Dortmund-based heavy transport provider August Alborn has purchased two EuroCompact lowbed semi-trailers from TII Scheuerle.

The two and three-axle vehicles from the EuroCompact series have payloads of up to 36 and 48 tonnes, respectively. They feature have a telescopic slab deck that allows for a loading length of up to 12.27 m or 12.61 m. 

The vehicles also benefit from a low loading height in the low deck itself of 300 mm when in the driving position. 

In combination with a large steering angle, the tractor-trailer combination can also negotiate narrow and tight spaces. Both versions thus offer an optimal combination length to loading length ratio and, due to their compact dimensions, fall under the single-driver regulation even when the telescopic deck is extended. This simplifies the approval procedure and accelerates work processes during use, TII Scheuerle explained. 

“As a heavy load logistics provider, we have to constantly reinvent ourselves and overcome additional challenges in order to become successful in the market over the long term,” added Helmut Alborn, managing director of August Alborn

Along with its fleet of truck-mounted cranes and heavy-duty vehicles, Alborn also provides lifting frames with load capacities of up to 1,440 tonnes each. In addition to the lowbed semi-trailers, Alborn will also add numerous Scheuerle K25 axle lines to strengthen its fleet later this year.
