Cometto launch the new MGSL modular series

After the takeover by the Faymonville Group, Cometto – the specialist for self-propelled, modular and special industrial vehicles – adds a new product to the range: the MGSL modular axle lines.

Heaviest loads on modular axle lines – this is the leitmotif when heavyweight goods need to be moved. For these kinds of transport jobs with highest payloads from 50t up to 5,000t, Cometto launched now a new product range: the MGSL! It makes the most challenging transport possible!

The highest bending moment on the market
With this modular vehicle type, transport companies can reach the highest flexibility in use for the most different and difficult fields of activity! The MGSL is designed for public roads, off-road transport as well as for inside plant operations.

Thanks to a strengthened loading area, it reaches point loads up to 50,000kg above the wheel arches and 80,000kg above cross members for heavy and concentrated loads. Another impressive fact: the MGSL has the highest bending moment on the market! Each axle line has a technical axle load at 0.5km/h from 45,000kg.

Easy handling thanks to the best technology
The user-friendly concept of the Cometto MGSL is a huge advantage for the daily work. The axle compensation makes an ideal load distribution possible. Best manoeuvrability is guaranteed by pendulum axles with a stroke of 600mm and the pivot-mounted bogie with a 60° steering angle. Road inclinations (lengthwise and crosswise) can easily be compensated with the important stroke on the cylinders. Pendulum axles ensure optimum ground contact and equal tire pressure under the most difficult circumstances and keep the platform almost in a horizontal level.

Furthermore, the hydraulic forced-steering permits a maximum driving comfort. The steering is controlled either by a gooseneck or by a drawbar. The freely accessible steering rods give an easy and safe adaptation of steering angles.

100% interoperability
The MGSL offers seamless interoperability with identical vehicles from several other manufacturers. This variety of combination options as well as the user-friendly operating concept makes the MGSL a guarantor of flexibility and economy for the most complex heavy-duty transport jobs.

Thanks to a large package of options and accessories, the MGSL from Cometto can be quickly adapted to all specific transport requirements. Dropdecks are also available are available in various designs and payload classes. Perimeter deck, flatbed deck, excavator deck or a spacer: the customer can choose within a large range of versatile and standardised dropdecks or even go for a tailor-made solution that meets exactly his needs.

Another helpful tool to optimise the use of these MGSL axle lines is the COSMO-software, an open tool to survey axle loads and bending moments.

True to the new Cometto motto: Propelled to the MAX!
