Bucket-wheel excavator top gantry frame

It has out-of-the-ordinary dimensions (it is 11 metres long, 3.8 metres high and 8.6 metres wide) and weighs 45 tonnes – this top gantry frame will be used as a chassis for a bucket-wheel excavator

Because it is 8.6 metres wide, it was not possible to transport the part – which was manufactured on SMI Drulingen’ premises in Drulingen, France – using the road itineraries usually taken by wide loads. So the A4 motorway was temporarily closed to traffic and an access road was modified near Hochfelden, to enable the convoy to exit the motorway without it having to go through toll booths
