November 18 - The BigMove network, which comprises 13 companies in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria and Poland, has ordered a total of 12 EuroAxle vehicles from trailer manufacturer Scheuerle.
"Through the use of structurally identical Scheuerle EuroAxle vehicles, we are able to distribute transport assignments among the member companies in the event of any bottlenecks. Approval processes are also simplified," explained Horst Wallek, managing director of Wallek Spezialtransporte, a member of the BigMove group.
According to Scheuerle, the new vehicles will be used for specialised transport projects across Europe in either five-axle or seven-axle configurations, depending on whether or not a two-axle bogie unit is suspended on the telescopic beam
Commenting on the manufacturer's new EuroAxle technology, Joachim Kolb, manager of market research and development at TII Sales, said: "Thanks to the linear stroke, there is no faulty camber and no track offset; in the construction, we dispensed with the need for lubrication points throughout - this results in an unrivalled extremely low tyre wear and makes the system virtually maintenance-free."
