How much does an SPMT weigh?
Today, modules can weigh up to 17,200 tons; the sky is the limit.
What is SPMT construction?
A Self-Propelled Modular Transporter is a combination of multi-axle platforms operated through a state-of-the-art computer-controlled system that is capable of pivoting 360 degrees as needed to lift, carry, and set very large and heavy loads of many types.
What is axle in SPMT?
The axles are coordinated by the control system to allow the SPMT to turn, move sideways or even rotate in place. Some SPMTs allow the axles to telescope independently of each other so that the load can be kept flat and evenly distributed while moving over uneven terrain.
Who invented the SPMT?
With the first self-propelled transport modules used in shipbuilding and the SPMT (self-propelled modular transporter) invented by SCHEUERLE in the nineteen-eighties, the potential payloads suddenly increased and are basically unlimited today.
How wide is a SPMT?
The SPMTs shall consist of four-axle units or six-axle units, with powerpacks. Each unit shall be either 8 feet (ft) (2.4 meters (m)) wide with four wheels per axle or 10 ft (3 m) wide with eight wheels per axle; the axle spacing shall not exceed 5 ft (1.5 m).
Can a trailer be self propelled?
The self-propelled trailer (SPT) is similar to a conventional trailer but with a motorized module on the front. The SPT is used to transport a load that is too big and too heavy for a truck or low loader.
What is SPMT operator?
The SPMT Operator assists Mammoet in execution of engineered heavy transport. The SPMT Operator is capable of setting up, operating, inspecting and performing basic maintenance on computer controlled, self propelled, modular hydraulic transport trailers.
What is the difference between SPMT and SPT?
Different steering modes SPT is controlled by the linkage rods. It is a kind of overall steering mode. The SPMT is controlled by a worm and gear or a rack and pinion, with each suspension steering independently.

What is self propelled trailer?
The self-propelled trailer (SPT) is similar to a conventional trailer but with a motorized module on the front. The SPT is used to transport a load that is too big and too heavy for a truck or low loader. A self-propelled conventional trailer can carry loads up to 36 metric tons per axle line including its own weight.
How are travel trailers powered?
RVs use both AC, alternating current, and DC, direct current, to power the components of your electrical system. The 12-volt DC system runs the electrical components of the engine and battery of your ride while the 120-volt AC system runs all the typical appliances and power outlets found on most RVs.
Can I plug my RV into a 110 outlet?
Yes, you can plug your camper into a 110 outlet, but as mentioned before, you’ll probably need an adapter. Only a few small RVs, such as pop-ups or teardrops, will have a standard household plug. But, with a modern RV with a kitchen, bathroom, and heating/cooling system, you need a 30-amp or 50-amp plug.
