Cometto (a division of the Faymonville Group), a specialist manufacturer of self-propelled, modular and special industrial vehicles has introduced its new MGSL modular axle lines for abnormal transport applications ranging from 50 tonnes to 5000 tonnes.
With this modular vehicle type, transport companies can achieve optimum flexibility for varied load and road types. The MGSL is designed for public roads, off-road transport as well as for on-site operations.
A strengthened loading area allows point loads up to 50 000 kg above the wheel arches and 80 000 kg above cross members for heavy and concentrated loads. Each axle line has a technical axle load at 0,5 km/h from 45 000 kg.
The user-friendly concept of the Cometto MGSL is a huge advantage for daily work. The axle compensation makes an ideal load distribution possible. Best maneuverability is guaranteed by pendulum axles with a stroke of 600 mm and a pivot-mounted bogie with a 60° steering angle.
Road inclinations (lengthwise and crosswise) can easily be compensated for via the enhanced stroke on the cylinders. Pendulum axles ensure optimum ground contact and equal tyre pressure under the most difficult circumstances while keeping the platform at a horizontal level.
Furthermore, the hydraulic forced-steering improves driving comfort. The steering is controlled either by a gooseneck or by a drawbar. The freely- accessible steering rods provide an easy and safe adaptation of steering angles.
The MGSL offers seamless interoperability with identical vehicles from several manufacturers. This variety of combination options as well as the user-friendly operating concept makes the MGSL a guarantor of flexibility and economy for the most complex heavy-duty transport jobs.
Thanks to a large package of options and accessories, the MGSL from Cometto can be quickly adapted to all specific transport requirements. Dropdecks are also available in various designs and payload classes. Perimeter deck, flatbed deck, excavator deck and a spacer add to the range, supported by the COSMO-software application, an open tool to survey axle loads and bending moments.
