Volvo FH500 10x4 with PAC100 pusher axle for Peeman Transport
TAGS: truck modification, Terberg Techniek
Peeman Transport in the Netherlands asked Terberg Techniek to fit a Volvo FH500 8x4 tag tridem truck with a PAC100 pusher axle. The PAC100 is 10-tonne Volvo FAL10 axle with air suspension. As a result, the 8x4 truck is now a 10x4 unit and its legal GVW has increased from 36 tonnes to 46 tonnes.
As the lifting pusher axle works with the lifting tag axle, depending on whether the vehicle is loaded or not, the truck promises highly efficient operation.
Peeman transport specialises in the haulage of shipping containers. The body fitted by Hertoghs carrosserieën, combined with a tandem axle tralier, makes it possible to carry two 25ft containers within the Dutch statutory combination length limit of 18.75 metres.
