Flatbed transporter, also known as construction machinery transporter, is mainly used to transport some non-removable objects like excavators, loaders, and harvesters.
Its varieties include Dongfeng Jinba flatbed trucks, FAW Jiefang flatbed trucks and other flatbed trucks, as well as semi-trailer flatbed trucks. The loaded goods range from 3 tons to 30 tons, which is suitable for long-distance transportation of construction machinery and some non-removable goods.
The flatbed truck is used for loading and transporting construction machinery, excavators, forklifts, harvesters and other construction machinery. It is suitable for long-distance transportation of construction machinery and some non-removable goods.
Before starting the flatbed truck, check the basic conditions to see if there are no obstacles around the flatbed truck; whether there are suspicious oil or water stains on the ground where the flatbed truck is parked; and whether the tire pressure of the flatbed truck chassis is sufficient. Tire pressure is an important factor affecting the transportation safety of flatbed trucks, because the tires will compress and expand during transportation, which is the so-called tire deformation, especially when the tire pressure is low and the vehicle speed is high, this phenomenon is even more serious. Obviously, the internal temperature of the tire at this time is abnormally high, which may cause the separation of the rubber layer and the cover layer, or the breaking and scattering of the outer tread rubber, which may cause the tire to burst and cause vehicle accidents. Therefore, in any case, the tire pressure of the flatbed transport vehicle must be guaranteed to the specified value in the manufacturer’s standard. Appropriate tire pressure also has a great impact on the fuel economy of flatbed trucks. Improper tire pressure will increase the rolling resistance of the flatbed truck tires, thereby increasing the fuel consumption of the flatbed truck.
