The family-managed manufacturer of special vehicles for heavy-duty and special transport, the Faymonville Group, is showcasing its expertise in Munich with fifteen exhibits awaiting the international audience. On an outdoor area of 1,450 square meters, the pioneer in transport solutions, will put on display three product brands MAX Trailer, Faymonville and Cometto.

Celebrating its premiere in Munich, the new BladeMAX1000 from Cometto with a load capacity of 1000 mT is designed to safely transport the latest mega wind turbine blades over the last section of the route to the installation site. It takes its place in the BladeMAX series from Cometto, which now features three variants: BladeMAX650, BladeMAX800 and BladeMAX1000.

The ModulMAX AP-M designates a heavy duty platform trailer that combines the supporting assist mode with the independent self-propelled mode. The driven axles can be switched on and off at any speed with a maximum of 40km/h. This is a big advantage, because the operator does not have to stop the convoy for this manoeuvre.

Construction with all-rounders

The Faymonville Group knows very well that there is barely any other area with as many tasks as in the construction sector therefore all-rounders giving a perfect solution will be shown. The MAX Trailer brand, celebrating 10 years of existence, has revolutionised the market with its modular construction. In Munich, four exhibits will underline the product variety that is on offer.
