March 4 - Oldenburg, Germany headquartered Ulferts & Wittrock has added several six-axle Nooteboom extendible semi low-loaders to its fleet, including the latest generation Nooteboom eight-line MCO-PX semi low-loader with detachable Multidolly.
Ulferts & Wittrock opted for the MCO-PX with Multidolly due to its ease of operation, multi-functional uses, relatively low deadweight and lower running costs, said Nooteboom.
The MCO-PX with six axle lines and Multidolly with two axle lines was purchased mainly to be used in the transportation of the superstructure of Ulferts & Wittrock's Terex SL3800 and Demag CC2800 cranes.
The option to extend the load floor between the Multidolly and rear axle makes this combination suitable for most special transport operations, including the transport of ultra-long steel structures and concrete elements, claims Nooteboom.
For the transport of lighter loads the Multidolly can be detached due to its unique coupling system, which turns the vehicle into a six-axle extendible semi low-loader suitable for smaller transport jobs.
The MCO-PX with Multidolly has an axle of 12 tonnes per axle line at 80 km/h, and Ulferts & Wittrock chose a distance between the axle lines of 1,510 mm instead of 1,360 mm because it is easier to obtain an exemption from the German authorities for a 12-tonne axle load, explained Nooteboom.
