Steel Beam Transporter Truck


Last Updated . Click "Updates" above to see the latest.

These odd looking trucks are used to transport steel beams. It allows them to be carried on a truck with a shorter wheelbase than an articulated or three axle truck, which means that they are easier to manoeuvre around towns. The driver sits in the centre of the truck and the beams are loaded each side of the cab. No space for passengers! If the beam is longer than the truck, there are drop panels front and back to balance the load. Sometimes they are loaded with other ‘long items’ such as lampposts, or wooden roof forms or beams too.

I’ve seen trucks like this often in France, but nowhere else. Do they exist in other parts of the world?
