Embarking from the Veghel industrial area in the Netherlands, the 4+6 lowbed combination, spanning 33.5 meters in length and weighing 155 tonnes, navigated a 850-kilometer route, traversing Germany en route to the north-east of the Dutch province of Noord-Brabant.

Guiding this feat was Gerwin “Kubus” Boemaars, project manager at M.J. van Riel, whose thirty years of experience ensured seamless coordination. Maneuvering through local roads, including negotiating a challenging underpass, showcased the low loader’s agility and the advantage of its low loading height.

The journey culminated in the unloading area, where M.J. van Riel’s mobile crane awaited. Driver Ed, at the helm of a Mercedes Arocs 8×4 tractor unit, effortlessly navigated thanks to the CombiMAX’s power steering system. With precision, the transformer was offloaded, highlighting the robustness and efficiency of the transport combination.
