Faymonville Releases MultiMAX Single-Drop Trailer


July 9, 2019 -  A 3+3 single-drop trailer called MultiMAX is the latest member of the North American trailer range from Faymonville. The new trailer has a strong chassis design, high stability, and great versatility, thanks to a combination of its payload capacity, maneuverability, and low mobilization cost. It has a double stretch, allowing flexible spacings between the axle tridems and a total deck length up to 77’.

The hydraulic lifting and lowering of the neck allows optimal ground clearance even on uneven terrain or when passing railway crossings and other obstacles. While the three-axle front bogie with caster steered axles follows the truck, the rear bogie counter-steers using state-of-the-art king-pin steering including remote control override. This combination ensures an ideal turning radius and helps to manage and enter tight corners and jobsites.

As it remains within a length of 53’ and a width of 100” when closed, it can be mobilized extremely fast and without any escorts or permits. From its closed length, the trailer stretches to over 90’ including the gooseneck, thanks to a double stretch beam between gooseneck and front bogie, and a single extension between the two tridems. For additional load support over the extended stretch beams, the trailer comes with several extra bunk sections.

The platform over the axle bogies is closed and covered with timber. The trailer can be widened up to 10’ in these areas, using galvanized pull-out outriggers. Removable ramps allows for an easy loading process of the machinery. For an extra-long lifecycle, the MultiMAX chassis is fully metalized (zinc-plated), which ensures the best corrosion protection available. 

Finally, Faymonville is the only European manufacturer in the North American market that uses electric and pneumatic parts that are completely DOT approved. This also means that spare parts for these components are easily available throughout the U.S. and Canada, including at dealer branches.
