Transportation of harvesters with TAD

Among the many varieties of oversized transportation, a special place is occupied by the transportation of combine harvesters. In Ukraine, the delivery of combines is one of the most popular types of transportation of oversized cargo. The main distinguishing feature of such transportation is the need to work with cargo of very large dimensions.
Separate varieties and models of combines can have a length of 20 meters or more (including the header), a height of more than 4 meters and the same width. The weight of such a combine can be 30-40 tons. For the transportation of such goods, a special permit is required, as well as suitable transport.

How large harvesters are transported

Transportation of large-size harvesters is carried out on special low-frame platforms – trawls, which have a low center of gravity and are adapted to transport loads of several tens of tons. Before transportation, it is necessary to study the features of the transported equipment.
This allows you to simplify and speed up the operations of loading, unloading and secure cargo. If we are talking about a combine, then during transportation the header is removed, as well as the wheels, which are transported separately to reduce the dimensions to those acceptable in Europe.
The moment with loading and unloading operations is very important: the combine can drive onto the trawl under its own power or you have to use additional equipment (cranes, for example), which increases the total cost of transportation.

In addition, transportation from Europe involves the passage of several borders, so TAD also deals with customs clearance issues, ultimately guaranteeing an affordable price tag for all transportation services in the complex.
The main unit of equipment for the transport of combines in the company TAD is a low loader trawl. There is a choice of more than 130 units of semi-trailers, which allows you to choose the best option for transportation, taking into account the characteristics of the equipment.

Loading operations when transporting combines

Loading operations are carried out through the front of the trawl. Previously, it is disconnected from the car (in this case, the gooseneck is removed), after which it is laid on the ground surface. The entry angle in this position is minimal, which allows the harvester to easily enter the platform under its own power.
This method of loading is the safest and most reliable, since the equipment does not have the ability to accidentally fall off a high platform. At the same time, it is possible not to carry out dismantling work to remove the header, for example, which significantly reduces transportation costs.
After the arrival of equipment on the trawl, it is necessary to securely fix it on the platform for safe transportation. To do this, use high-strength chains up to 10 strength class and wooden bars for wheel stoppers and to prevent roll.
Low-frame trawls with front entry of self-propelled vehicles are considered the most profitable option for transportation of oversized cargo, as they can significantly reduce transportation costs without the use of cranes and other loading mechanisms.
