@Ram

The MAN roadtrain is photoshopped. The 'tractor' unit is a rear tipper, which would make a very impractical towing vehicle. The length should be much less and the tractor should be capable of tipping sideways.

In any case, number of tyres X 3T will give you max possible technical load limit. This may further reduce based on configuration of wheels / axles, etc. Add to this, legal restrictions.


Indian tratec Hydraulic traliers have a load capacity of 18 tons per axle

German Golhofer THP-SL have a capcity of 36 tons per axle

@Mad Monkey:
If i am not wrong, TRATEC hydraulic trailers would have 8 tyres per axle of R20 size. In which case, 18T is still within 24T(8*3T per tyre).

I am not aware of the configuration of the Goldhofer's you are talking about.

It would be interesting to know if there is any other way the rate load is arrived at. Please do share.

Cheers

There were two of these trailers and were being moved along the highway by using four Volvo "tractor / horse" and there were three jeeps. They had stopped at this place as the high tension overhead wire impeded further movement. (second picture)

The only time I saw something equally astounding was to see a railway engine and carriages being transported up to Srinagar from Jammu on trucks. However did not have a camera to take pictures then.
Great find dude, are you aware how much does the load weighs?

This report says that the prime mover were 600hp German machines, does any one know which is the prime mover used for it? Is it Mercedes or MAN?

Why is one of the tires is smaller than all others? See the blue truck's trailer unit.

Ofcourse Actros has got tractors, but not yet launched in Indian soil. Infact in international market Actros SLT is one of the largest super heavy primer movers used.

Scania has started to supply tippers in 8x4 configuration in tie-up with L&T.

Tractor version of Actros is coming to India shortly. I has already completed homologation, but delaying due to the low capacity of the excisting plant. So hopfully we can expect it by mid of next year, after the new plant is in fullswing. But Actros SLT is a build on order truck, hence if they get an order, they will defenetly import it for the clients.
