Narrow, narrower, construction site.
In the meantime, more small transporters have squeezed their way through the entrance. One is parked right at the exit in a curve. “I am so grateful for the two steered rear axles,” says Andi, who manages to get out just with one reverse move. In addition to the steered leading and trailing axle, the Actros has full-air suspension. “This means I can lift the truck if I am likely to touch the ground somewhere and lower it if I have to get through low entrances.”
Andi’s Actros was manufactured as a three-axle vehicle and was then equipped with the fourth axle by Custom Tailored Trucks in Molsheim, thanks to which more than 12 tonnes of payload is available. The structure comes from the company Kotschenreuther Jahnsdorf and the crane is a Palfinger 34002 SH. Back at location, the next delivery is being loaded: U‑profiles and plasterboards for the next construction site. In contrast to unloading with the crane, in this case a forklift is used on-site to load the material from the side.
