Kurze Group Values Faymonville Relationship
The German Kurz Group from Friolzheim has consistently expanded its services in heavy duty transport since the company was established in 1962.
With this development the variety of semi-trailers also grew, for which the company relies on only one supplier: Faymonville.
The family council is quite clear in its view of the vehicle manufacturer: “Durable, reliable, extremely well made and non-depreciating. For us as Kurz there is currently no alternative in the heavy transport sector!” The company brochure additionally refers to the successful cooperation with Faymonville: “We can rely 100% on these products.”
Praise that is based on positive experiences in day-to-day work, because the Kurz Group has the right equipment for the transport of crushing and screening equipment as well as diverse construction machines.
The company has two friction-steered 1+2-axle semi low loaders from the MultiMAX Plus product series with wheel recesses and excavator trough. “With a tare weight of just 9,900 kg the vehicle is very light and yet extremely stable. With this vehicle we can move large asphalt rollers with spreader, feeders or large chain excavators”, says Michel Kurz, who also says that the 9,400 mm-long loading platform is a further advantage, as it can be extended by a further 2,400 mm.
He describes the fleet of three 1+3-axle MultiMAX low loaders as genuine “all-rounders”, with which the Kurz employees transport different excavators and pavers up to a payload of 43.5 t. At the end of last year a new 3+5 VarioMAX low bed was added. The decision was an easy one to take for Michel Kurz. “The two predecessor models had already proven themselves through their long service life. Now we needed a rear telescopically extending low bed for large crushing equipment and wheel loaders. With our 5-axle tractor unit we can get even more payload with the new gooseneck.”
At the beginning of the year new low loader technology was added in the shape of a 5-axle MultiMAX. The vehicle is equipped with the low PA-X pendle axle. This opens up new possibilities for managing director Michel Kurz. “With the steering angle of up to 60° we are much more manoeuvrable in cities than with classic low beds. And if the transport height of the machine fits, we can even load large excavators and drilling machines up to 62 t.”
Michel Kurz feels well taken care of with Faymonville. “I value the professional advice and speed of reaction from the conversation to the supply of spare parts.”
