Transportation of combines
Transportation of combines is the most widespread type of oversized freights across Ukraine, a distinctive feature of these transportations is the big overall dimensions of the transported freights, and it is height to 420 cm width to 430 cm length to 20 meters (together with a reaper) weight to 34 tons. Each model has its own characteristics that are taken into account when planning and implementing the transportation of agricultural machinery. When transporting from Europe, the wheels are removed to reduce the overall parameters, here it is important to be able to load the combine on the trawl without the use of expensive cranes, only small loaders are used to load wheels and reapers – savings of up to 700 euros on freight. When transporting during harvesting, the accuracy and reliability of the carrier are very important, as the saying goes “This day feeds the year” and simple equipment is very expensive for the customer. Given these and other factors, we try to provide our customers with the most comfortable conditions for cooperation.
In the carriage of agricultural machinery we guarantee:
- Operational coordination of shipping our logisticians
- Rapid supply of cars
- Proper paperwork
- Safe loading and unloading equipment
- Combine shipping on time
- Professional dismantling and installation, if necessary,
- Cargo insurance
- Customs clearance
- The optimum value of the services
Our company uses its own low-frame trailers (trawls) to transport the combine harvester. Thanks to a large fleet and the presence of 85 special trailers, the most optimal and safe solution is selected to reduce delivery costs. It is possible to transport equipment with reapers up to 12 meters.
The equipment is loaded through the front part of the platform, the front part (guznek) is disconnected, the platform itself falls to the ground, after which the combine enters the platform at a minimum angle. It’s fast, it’s convenient and most importantly it’s safe, because in the case of loads through the high rear balcony frequent falls of equipment with critical consequences. Loading is accompanied by attachments (without disassembly) which reduces delivery costs
For reliable fastening of agricultural machinery on a low-frame platform the strengthened chains of 8-10 classes of durability (to 5 tons of loading on a chain), and also bars for reliable fixing that prevents a roll of equipment are used. It is also important to note that front-entry trawls are more desirable and versatile, as wheeled and tracked vehicles and combines can drive on their own on the loading platform, which makes it possible to abandon the use of loading mechanisms.
