Tractor Trailer Rollover in Norway  

Recommended Posts

Topic Originally Created by Falken in December of 2007:

This is from last summer, the trailer was loaded with paper rolls. weight about 40 Tonns.
We used Air Cussions, and two heavy duty wreckers, one Vulcan V70 , and a Bro Wrecker.

The side of the road, the.. roadshoulder? 642.gif is very weak, sow when the truck drive to much to the right, the roadshoulder collapsed.

Thanks !

The Cushions are the Jumbo type, imported from US, by " Saferec " , the Vulcan dealer in Scandinavia.
Maybe I find som pictures of the valve bank on the computer at work, I dont think I have pics. of it on my own. .

We have a different weight regualtions, I think. and in the city we can`t have long trucks, because of the sharp corners, and tight intersection.

Theres is a difference between : Towing , and Recoverying. Recovery means to take a truck / bus from the road, and to the neerest possible place to set it down ( often the nears reparshop. o.l ) As long as we have some weight on the stearing axels. its Ok!.

Towing, over long distances requires 20% weight on the stearing axels. and we can have 27Tonns on a Tandem. MAX.

Thats why we have 4 axel trucks, whit weigths over the second stearing axel. som emptey, we drive whit full axelpreasure on the front.
Here is a picture of the valve bank.
