Manoovr gives off-highway industry a lift


Heavy-duty industrial vehicles are being given a helping hand from Manoovr with its latest ramp. The 80-metric ton Noteboom comes with an excavator trough and has been designed to support the transport of large earthmoving and construction vehicles.

Available in 4-axle, 5-axle and 6-axle versions, each of the ramps of the semi low-loaders can take a wheel load of 20 metric tons and the technical axle load of the 6-axle is 75 metric tons.

The maximum permissible weight of the 6-axle extendible Manoovr semi low-loader with excavator trough differs per country. Due to weight restrictions of 35 tonnes for a 4-axle tractor in Germany, the result is a fifth wheel load of only 23 tonnes instead of 25 tonnes.

A Manoovr spokesperson said, “Innovation is often found in small changes. The new ramps, the extra-strong rear of the load floor and the hydraulic heavy-duty landing legs: they make the Manoovr with excavator trough the new benchmark in this category.”

“The load floor of the Manoovr is stronger than the floor of any other semi low. The extendible main beam is calculated per vehicle for the maximum load capacity, while the platform can take extremely heavy loads and the rear of the trailer can on each side be driven over or loaded with a load of up to 30 metric tons.”
