Multi-axle trailer for heavy-haul applications

Feb. 26, 2015

Faymonville is introducing a new specialty trailer for the North American heavy-haul market. The HighwayMax is an extendible on-road heavy haul trailer with 9 hydraulically steered pendulum axles and a technical payload of 260,000 lbs.

The double extendable highway multi-axle trailer fully complies with national regulations in respect to axle group dimensions, allowing a maximum payload, the company said. The trailer can be easily retracted to attain a truck/trailer length not to exceed 90 ft., eliminating the need for escorts in most of the United States and Canada.

The HighwayMax has a low tare weight of approximately 62,500 lbs. with a loading platform that can be extended up to 89 ft., 2 in.

The trailer features: 

  • The ability to handle high point loads of 40,000 lbs. over each axle bearing
  • Pendulum axles with a stroke of 23.6 in. and a turning angle of -60 deg./ +60 deg.
  • Axles allow for a very narrow turning radius for maximum maneuverability
  • The hydraulic and mechanical 5th wheel load adjustment allows for maximum operational flexibility, as well as hydraulic gooseneck compensation with the first axle group.

Faymonville said the extremely strong and torsion stiff frame includes multiple lashing rings and load securement points. The trailer is constructed of a fully metalized frame which ensures the corrosion protection.
