For the transport of crane ballast within the 10-tonne legislative limit Nooteboom offers two ideal transport solutions: The flatbed Ballasttrailer with countersteering and the latest Manoovr Ballasttrailer. Since the introduction of the 6-axle Manoovr Ballasttrailer in the middle of last year an increasing number of crane hire companies are opting for the Manoovr instead of the traditional flatbed Ballasttrailer. One of the main considerations for choosing the MPL-97-06 Ballasttrailer is the low load floor of 780mm, which makes it safer when working at height. Other important reasons are the higher axle load of 12 t/axle, the suspension stroke of 500mm and the large steering angle of 60 degrees, all owing to the fact that the trailer is equipped with pendle axles.

Nooteboom Manoovr ideal transport solution for Liebherr LTM 1450-8.1
The Nooteboom Manoovr Ballasttrailer is the ideal transport solution for the transport of crane ballast and crane parts of the Liebherr LTM 1450. This is mainly due to the size of the base plate (7.71m) of the LTM1450, whereby from now on the ballast is positioned underneath the base plate.
That’s why most crane hire companies who have recently added the LTM1450 to their fleet have chosen the Manoovr Ballasttrailer as the transport solution for their crane parts. Some of the companies who have added the Manoovr MPL-97-06 to their fleet are Peinemann Kranen, Jos Blom Kraanverhuur B.V., Blansjaar, Kraanverhuur D. Boekestijn B.V., Kraan & Transportbedrijf van der Tol B.V and Haegens Kraanverhuur B.V.
Four years ago Nooteboom developed the new 7-axle Ballasttrailer with countersteering. In spite of the fact that axle loads were reduced from 12 to 10 tonnes Nooteboom managed to keep the load capacity of almost 70 tonnes on a par with the previous version. As a result the load capacity can be fully exploited within the 100-tonne network that has come into force in the Netherlands.
During the past few years dozens of crane hire companies throughout Europe have added this Ballasttrailer to their fleet because of its high load capacity, low maintenance costs and outstanding manoeuvrability due to a unique countersteering system.
