SCHEUERLE Expands Platform Vehicle Series with the new K25 L

When developing the new modular K25 L platform vehicle, SCHEUERLE focused on the transport safety of loads with a high centre of gravity. This is an important consideration, especially for fail-proof transport of components for the more powerful wind turbines. The K25 L also scores favourably through its maximum stability when transporting construction machinery or plants.

The energy industry is developing more and more powerful wind turbines. Their increased dimensions and, in particular, the related high centre of gravity of the load, require an extremely stable means of transport with an especially low loading area. SCHEUERLE, a subsidiary of the TII Group, has developed the modular K25 L series platform vehicles for ensuring stable and flexible transport of such products. The addition of L (Low) in the type indicates the particularly low platform height, along with the use of larger tyres.

Track width currently unique in the vehicle segment
The track width of the K25 L is 2100 mm along with an external width of 3,000 mm, which is over 10% more than what competitors´ offer. Due to its large track width, the K25 L considerably reduces the risk of accidents caused by overturning when transporting wind tower segments with large diameters; this greatly enhances safety.

Low platform height despite larger tyres
The technically possible axle load of the K25 L is up to 23 tons or up to 13.9 tons at 80 km/h. In addition, the tyres used are larger and more robust: 285/70 R 19.5. Despite the larger tyres, the lowered platform height of 875 mm (loaded) or 910 mm (unloaded), facilitates easy driving under loads. The high axle compensation of 680 mm also makes driving on uneven surfaces very safe. Moreover, the maximum steering angle of +/- 60 degrees ensures optimal manoeuvrability. Lifting and lowering is carried out with the help of a PPU (Power Pack Unit) from the Z19 series. This is low-emission in accordance with Stage V.

More loading options due to maximum bending moment
The highest negative and positive bending moment on the market creates economic flexibility for the operator through additional loading options. This is especially advantageous for products such as tower segments or nacelles (machine housings) that feature high point loads in combination with a high centre of gravity, and for products whose centre of gravity lies far outside the support centre, as is the case when transporting long goods with the help of swivel bolsters. Furthermore, the K25 L has a 30% higher torsional stiffness compared to similar products, which guarantees cornering safety during transport.

Innovative braking and high safety
EBS ensures enhanced braking performance and a shorter braking distance. Depending on the truck tractor, a diagnosis is possible from the driver's cab. Likewise, connecting to a smartphone is possible. The headlights on each individual bogie add to the safety, enabling the driver to comfortably negotiate the route even at night.

Multifunctional and versatile
The K25 L series fulfil the requirements of platform vehicles with two to six axles. The vehicles can be combined with goosenecks, drawbars, swivel bolsters, bridges, and tower adapters, and used in ambient temperatures up to minus 25 degrees. Its versatility makes the K25 L the first choice beyond the wind power industry for the construction sector and for the transport of plant and machinery with high centres of gravity.
