Barnhart and Goldhofer debut WesTrac system

March 5 - Barnhart Crane & Rigging has added WesTrac Transportation System to its equipment inventory. Barnhart's engineers designed WesTrac together with German company Goldhofer. The Wes Trac is a new class of dual-lane transporter with unique new featu

"Extremely heavy loads on public roads and across bridges pose challenges to meet Department of Transportation (DOT) requirements," said Jeff Latture, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Barnhart. "Traditionally, transportation systems relied on two-axle dollies. Those have allowed Barnhart to complete some of the heaviest long hauls in the U.S."

WesTrac incorporates the features of a modular platform trailer. However, the axle spacing and footprint are designed specifically to meet DOT requirements for roads and highways on the West Coast. The system is designed for efficient mobilisation, higher road speeds and variable widths to achieve dual-lane loading. In some configurations,WesTrac can handle payloads over 600,000 pounds.

"The addition of our Goldhofer WesTrac dual-lane transport system type THP/CA to Barnhart's cool tools inventory gives us the ability to transport over-dimensional and super heavy hauls," said Latture.

Barnhart says it also plans to introduce a new EasTrac System designed specifically to meet DOT requirements on the East Coast.
