Volvo FH 540 - Baetsen

This sharp Volvo FH 540 of Baetsen from Veldhoven (NL) stood during a weekend on a parking in Aichstetten (DE). The combination was with a cargo from Northern-Ireland on the move to Switzerland.

Attached is a 3-axle Faymonville low loader with type STBZ-3VA. The low loader has pendel axles and can load 47.2 tonnes. The bed of the trailer is five meters extendable.

Behind the front axle is a large storage compartment made.

Behind the cabin are a large dieseltank and another three storage compartments made. Below the tank are multiple compressed-air tanks installed. Many lights take care of good vision rearwards in the dark.

With special thanks to the driver to turn on the lights for this nice night shot!
