Schwebende SPMTs von SCHEUERLE in den Schweizer

Press Release
Cocoa, Fl., September 2013
Saving a second tractor during transport, allowing self-propelled
transport on site, couplable with other brands – visitors at Precision
Enterprises Inc., USA, show great interest in the K25 PowerBooster
The K25 PowerBooster event at Precision Enterprises Facilities in Cocoa,
Florida, was meant to be all about the groundbreaking possibilities, the versatile
PowerBooster concept offers. Nevertheless, another feature of the K25 modular
trailer met an equally huge interest amongst the visitors: The K25 can be easily
coupled with certain competitor brand vehicles.
The event in Cocoa was a great success and an interesting experience for the visitors.
Many of them took the opportunity to drive one of the combinations themselves. Several
different combinations of the K25 PowerBooster (4-file mixed combination, mixed
combination with decks/spacer, mixed combination with PowerBooster) – all coupled
with competitor brand vehicles – were available for a test drive. “We are overwhelmed
by the reaction to our invitation and have led many interesting discussions on the
PowerBooster and the K25 in general” says Bernd Schwengsbier, President of TII
Sales. “We have a strong product and the market is ready for the K25 PowerBooster.
We offer a huge increase in efficiency for our customers” continues Schwengsbier. The
versatility of the SCHEUERLE-KAMAG K25 PowerBooster is, in fact, impressing –
basically it is a five-in-one solution.
1. The trailer is equipped with drive axles and can be towed at 50 miles/h,
supported by a PowerPackUnit (PPU), as needed. Before driving on a critical
incline, the driver starts the PPU. As soon as the tractor no longer has sufficient
power to manage the incline, i.e. the speed drops below 9 miles/h, the driving
gear starts automatically, thus providing sufficient thrust. Once the incline has
been overcome, the additional driving gear shuts off automatically and speed
can be increased again in accordance with the road conditions.
2. After the driving gear is switched off, the drive unit can achieve a speed of 50
miles/h in the transport combination. The K25 PB also distinguishes itself

through its sturdy chassis construction, +/- 300 mm axle compensation and 60°
steering angle.
3. During in-plant tasks, the drive unit with PPU – with or without K25 platform
trailer – can be uncoupled from the tractor and controlled as self-propelled
transport combination via a mobile control unit. This remote controls the
hydrostatic drive, lifting and lowering functions, hydraulic steering, brake system
as well as electrical power supply.
4. A further possibility for the in-house transport is the, mechanically coupled, sideby-side combination. Due to the wide supporting base, payloads with a high
centre of gravity can be transported.
5. The PowerBooster can be used as a traction unit at the front or as a thrust
machine at the rear part of extremely long combinations (with or without decks).
With all these different kind of possible combinations the PowerBooster is an
all-rounder of the heavy duty transport.
