Mammoet purchases first Faymonille trailers
23 August 2023
Mammoet has purchased two new 9-axle HighwayMAX trailers for various heavy haul projects across North America.
HighwayMAX trailers permit a legal payload of more than 174,000 pounds at 20,000 pounds per axle and a technical payload of more than 249,000 pounds.
“The king-pin-steering with counter-steered axles enables the necessary maneuverability,” said Paul Hönen, sales manager, Faymonville. “The pendulum axles with 23 ⅝” hydraulic stroke and a steering angle up to 60° make the trailer ready even for difficult road conditions.”
The Faymonville trailers also cut down set up time prior to loading and to reduce empty weight to increase the payload, the company said. The “truck & trailer”-length also remains below 90 feet in order to travel without escort in most U.S. states.
“Our HighwayMAX vehicle is the reliable solution for the most different heavy haul jobs,” added Hönen. “Extremely high point loads of 44,000 pounds over the axle bearings and 88,000 pounds over the center spine ensure optimum robustness. The hydraulic axle compensation provides an increased side stability.”
