40t tree heads up to new destination

Rate this post

A 70 years old chestnut tree at Alphen can den Rijn in the Netherlands had to be moved to make room for 60 new residential units. Kraanbedrijf Nederhoff b.v. Sjoerd Nederhoff has used the Faymonville ModulMAX to be able to transport this 40t tree. Considerable finesse was required from the crane driver when lifting it out with roots wrapped in a linen bag, and lowering onto the waiting modular vehicle.

 “Crossing curbs, dodging street lights and maintaining balance at the same time requires a stable and compact transportation solution that is intuitive to use. The 6-axle module from Faymonville is ideal for a task like this.” 

After about an hour and a half, the chestnut arrived 115 metres farther away at its new location in Anna van Burenlaan. The Nederhoff crew safely manoeuvred the Faymonville ModulMAX modular vehicle to the designated location. Thanks to the pendle-axles, the combination remained safe to drive. At the arrival a crane was already there for unloading the tree.
