New Faymonville Trailer

The latest addition to the MA Ponsonby diverse trailer fleet is this brand new Faymonville Multimax four axle semi-low loader.

                         

With a maximum GVW of 70,000kg, this fully power steered, double extending trailer (for loads up to 22m in length) can make easy work of a hard job.

The trailer which arrived in March is already proving its capabilities and is shown below working for one of our regular clients moving this “Olympic Class” hopper barge. At 20m long and 4.2m wide, the barge required careful manoeuvring into a busy Stourport boat yard before being craned into the River Severn.

Long (spud) Legs!

As we all know, legs normally come in pairs, but last week these 20m long “spud-legs” were heading down the M6 two by two!

The “spud-legs” are used to stabilise floating craft in deep water and were being moved from Tewkesbury to Ipswich. The two 25 metre long combinations required the use of our extending flat trailers, one of them a  Nooteboom power steered triple extender.

Here they are seen arriving at Corley Services complete with our own self escort safely guarding the rear.

VB66 MAP Transformation

VB66 MAP has always been well recognised as the Peaky Blinders truck on the MAP fleet, but over the last few months some dramatic changes have taken place to this award-winning vehicle. In September 2020, it was stripped down to the bare essentials and sent to Chassis Engineering in Stoke on Trent to be converted from a 6×2 tractor unit to 6×2 drawbar prime mover. It is now fitted with an 8.5m cheese-wedge flat body, twist locks and an 8 tonne winch. This truck is ideal for loading plant, machinery and road vehicles.

VB20 MAP joined the fleet in September 2020 and as you can see is certainly pulling its weight. Seen here transporting a CAT D6 dozer on route from Purfleet to Caterpillar at Cannock, the 24-tonne machine gives an all-up weight of approximately 50 tonnes.  STGO movements are a regular task for the Ponsonby fleet, with a large variety of suitable trailers, whether it be multi-axle, extendable or low bed.

FORS Silver – Accreditation continued

Once again we are pleased to confirm that MA Ponsonby Ltd has successfully passed the annual audit to maintain the FORS Silver Standard.

As the fleet continues to grow, both with additional vehicles and an ever increasing variety of trailer types, the FORS Silver Standard ensures the Company can continue to offer professional and qualified services to clients, particularly those engaged with such projects as HS2.
