The BigMove heavy-duty logistics network relies on the EuroCompact from SCHEUERLE for the transport of heavy construction machinery weighing up to 90 tonnes. Recently 19 of these trailers were purchased.
For payloads of around 90 tonnes (at 80 km/h, using a three-axle tractor and 12 t axle load), BigMove relies on the EuroCompact low-bed semi-trailer from SCHEUERLE, a subsidiary of the Transporter Industry International Group (TII Group) owned by the Otto Rettenmaier entrepreneurial family. A total of 19 new EuroCompact generation vehicles have been procured from SCHEUERLE by the heavy-load specialist network. Under the identifier, Chamäleon II, BigMove offers the fleet of vehicles to its customers. Procurement was preceded by intensive collaboration between the manufacturer and customer in order to meet the demanding requirements of BigMove.
The dead weight of the trailers is 30 tonnes and that decreases axle loads. As a result, the new EuroCompact generation is extremely road-friendly. In addition, the weight of the respective transported goods can be optimally distributed on the flat bed decks while the fifth wheel load can be continuously adjusted. Another outstanding strength of the EuroCompact series: the individual vehicle modules regarding the front and rear bogie units as well as the excavator deck result in a 3+5 combination in the basic version, i.e. with three axle lines on the gooseneck along with five axles on the rear module. With the help of the single-axle SmartAxle Dolly, the combination on the front and rear bogies can be extended by one axle line. Thus, for example, the axle loads are reduced from twelve to ten tonnes with the same payload in order to meet the requirements for certain route corridors. On the other hand, the payload of the combination correspondingly increases.
The EuroCompact is available in a wide range of designs, from the combinations 1+3 axle, 2+4 axle and 3+5 axle combinations through to 4+6 axles. The additional SmartAxle dolly facilitates precise utilisation corresponding to the load and selected route.
