Faymonville PA-X in action at Rosec Transport

Following Faymonville’s resounding debut of the PA-X system at Hannover’s IAA Show earlier this year, the manufacturer are delighted to announce that the first vehicles utilising this technology are at work now – including French operator Rosec Transport.

The PA-X translates in to a ‘low pendle axle’ and includes several operational advantages: a loading height of 790mm with an unbeatable stroke of 600mm. Their motto speaks volumes: More than low!

The concept convinced Rosec Transport to invest in a 6-axle PA-X rear bogie, a detachable gooseneck and 1-axle and 2-axle CombiMAX bogie. This combination allows Rosec to configure its vehicle following the load to a 6-, 8- or 9-axle combination.

During its maiden move, Rosec Transport moved an 80t wind plant motor with a length of 13m using an 8-axle trailer configuration.

In the development of the PA-X, Faymonville attached importance to the practical benefits and advantages. With the CombiMAX variants (for instance) the pre-stressing can be adjusted by means of a bolt coupling. The steering geometry can also be precisely adjusted thanks to an innovative hydraulic system in the steering.

Low, unbeatable stroke and a real power pack. The rigid design also enables the transport of compact loads (e.g. transformers) without compromising on deflection – even in the extended state.

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?
