Could there really be two truck trailers carrying one piece of heavy equipment? Yes, even though this process sounds crazy, it is a method used to transport many heavy-duty machines such as large-sized heavy-duty trucks and bulldozers. What about the system, you may be wondering? Let’s clarify the answer to the question of how it works in the rest of our article.
How do two trucks carrying one piece of heavy equipment move?
First of all, the trailers of two trucks are connected to each other with iron panels. But this alone is not enough to make transportation safe. Since the management of the two trucks is independent from each other, it is very important that the two truck drivers act in harmony with each other. Especially on curves, communication should be maximized to achieve synchronization as if a single truck was turning. Otherwise, even if the trailers are connected to each other, if the trucks cannot be synchronized, transportation poses an extreme risk.
This situation is not sufficient with synchronization provided only in steering management. At the same time, throttle reactions are equally important. Again, we can include brakes in this situation. It is very important that both drivers accelerate the trucks and slow down at the same time.
In what cases is this transportation carried out?
This process is a need that arises when a suitable trailer cannot be provided. There are large trailers specially developed for heavy transportation. If these trailers cannot be provided, two trucks come side by side and their trailers are connected to each other, thus transportation is carried out by placing heavy equipment on these trailers.
