The PowerBooster Models
Self-propelled vehicle and trailer in one - the PowerBooster models
PowerBooster models like the SCHEUERLE InterCombi PB or the SCHEUERLE-KAMAG K25 H PB are equipped with shiftable drive axles and can be towed at 80 km/h or, if required, powered by an equally shiftable Power Pack Unit (PPU).
They can be used for a great number of applications:
As a push truck:
Before starting on a critical incline, the driver activates the driving unit. As soon as a tractor lacks the power to proceed up the incline, i.e. the speed drops below 14 km/h, the drive engages automatically, thus providing for additional propulsive force. Once the incline has been climbed, the additional drive automatically disengages and the speed can be increased again according to the road conditions.
In normal road traffic as a trailer combination:
After switching off the drive, the drive unit can reach a speed of 80 km/h in the transport combination.
For in-plant transport operations:
Here, for in-plant transfers, the vehicle can be uncoupled from the tractor and controlled as a self-propelled transport combination by means of a wireless remote control. With it, the hydrostatic drive, lifting and lowering functions, hydraulic steering, brake system as well as the electric power supply are controlled. Short, maneuverable and extremely flexible!
Coupled mechanically "side-by-side": another possibility for in-plant transport operations is the mechanically coupled "side-by-side" combination. Due to the wide support base, loads with a high center of gravity can be transported safely.
Coupled mechanically "end-to-end": for extremely long combinations (with or without decks), the PowerBooster can be used at the front as a tractor and as a push truck at the rear.
