Van der Vlist Poland moved three of these large Caterpillar 988H wheel loaders. The new machines were shipped out from the US to Belgium where Van der Vlist continued the onward transport by road to a granite mine in Poland. Each machine was moved over 1000 km by road in Europe, a journey of 5 days.
Weighing in at 60 ton each, these machines are also 4.1m high, so to deal with these dimensions, a specialist low bed modular trailer was used along with a 4 axle tractor unit. From the pictures, you can see that the CAT machine is running very low to the ground because of the low bed element to the trailer. The 6 modular axles then help to spread the weight of the load. In total the dimensions of the complete transport were 28m long, 3.7m wide and only 4.3m high.
