Modular Trailer-System for Europatrans

Faymonville CombiMAX

The company EUROPATRANS Speditions GmbH has been one of our customers for over 20 years. Some of our vehicles have been in the inventory of the company based in Lübeck for many years and continue to perform reliably on the roads of Europe. Last week we assembled some CombiMAX modules from our stock and made them ready for operation. We prepared a combination of a total of 9 axle lines from the modular system CombiMAX from Faymonville and handed over the complete train, consisting oft he semitrailer and a truck tractor, to Europatrans. The semi-trailer is composed of the universal gooseneck, a 2-axle and 3-axle centre-chassis and a 4-axle rear-chassis. Front- and and centre-chassis are additionally connected by an extension beam.

The 9 axle lines are pulled by a 4-axle truck-tractor by Mercedes-Benz. The engine drives two axles and generates a total of 460 kW and 3,000 Nm from a displacement of 15.6 l. It is thus well prepared for the registered gross train weight of up to 250,000 kg (trailer load 215,000 kg) and motorized more than sufficient for the 143,000 kg total weight of the combination used.
