Cometto, the specialist for self-propelled trailers, launches the Eco1000, a new product range with integrated Power Pack Unit for in-plant transport jobs up to a payload of 1000t. The whole concept builds on a future-oriented modular principle.
“With the Eco1000, Cometto provides the widest range in this specific market”, states Alessandro Giordano, Product Manager at Cometto. Only one of many points that makes the product unique. “Additionally, the connect&drive principle allows quick and easy connections of several vehicles up to a payload capacity of 1,000t.” Green aspects have an influence too: “Our hybrid solution is the first technology to be implemented in this specific transport sector.” And the new developments went into details “The control device is really smart and efficient and the number of accessories unreached. The 4.3” display of the newly designed remote control shows all trailer and transport information. And the 12.1“ colour touch-screen display within the Power Pack Unit provides information about lifting, steering and driving modes to the operator.“
The compact vehicle Eco1000 is available as a 2-axles type with 2 driven suspensions, as a 4-axles type with 2 or 4 driven suspensions, as a 4-axles type with 2 or 4 driven suspensions and a long frame and as a 6-axles type with 4 driven suspensions! “Up to four units can be combined together with interchangeable components, different Power Pack technologies and a wide selection of accessories”, explains Alessandro Giordano.
Connect & drive
The Cometto Eco1000 series offers all necessary vehicle combinations and interoperability with existing products from the Eco1000 family. In side by side mode it is possible to combine two vehicles with same length and engine. End-to-end combinations allow to connect vehicles of different lengths. Each vehicle is equipped with quick coupling connections to link two vehicles together with electrical cables (optional accessory).
Freedom of choice with three different Power Pack technologies
The widest range of Power Pack Units assures maximum flexibility. “All Power Pack Units have been designed and tested under the hardest conditions to meet the most advanced emission standard requirements of the market. Whether it may be a traditional propulsion for continuous performance, hybrid or electric technology”, declares the Product Manager. They represent the cutting edge of technology and offer the highest performance and efficiency either in cold arctic conditions or in the dry desert heat.
