Grove GMK3050-1 50 Tonne Mobile Crane in Chesterfield, lifting 10 Tonne Train Track Panels for Network Rail with 25 Meters of Extended Boom @ 10 Meters Radius

Product ID: 16533

Altida Crane Hire are specialists at lifting train track panels, using our Grove 50 Tonne crane, for Network Rail onto Lawsons Haulage new revolutionary 30 tonne tilting trailer.

The Lawsons Tilting Trailer enables extra wide loads, such as a lot of 5200mm wide switch and cross train track panels, to sit on top of the flatbed and be tilted. Without tilting the trailer the train track panel would take up 2 lanes on UK roads when being delivered, as all extra wide loads require a special abnormal load VR1 movement order that can take up to 8 weeks to process, including organising police escorts to be issued depending upon the relevant Police departments which can take a lot of time, all to enable the track panel to be transported.

However, after tilting a 5200mm load at 41° this means that the train track panel is now only 3500mm wide, meaning it now qualifies for only needing a 48 hour abnormal load movement order.

It also means that the track panel will also be able to travel under the majority of UK bridges, as the 41° tilt angle has been precisely calculated to accommodate every eventuality when transporting Network Rail train track panels.

This revolutionary tilting trailer will change the way Network Rail maintain the UK’s train tracks, allowing for train track panels to be transported quickly, efficiently, and effectively. The New Generation Tilting Trailer that is currently being built will be able to accommodate even wider loads.

Before the Lawsons Haulage Tilting Trailer, each extra wide track panels would have to be stripped down after factory assembly, disassembled, transported on several other standard trailers in bits, then requiring a team of 6 Network Rail service men to re-assemble the extra wide panel on site by the train line, with the track panel taking a long time to put back together and not always going back together correctly from factory manufacture. Now with the Tilting Wagon the S & C panels can be transported in one piece in one go.

The Tilting Trailer solves all of this.
