Three companies, one MegaMAX solution!

US companies Dagen Trucking Company, Stephen Izzi Trucking & Rigging Inc. and DeMase Trucking & Rigging handled a common project, recently moving the first railcars for Boston’s new Orange Line from the port of New York City to Massachusetts.

Arriving from China, they were the first of many, which will partly be produced in Springfield, MA. With an overall cargo length over 66’, a payload of 80,000lbs and the usual height restrictions in the North East, the job was particularly challenging. However, the three transporters found the perfect transport solution at Faymonville and Hale Heavy Haul, official Faymonville dealer on the US East Coast. “The steerable option is a must for long loads. It gets around tight corners like a regular length trailer and can manoeuvre in confined spaces on job sites with ease. The MegaMAX has been a great addition to our fleet”, concludes Jim Moeschen from De Mase Trucking Co., Inc., happy to have this flexible vehicle in his fleet now.

The steerable MegaMAX stretch double drop with a drive height of only 13.8” is the lowest stretch in the market and helped to clear even the lowest bridges. The unique kingpin steering on these trailers offers unmatched manoeuvrability and allowed to access extremely tight areas, which is always a challenge with such long cargo.

With a compressed length of 53’ total and a width of 100” without outriggers, the 3-axle trailers on air suspension can be run empty without any escorts or permits. The deck stretches from 25’ up to 42’, and can be extended even further using additional deck inserts (79”-118”-158”) that can be added thanks to the detachable rear bogie. The hydraulic detachable gooseneck allows continuous height adjustment for maximum flexibility. “This fact allowed us to deliver to our customer with much ease. In the past, conflicting terrains would cause much delay for riggers, manpower, end user, and our valued customer”, says David Izzi from Izzi Trucking & Rigging, Inc.

Finally, Faymonville is the only European manufacturer in the North American market that uses electric and pneumatic components that are completely DOT approved. For an extra-long life cycle, the MegaMAX chassis is fully metalised (zinc-plated), which ensures the best corrosion protection available in the market! Jeff Dagen, Dagen Trucking Company praises the finishing of the new vehicle from Faymonville. “The engineering and workmanship is remarkable, welds look great. I’m excited to keep moving forward with this venture”.

The latest option for the MegaMAX is a fourth pin-on flip axle to increase the legal payload and ensure even more versatility going from state to state. This axle is steerable as well and easy to detach or flip for empty transport, no shimming is required. The load transfer is done via air ride system and the robust mechanical connection of the steering is simple to use.

Hale Heavy Haul carries these and many more Faymonville products on stock and offers efficient customer service, after sales support and spare parts.

HeavyTorque is an essential read magazine for decision makers within the heavy haulage and specialist transport industry and provides a great opportunity for manufacturers to make their mark. The adverts are well produced, editorials exceptionally informative and the staff’s support has always been excellent. Promoting our products in HeavyTorque magazine is one of the best marketing decisions we have made.

Kelsa choose to advertise in HeavyTorque because its content is clearly for serious players in the haulage industry, with a wide range of informative articles. We know that it reaches the right people and covers aspects of trucking most others do not, offering information on changes within the industry as well as new products and services. As a designer I’m also aware of the extremely high quality of the photographic content and print. We are really happy with the service we receive and have no hesitate in recommending HeavyTorque to truckers everywhere.

I certainly enjoy reading HeavyTorque - and whilst we do not operate any heavy haulage ourselves - we do so on a sub-contract basis. Therefore, it’s good to see what equipment is being used by both suppliers, and the industry operators alike. The content and photographic quality is always first rate. Keep up the great work!

HeavyTorque magazine is a class apart. Its orientation illustrates our sector on a different level. The general look is really unique and we value the highly informative content. The magazine is an ideal communication platform and partner for the Faymonville Group – who offer the complete transport solution for payloads from 15t to 15,000t… and beyond.

HeavyTorque has set a new standard in specialist print and on-line journalism. Not only is it attractive and appealing with great photography and layout, but the features provide in depth and incisive insight into this highly specialised sector of the road transport industry.

From the drivers’ viewpoint, HeavyTorque is a must-read for those interested or associated with the heavy haulage industry. The title is very informative on a wide range of projects - not only in the UK - but worldwide. On another note, it was a personal privilege (as a driver) to be invited to the industry awards evening, The Heavies… but to then be awarded 'The Heavies Hero' in 2017 was an amazing achievement. May I say a massive thank you to my fellow peers for their continued support and nominations!
