Turnkey in Tight Quarters: Split Trailers Reduce Height with Inches to Spare

Deep South recently released a new video highlighting a complex project that included coordinating international shipping from Spain to the client’s site, transloading the drums to a deck barge at the port, and barging them to the client’s site, constructing a new custom earthen ramp, and executing the roll off operation. Once inside the plant, the job became even more complicated as we had to navigate a critical main-line rail crossing in 9 hours while putting no weight on the tracks – and also while bridging a tunnel and encountering numerous limiting height and width requirements, some with only 2” of clearance. Equipment used included 12-axle lines of double-wide Scheuerle SPMT, 10-axle lines of Scheuerle Split SPMT, barge ramps, 80’ jumper bridges, jack and slide equipment, and jacking cans.

Equipment Spotlight: 52-ton Scheuerle Split Trailers

When dimensional restrictions along a route limit the transportation of oversized cargo, Deep South's 52-ton Scheuerle SPMT-SL (Split) Trailers can reduce the overall transport height while minimizing transport width. This system, when combined with our in-house fabrication capabilities, can reduce transport heights to within inches of the total load height.
