With a minimum height of just 30 3/8 inches and a width of 7 feet 6 inches, the SPMT 600 heavy lift trailer, from PSC, can fit into tight spaces. Despite its compact size, the heavy lift trailer is powerful: It can transport up to 67.5 tons per unit (22.5 tons per axle line). It’s also a flexible solution that can be configured to meet the specific load requirements of a project and space constraints of the plant by coupling up to four trailers end-to-end or side-by-side.
The SPMT heavy lift trailer was engineered to provide high maneuverability in the heavy transport market. First, each self-leveling wheel unit has a steering and lifting cylinder that optimizes control and traction. The pivoting wheel assemblies allow the trailer to move forward and backward, as well as sideways. Furthermore, the trailer features a self-sufficient power source. Without the hindrance of power cords, the unit can rotate 360 degrees without changing its mid-point. Its intelligent design and innovative functionality allow the SPMT to fit through a narrow entry, proficiently maneuver into position, and rise from 30 3/8 inches to 44 ¾ inches to precisely load a component onto a station. Once the component is in place, the SPMT simply drives out from under the load and exits the project area.
Another feature is the sophisticated wireless control system, Intellidrive, which allows a PSC certified operator to maneuver the trailer using a hand-held control unit. This remote control functionality significantly enhances safety as the operator does not need to physically be on or in the transport device and he can move to the best vantage point unobstructed.
