Faymonville Launch VarioMAX Plus with 105t payload
With the VarioMAX Plus, the trailer manufacturer Faymonville launches a new product range on the market for larger low bed combinations. The newly developed product for a payload of up to 105t at 12t axle load combines the advantages of the proven VarioMAX and CombiMAX systems.
The vehicle is designed to transport the heaviest construction machines, mobile crushing equipment and transformers. Rainer Noe, product manager at Faymonville, summarises its benefits: “The strengths of the VarioMAX Plus low bed semi-trailer lie in its ability to transport high payloads, its modular versatility and manoeuvrability”.
The concept is also designed with the future in mind. This is based on the proven “Joker axle” technology. “This allows for a 1-axle bogie to be integrated either behind the gooseneck or the low bed when a higher payload needs to be moved. In this respect, the user can choose between one or two intersections in his combination,” says Rainer Noe, explaining the technical aspect that gives the VarioMAX Plus unique flexibility. Combination conversions can be carried out quickly and easily.
The compact design makes the vehicle ideally manoeuvrable on tight construction sites and access roads. The modular principle is designed to be particularly user-friendly , meaning that the driver can operate all functions intuitively after only a short training period.
On the bogies in the VarioMAX Plus range, the customer can choose between robust 19.5“ or compact 17.5“ tyres. The proven pendle axle technology is employed across the board. “This type of axle is specially designed for use on difficult terrain. It enables a maximum total stroke of 600 mm as well as an extreme steering angle of up to 60°,” says Rainer Noe, pointing out some key features. The pendulum movements enable optimum axle compensation between the individual axles on uneven surfaces and differing ground clearances.
The front pendle axle bogies can be uncoupled from the gooseneck if required and can be transported on the low bed when unladen to comply with the legal framework on the road. The versatile low bed range of the VarioMAX Plus caters for countless applications as it includes excavator decks, outer beam decks in different heights and hydraulically widening vessel bridges.
Thanks to the use of high-tensile fine-grain steels, the VarioMAX Plus also withstands the harshest conditions.
Robust and proven trailer technology.
