets of steerable platform trailers. The steering programs can be adapted to the steering range of the trailers to form large vehicle groups capable of heavy loads witt exceptional stability even in high load center conditions.
The drive unit or PPU is 9 feet 3 inches (2.85 meters) wide and has a diesel engine, hydraulic drives and a completely electronic system, including remote control.
The 3000-SPIC has a capacity of 44 tons (40 tonnes) per axle, a plus or minus 140° steering angle, an almost 6 foot (1.8 meter) wheel track, extraordinary stability for heavy loads with high load centers and coupling capabilities to existing fleets of steerable trailers.
