Sterett Crane & Rigging has reinforced its machine fleet with six self-propelled vehicles from Faymonville.
The Belgian manufacturer Faymonville offers SPMC self-propelled “PowerMAX” vehicles for the heavy and special transport sector. These vehicles are used when conventional heavy load tractor units no longer have the pulling force for heavy loads, or when sufficient space is not available. Powered by a 240kW diesel engine, the SPMC provides endless power with its 170kN force per axle line.
"With these power packs, more modules with driven axles can be supplied," said Paul Hönen, North American sales representative for Faymonville. "Thus loads of several thousand tons at optimum distribution can be moved safely and easily.”
Sterett Crane & Rigging has six locations in a radius of about 1,000 miles. The crane and transport provider can now greatly expand its range. Paul Hönen notes that the easy handling of these high-tech products is what convinced Sterett to purchase.
“The operator guidance of the SPMC system is absolutely user-friendly," he said. "The clear touchscreen display indicates all relevant process and transport data quickly and clearly. The driver immediately gets an overview of the selected settings.”
