Vehicles Used for Heavy Haulage in Kalgoorlie
Rigids: Rigid lorries have up to five axles fitted to the frame. They are usually used for transporting large items across well-maintained roads.
Flat-bed lorries: These are rigid trucks with flat trailers. They are often used to transport large, bulky items such as steel girders or concrete pipes. Cargo is sometimes contained within blocks or lashed to limit movement during transit.
Articulated lorries: These trucks can handle uneven roads and are more flexible than traditional lorries due to pivot joints which allow them to turn more sharply.
Side-loaders: This type of truck can be loaded from the side, making it easier when there’s limited space. It means the truck doesn’t have to turn around or block the road.
Prime movers: These heavy-duty towing engines are designed to haul trailered loads.
Low-loaders: With two drops in their deck height, these semi-trailers can be used to accommodate taller loads such as bulldozers.
Vehicles will usually be accredited under Australia’s NHVAS (National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme).
Kalgoorlie Heavy Haulage Equipment
TSL’s providers use several supplementary devices to ensure your cargo is loaded, unloaded and transported in a safe and efficient manner. Here are a few examples of the specialized equipment used:
Forklifts: These small industrial trucks are used to move small pieces of cargo over short distances, for example, boxes of dry goods. They are used for loading and unloading goods to and from larger vehicles.
Cranes: Used to lift loads that cannot be rolled on and off the transportation vehicle.
Platform/flat-bed trailers: Attached to the back of prime movers or articulated trucks to transport loads or equipment. They can usually be loaded/unloaded from the sides.
Jinkers and Dollies: These are trailer extensions that are added to the main vehicle in order to maximize weight-lifting capacity and distribute the load. Jinkers are often used for transporting logs.
