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.
