When the going gets tough, the tough get going
Turbines, boilers, bridge beams or other architectural or industrial components: heavy, oversized and extremely precious loads. To transport them safely, even in more extreme weather and road conditions, we have created unique vehicles of proper power, fitted with tailor made solutions for transportation and lifting.
Astra vehicles are developed to tackle the most difficult challenges.
The ASTRA extra-reinforced steel chassis provides unparalleled loading capacity, to satisfy the most demanding requirements of towing missions.
Astra vehicles offer a wide range of traction solutions: from the simple and robust 6×4 version, to the 8×6 and 8×8 versions, all are extremely stable and available in a rigid version, with single or double cab.
Engines offer a maximum power output up to 560 hp, and can be equipped with larger radiators and additional cooling systems for hot climates. The versatile and robust drive train includes torque converter gearboxes and extra-strong drive axles (up to 10 ton on the front, and 20 ton on the rear).
Vehicles can be fitted with larger tyres, 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 in excess of 300 tons.
