- Mission highlights
Some loads are too heavy, or too big, to be transported on a standard truck. Turbines, boilers, bridge beams and other architectural or industrial components are huge – and indivisible. In order to move them, special vehicles are required, powerful enough and equipped for hauling or hoisting large items. We do such vehicles.
- Astra for Heavy Haulage
ASTRA extra-reinforced steel structure provides unparalleled loading capacity to satisfy the most demanding requirements of towing missions.
Our HD9 offers an ample range of traction solutions, from the simple (and strong) 6×4 to the ultra-stable 8×6 and 8×8 versions – all of them rigid or tractor, with single, double or sleeper cab.
HD9 engines offer a maximum power output of up to 560 hp, and can be equipped with increased-size radiators and additional cooling systems for hot climates. The versatile and robust driveline includes torque converter gearboxes and extra-strong driving axles (up to10 t front, 20 t rear).
Trucks can be specified with extra-wide tires, special towing hooks, reinforced cross members and high-capacity fuel tanks. Tailor-made transformations are performed directly in our factory to guarantee the highest quality standards.
Everything is designed to perform well (and last) with high-haulage vehicle combinations up to 400 t.
When the challenge is taken to the extreme, then ASTRA comes into play.
