TRANSPORT OF AGRICULTURAL MACHINES
Transporting agricultural machinery is a specialist task. Machines vary greatly in terms of their dimensions and must be safely loaded/unloaded at agricultural locations which may not be easily accessible.
Most agricultural machines are designed to perform their work in an effective manner, but the transportation of this equipment may not receive the same amount of importance. As a consequence, we see this as a challenge to develop appropriate transport solutions that are multifunctional to take into account the wide variety of equipment that the trailer may be required to carry.

What are you transporting?
The biggest hurdle with agricultural vehicles is often not the weight, but the shape. The width and height, often including unusual appendages causes issues. This also presents challenges when securing the cargo.
Agricultural vehicle transport can be classified under four groups:
Tractors, trailers (tippe, pick-up wagons etc.), field vehicles (sprayers, manure injector, etc.), self-propelled vehicles (harvesters, combines, etc.). Smaller agricultural vehicles can easily be transported on a semi-low loader. With a semi-low loader, the transport height can be reduced by wheel wells. To ride on and off the trailer quickly and easily, you could choose a regular ramp or an ECO-ramp.
Larger agricultural vehicles are best transported on a low-loader. Not necessarily because of the weight, but more importantly, due to the height. Specifically for this type of transport, we have further developed the existing agricultural low loader. To come up with this new concept, we spoke as many end-users as we could. This has led to a universal low-loader for the transport of agricultural vehicles.
