Heavy duty transporter – Capacity 130 ton
Posted on November 27, 2017
Morello designed and manufactured an heavy duty transporter to move steel material around a still mill yard.
It can transports up to 130 tons of load thanks to its 16 superelastic wheels and its high installed power.
This diesel powered self-propelled trailer is equipped with a 150 kW diesel generating set.
Due to diesel generator the heavy duty transporter can be driven by electric motors instead of hydraulic ones. Avoiding a complex hydraulic system for driving it means a very low maintenance (an hydraulic machine always need a lot of maintenance) and a better control of traction and steering!
A better control of motors also means a lower fuel consumption and a lower ecological impact.
This heavy duty transporter has n°8 wheel steering but, in order to reduce turning radius, it is also possible to supply it with all n° 16 wheels steering.
Every couple of wheels is mounted on an oscillating axle and each axle is mounted on a rocker arm; this mechanical configuration allow the diesel powered mover to travel even on uneven floors without overloading a wheel or an axle.
The heavy duty transporter can be controlled by a pendant panel or by a radio remote controller. Both of them allow a potentiometric control of the acceleration that means an acceleration/deceleration ramp extremely gradual, millimetric movements and smoothly speed changes.
Morello Company produces these diesel heavy duty transporter for USA, Europe, South and Central America, Asia and Australia.
Every diesel cart can be customized on customer request in every detail. Here you can find some examples: Diesel powered self-propelled trailer
