Transportation of a 360t Hitachi EX3600 excavator, Australia
ALE has transported a Hitachi EX3600 excavator in Foxleigh Mine, Middlemount, Queensland.
The excavator measured 8.7m (height) x 7.8m (width) x 9.4m (height) and weighed 360t. In order to transport the excavator, 18 axle lines of SPMT were used. These particular SPMTs had a 3.6m wide deck to provide more stability and better load spreading – two important criteria when travelling with a load of the above dimensions. On slopes a heavy duty prime mover was utilised to provide extra traction.
