When a curtainsider truck isn’t sturdy or strong enough for the job, TSL calls in a more capable vehicle. Listed below are just some of the dedicated trucks and lorries that are typically used for Karratha heavy transport.
Rigid trucks are made with up to five axles and a single rigid chassis. These vehicles are often used to transport dry goods such as toilet paper and shipping containers. They are best suited to well-maintained roads.
Flat-bed trucks are rigid lorries used with flat trailers. This type of vehicle will often be used to transport large, bulky items such as concrete pipes and water tanks. Often the cargo is then blocked or lashed to keep it steady and stable at high speeds.
Articulated trucks consist of a front unit and a trailer joined together. Because they are more flexible than rigids, they are often used for excessively large loads. They perform well on sites with different surface types such as dirt or gravel roads.
Side-loaders enable easier loading and unloading because they allow goods to be placed on the vehicle sideways on. This means better use can be made of the available space and also makes it easier to balance out the load.
Low-loaders (sometimes called lowboy trailers or lowboys) sit closer towards the road than standard trailers. This gives extra height at the top, enabling the carriage of taller items such as bulldozers.
Prime movers are heavy-duty towing engines that are designed to haul trailered loads.
Mostly, the vehicles used by TSL are also listed under Australia’s NHVAS (National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme).
The trucks and lorries we use for heavy haulage in Karratha are sturdy, strong and resilient. They come with specially designed features to enable them to shift heavy and oversized items easily, quickly and safely. For example, vehicles may be fitted with equipment such as collapsible mirrors, grabrails, cameras, lockdown ramps, toolboxes, fuel-saving features, spring/airbag suspension, skid plates, side marker lamps, and aerodynamic technology. Some vehicles can be steered from the rear which enables them to stay steady even at top speeds and when going around tight bends in the road.
