This volume is an illustrated collection of the vehicles and support equipment involved in the transport of challenging and unique loads. Introducing another aspect of the world of heavy haulage – the heavy-lift mobile crane – the author attempts to capture these magnificent machines both on the road and undertaking their own contracted tasks.
In over twenty years, David Lee has photographed various models of tractor-trailer combinations engaged in difficult hauls in Great Britain. Among the exciting photographs in this volume is the largest and most powerful truck built by a British manufacturer at the time of publication. This is an Alvis Unipower MH8875 8×8 tractor with its type TST 70 MD 6/2 trailer designed and assembled by Nicolas. We see it undergoing reliability tests with a Challenger tank.
There are many other exceptional loads in this book, not forgetting the mobile cranes.
