Faymonville TeleMAX and MegaMAX for Timmerhaus
Telescopic semi-trailers for a regular customer
Timmerhaus Spedition and Transporte GmbH from Oberhausen has been in family hands for generations. They have focused on heavy and special transports. The company’s tradition goes back to the 18th century. Formerly known as Timmerhues, the family worked in agriculture, in a time, when transporting goods from A to B was proceeded with far less horsepower. The premises in our neighboring town are just 20 minutes away from our location. This circumstance and the personal advice is very much appreciated by our long-term customer. We recently delivered the fourth telescopic platform trailer TeleMAX from FAYMONVILLE as well as another from a total of five MegaMAX low bed semi-trailers – also from the Belgian manufacturer.
TeleMAX telescopic up to almost 30 m
In the delivered configuration, the TeleMAX 3-axle semi-trailer is equipped with hydraulic forced steering and can be (double) telescoped up to a total length of approx. 29.8 m. The height of the semi-trailer platform is just 1,050 mm – resulting in a loading height of approx. 1.200 mm. It is suitable for a “lowliner” truck tractor unit. With a dead weight of approx. 11.9 to, the vehicle offers a payload of approximately 36.1 to.
Within the TeleMAX series, Faymonville combines two- to six-axle plateau semitrailers. They are available even as 4x-telescopic with an overall length of up to 65 meters. The vehicle type is configurable with hydraulic or pneumatic suspension. Faymonville offers rigid, self steering or hydraulically steered axles as well as swing axles for the platform trailer. There are hardly any limits to individualization. Typical applications are the transport of parts of wind turbines, such as tower segments, rotor blades or wings or construction and bridge elements.
MegaMAX with vessel bed
The lowbed consists of a total of three modules – gooseneck, vessel bed and the rear chassis. It is also equipped with an excavator trough, which is covered at the rear end with a plug-in plate. The vessel bed in the “super-low design” measures approx. 6,850 mm in length and can be technically extended by approx. 4,700 mm. In combination with the swingaxle system – developed by Faymonville with axles from SAF – and the 5th wheel load of 18 t, the semi-trailer delivers a total weight of 42 t.
Loading platform and extension beam
Loading platform and extension beams are connected with a mechanical bolt-tab coupling. The connection between the low bed and the chassis simplifies the installation of extension beams or the replacement of the loading platform. Screw-on container locks for 20 ‘and 40’ containers are part of the extensive equipment as well as stake pockets and numerous lashing options – inside and outside on the girders of the loading area. In total we delivered three pairs of extension beams – 2 x 2 m, 2 x 4 m and 2 x 6. m. The shortest beams can be used, for example, for the transport of 40 ‘containers. Without them, the low bed only offers space for a 20’ container.
