The Collett Team with a 6×4 DAF XF 510, a Faymonville Low Loader and a Transformer to Transport

Utilising their 6×4 DAF XF 510 and Faymonville low loader, the Collett Team transported the 5.3m (L) x 2.9m (W) x 4.4m (H) transformer from Leeds to Knowl Hill, Berkshire.

Once on site, the Team lowered the bed of the trailer to allow for the positioning of the four jacks. With these in place, they gradually raised the transformer in 25mm increments until at a height sufficient to allow the installation of the skidding track underneath.

By gradually lowering the jacks, the transformer was manoeuvred into position on the skid track.

Once settled, the Team extended and retracted the push/pull until between the track’s locking points gradually sliding the transformer towards it’s designated siting on the substation plinth. Once in position, the Team once again employed the jacks to raise the transformer, allowing for the removal of the track before final lowering into position.

Another transformer safely delivered!
