July 31 - Coffeyville, Kansas, USA headquartered Taylor Crane & Rigging (TCR), an industrial mover and crane services company, has acquired 32-axle lines of Scheuerle/Kamag K-25s.
The K-25 - developed by Germany headquartered heavy-duty transport equipment manufacturers Scheuerle and Kamag - is an autonomous platform trailer capable of handling heavy cargoes. The K-25 range is comprised of the K25 SP (self propelled), SPE (self propelled electronically steered), PB (power booster), SL (split type), ES (extra strong) and UL (ultra light).
TCR, which specialises in plant relocations and machine installations across the USA, has acquired 22 axle lines of regular pulled trailers. Additionally, especially for transports on industrial sites, TCR purchased four PB axle lines and six SP axle lines.
Specification of the K-25 include: one of the highest bending moment on the market; a steering angle of +/- 60 degrees (+/- 140 degrees on the K-25 SPE variant); the largest oil volume in class; freely accessible steering rods; special lashing eyes; wear-resistant design; and end-to-end and side-to side coupling.
"These vehicles will expand our ability to perform heavy hauls services throughout the United States," said Jim C Taylor Jr, president at TCR.
"It gives us versatility in configurations and allows us to move the trailer into sections in order to utilise it on more than one job at a time," Taylor Jr added.
