Montejo moves with Goldhofer

Transportes Montejo has recently transported an 800-ton (727.7-tonne) PC 8000 hydraulic excavator using its Goldhofer PST/SL modular transporter.

The Colombian heavy transport provider loaded the excavator onto a double-width 16-axle self-propelled combination to transport the equipment across 25 km of difficult terrain on the site of the Drummond Mine in Colombia. 

Transportes Montejo also utilised its PST/SL modular transporters in combination with two power packs and three Kenworth tractors to transport a 1,200-ton (1,089-tonne) P&H 2800 XPC mining excavator.   

Fernando Montejo, ceo, and Carlos Eduardo Alfonso, operations manager of Transportes Montejo, explained that following five days of planning, the four-day operation required a triple axle combination, comprising 16 Goldhofer PST/SL-E and THP/SL axle lines.

The 32 km route included two mountains, each with up to 5 percent gradients. "With the help of the Goldhofer service team we were able to distribute the load of the 2800 XPC on the combination to complete the journey exactly according to plan," added Alfonso.

According to Goldhofer, the robust THP/SL modules, with their low deadweight and high bending moment, are ideal for handling heavy and concentrated loads.
