Brisbane Heavy Transport Vehicles
A lot of the freight transported throughout Australia is carried in curtainsider trucks, the standardized vehicle for long-distance road travel. However, with larger items such as shipping containers, yachts, and cranes, this type of vehicle isn’t large or sturdy enough and a more capable vehicle is needed. Listed below are just some of the dedicated lorries and trucks used for heavy haulage in Brisbane.
A rigid truck is made with up to five axles and a single rigid chassis. This type of vehicle is often used to transport dry goods such as toilet paper and shipping containers. It is well suited to long-distance travel on well-maintained roads.
A flat-bed truck is a rigid lorry used with a flat trailer. This type of vehicle will often be used to transport large, bulky items such as concrete pipes and water tanks. Usually, the load is stowed using blocks or lashed down to keep it stable during transit.
An articulated truck consists of a front unit and a trailer joined together. Because this configuration is more flexible than a rigid, it’s typically used for excessively heavy loads. Articulated vehicles perform better than rigid on sites with different surface types, such as dirt tracks.
A side-loader makes loading and unloading more straightforward because, as the name suggests, it allows goods to be placed on the vehicle sideways on. This means better use can be made of the available space. It also makes it easier to balance out the load.
A low-loader (sometimes called a lowboy or a lowboy trailer) sits lower on the road than standard trailers. This gives extra height enabling taller items including industrial equipment.
A prime mover is a heavy-duty towing engine that is designed to haul trailered loads.
Vehicles used for Brisbane heavy transport often feature extra facilities such as lockdown ramps, toolboxes, fuel-saving features, spring or airbag suspension and skid plates which contribute to enhanced safety and performance throughout their use. Vehicles will usually be accredited under Australia’s NHVAS (National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme).
