A new product puts the ‘cat among the pigeons’ – the HighwayMAX from Belgian trailer manufacturer Faymonville is an extendable on-road heavy haul trailer with nine hydraulically steered pendular axles and a technical payload of 260,000 lbs. It is compatible with the regulations in the USA and Canada, allowing a maximum payload due to its adapted dimensions.
More and more customers in the States are convinced by this new trailer type. “The HighwayMAX trailer is advantageous in routine projects due to its superior spine strength as well as overall capacity. We are capable of transporting concentrated loads that would typically be moved on conventional platform trailers with a much simpler arrangement” declares Brett Berard, vice-president of operations from Berard Transportation.
“With its pendular axles and torsion stiff frame, the HighwayMAX is unique in North America” says Paul Hönen, area sales manager, while emphasising the pioneering role of Faymonville with this trailer. The extremely high demand for this new commodity in the USA and Canada highlights its innovative character.
Faymonville succeeded in shaking up the transport sector in North America. This is due to the sophisticated technology and practical user-oriented developments, which is the manufacturer’s trademark. “The operation of HighwayMAX is very driver friendly. The tare weight is good so that we can get an excellent payload. The maneuverability of the trailer is just unbelievable, how it follows the truck around a corner. We want to add more Faymonville trailers to our fleet”, confirms Steve Sharp his satisfaction with this vehicles that will lead him to intensify the cooperation with the Belgian trailer manufacturer.
This multi-axle trailer can be viewed and tested at the official US representative and sales agent for Faymonville, Hale Heavy Haul Inc., located in Voorhees, New Jersey.
