Easier transport of heavy machines and loads

Faymonville introduces its 6-axle MultiMAX PA-X low loader designed for the transport of heavy machines and loads. With an overall length of less than 20 m and a minimum loading height of 790 mm, this model has a 600 mm stroke and 60°steering angle. The gooseneck with a technical fifth wheel load of 30,000 kg is based on an outer beam construction which provides a maximum loading length. The open design between the outer beams allows to load as much as possible to the front. For example, vessels can extend into the outer beams. The hydraulic compensation of the neck enables lifting and lowering of the front area of the loading platform. This allows lowering of the last critical millimeters, especially for underpasses. Thanks to the different choices of turning radius, the customer can optimise the overall vehicle length of both tractor unit and stepframe trailer. 

The use of pendle-axles results in a higher and wider central beam. The PA-X loading platform is available in the widths of 2,850 mm and 3,000 mm and is supplied with an anti-slip coated surface. A lockable sliding bolster with chamfered corners ensures the best possible positioning of a wheel loader.

Faymonville said: “The 6-axle MultiMAX PA-X low loader has the strongest ramps on the market with an overall load of 80 tonnes and a wheel load of 20 tonnes! The ramp tip is opened by a separate cylinder. This ensures that the ramp is always fully open before it touches the ground. A convenient stepless side shift is achieved with one cylinder per ramp.”
