Heavydrive boosts its horsepower
The company based in Donauwoerth is extending its truck fleet.
More strength, more flexibility, more speed: A new 26-tonne 3-axle truck has been added to the Heavydrive fleet and will be used for extremely heavy transports of up to 14.5-tonne cargo load and 16-tonne towing load. With modern trucks, Heavydrive's facilities and equipment arrive safely at their destination in Germany and beyond – even over long distances.
May 22 is the day. Managing director Guenter Uebelacker and his Heavydrive team will receive the "newbie" at the MAN Center in Munich. ”We are happy that we can offer our customers even more services with this modern truck," underlines Guenter Uebelacker.
The high-class truck has a total weight of 26 tonnes. With 480 horsepower, a powerful turbo compressor, automatic transmission, and premium fittings, the 3-axle truck guarantees a first-class performance in keeping with the usual Heavydrive standards. And this truck is also an ecological pioneer: It has extremely low fuel consumption and complies with the new Euro 6 emission standard. "Environmental protection and sustainability play a very important role for us. We can only achieve change if everyone does their bit" says Guenter Uebelacker.
Currently, a car manufacturer from the Stuttgart region equips the truck with a highly flexible construction machinery vehicle body. This way, construction machinery can be loaded from four different sides. A hydraulic access ramp ensures quick loading of the truck. In future, this will make it possible to load and deliver forklift trucks with low ground clearance such as those from the MLK Pick & Carry Crane series without any problems. Other heavy equipment from the Heavydrive GmbH such as mini cranes by Maeda and Unic with a dead weight of three to 14 tonnes, the brand new vacuum suction system VSG2500 K, VSG3500 K and VSG5000 K with a counterweight of 5000 kilos load, and the number of smaller lifting equipment such as ML 51,GMG 350, HDL 600, HSS 600 etc. can also be delivered reliably with the new truck.
Next year, Heaydrive plans to buy two more trucks of this kind. With constantly increasing demand and a successful turnover, managing director Guenter Uebelacker took the decision to invest in his fleet back in 2013. In 2013, a new fleet of Iveco Daily vans that come with 3.5 tonne trailers to transport loads in the 2.5 tonne segment joined the existing transporters and twelve-tonne trucks. This allows Heavydrive to offer a very broad range of transporters and guarantees reliable and quick delivery of lifting and assembly equipment.
