The Broshuis public day in January is attracting lots of people. The public is formed by customers, employees, transport professionals and of course a lot of heavy haulage fans. The line up of Broshuis customer equipment is very impressive on this day.
Polish heavy haulage operator Raste is relatively new. The company was founded in 1999 in a town called Ryki. The Polish operator uses Volvo, MAN and DAF trucks. The semi-trailer are supplied by brands like Broshuis, Nooteboom, Kaiser and Langendorf.
A four axled DAF CF owned by Dutch operator Boerman is transporting a unit. The rig is most likely heading to a new construction site where the builder needs a temporary office. Boerman is doing a lot of transports like this one.
An HLS Almelo heavy haulage combo just came of the ferry at Hook of Holland. The MAN TGX double drive tractor is hooked to a Faymonville five axled semi low loader. The load, a piece of machinery, is traditionally covered by tarps.
Dutch opertorVan Der Vlist was the first to use five and even six axled tractors for its heavy haulage business. The multi-axled concept allowed much higher kingpin loads. Another issue is maneuvrability, this kind of tractors often don't need a jeep dolly.
Boels is a rental company for the construction equipment. The transport of the equipment is mostly done in-house. It runs a fleet of dedicated trucks for this purpose. Quite a lot of them are supplied by Iveco. This picture is showing a twin steered Stralis hooked to a Faymonville semi low loader.
