Deep South Crane & Rigging Add Goldhofer Trailers

Heavy lift and transport company Deep South Crane & Rigging has added Goldhofer dual-lane axle lines and self propelled heavy duty modular transporters to its fleet in the USA.

Included in the order were PST/SL-E self propelled transporter with hydrostatic drive. There were 52 axle lines and four power packs. Its electronic multi-way steering offers an angle up to 135 degrees and capacity is up to 2,100 tonnes combining all 52 lines.

Mitch Landry, Deep South president, said, “With the new Goldhofer axle lines, we can handle our transport assignments with more flexibility than ever. Compared with the heavy-duty module system we have been using to date, the powered PST/SL-E axles with a basic width of 3,000 mm offer significantly improved lateral stability, and we also benefit from the lower loading height in comparison with conventional SPMT [self propelled modular transporter].”

Deep South now has twenty dual-lane axle lines from Goldhofer, including the THP/DL modules. Horst Häfele, Goldhofer sales director, heavy duty modules, said, “With the dual-lane system, Deep South can vary vehicle width to comply with the different transport regulations in place in the various federal states. That makes this module system extremely flexible, all the more so as the low deadweight and wide range of accessories such as gooseneck, drop decks and turntable make it possible to find the perfect solution for every load on an individual basis.”
