Some good looking photos there Patrick , whats the go with axle in the middle of the trailer ???? must get a fair bit of tyre scrub there or does it steer ???
or perhaps lift ?? also looks like the trailer extends as well sure is a Swiss army knife of floats (trailers) you are using

Nowt wrong with your eyes mate :lol: it does indeed extend, not all that long, 3m is max.
And that first axle, well sometimes it comes in handy, most of the times though it's not all that convenient... it does steer (to a certain amount of degrees) and it does lift, but ground clearance isn't that great, so I actually have to lift the suspension of the tractor as well to avoid "rubber scraping"...
These trailers were a bit French designed like, because of that first axle you can take on (legally) 45t loads, otherwise it would have been just 40t...
Empty weight isn't that brilliant though (26t), it's about the same as the old DAF with the 5 axled semi (28t), rumor has it that these trailers are going to be replaced by the new Nooteboom Manoovr (odd spelling isn't it...).

Cheers, Patrick

Have been going back and forth for the past two weeks from Tournai (Belgium) to Liancourt ( northern France) with windmill sections.

Cheers, Patrick

Following pic's are from a job at Liverpool docks, one of the scrapyard cranes was being disassembled for transport to Holland, things didn't go that easy though, took the crew a bit longer then suspected...

Aye, they were on tracks Paul, nowt wrong with your eyes mate! Some smaller parts along with the tracks were loaded upon normal flatbeds.
Can't remember what make the crane was, probably Sennebogen...

Wouldn't go near that "beach" though if you would see another day... :D
