This DVD is a collection of footage, from three separate continents, of heavy haulage and abnormal load movements.
The journey begins in South Africa at the beginning of the new millennium, featuring four Rotran P12 Pacifics and one giant multi-axle Nicolas trailer – that country’s biggest heavy haulage combination. Even empty, this combination weighs in excess of 360 tonnes.
The next item on this programme was filmed in Europe during the summer of 2001; it presents footage of another heavy haulage manufacturing giant, Willeme. The CP team has captured an 8 x 4 WG250 model hauling a 135-tonne press from Belfort to Strasbourg.
The last stop is the Australian outback, where heavy haulage is arguably at its best. In this section two Mack tractors, one of which has a 72-speed gearbox, are caught hauling refurbished CAT 789B off-road dump trucks from Kalgoorlie to a gold mine near Laverton.
