Nooteboom Wins Trailer Medium Weight (3-5 axles) for Innovation
The Nooteboom team at the Heavies
Date 5 September 2018
In the category Trailer Medium Weight (3-5 axles) Nooteboom has been elected by the judging panel as the winner of the Innovation of the Year Award for the Manoovr semi-lowloader with excavator trough and 80 tonne heavy duty ramps.
Again, there was one stand-out entry in this category. It was developed in response to the need for a more efficient way to transport big construction machinery
In the words of one of the Judges: ‘The next stage in the Manoovr range. A super strong trailer that’s ideal for heavy plant.’It is the second time in three years that Nooteboom has been awarded The Heavies Innovation of the year award.
The trailer is based on an existing innovative semi low-loader but for really big construction equipment it had to be modified to overcome transport height and for safe quick loading.
When carrying excavators or demolition machines the boom can be placed in the trough so that the total height of the load is reduced considerably. And the special ‘heavy duty’ ramps each have a wheel load rating of 20 tonne.
