AEC 8x8 1934

AEC 8x8, delivered new to Australia in 1934, built by AEC under instruction by the British Army, its purpose was to act as a "road train" in outback Australia.
Apparently 3 were made, this is the only one delivered to Australia and known to exist. Specifications :
130hp diesel engine, 3 speed +2 speed aux, rear winch, 4 differentials, fully independent suspension, steering on front and rear bogies (which rotate on chain driven turntables)
12.00x20 tires. This truck covered over 1,200,000 miles in the 12 years. It was known as the "government road train", before being sold to private operators, then rescued as scrap in the late 70's, it is now restored in the Truck museum in Alice Springs, central Australia.
The country that this truck worked in was, and is extremely rugged desert dunes and rocky, with extreme temperatures, completely road less at that time.
The AEC pulled 2 Dyson 8 wheel self-tracking trailers and 2 more 4 wheel trailers.
Nominal load capacity was 15 tons, but it regularly dragged up to 45.

8x8 prototype from Russia, 1933. Designed under direction of E. A. Chudakov and built at the 'Red Putilovets' plant with many parts of commercially available parts, this 8 wheels drive chassis was intended to study mobility and stability of this kind of vehicle. Next year, balloon tires were fitted. http://myzaodno.ru/news/2309-zabte_strasti_88_eksperimentalne_chetrexosne_gruzo/, http://alternathistory.com/zabytye-strasti-8-8-eksperimentalnye-chetyrekhosnye-gruzoviki-v-sssr, http://www.offroadvehicle.ru/AZBUCAR/NIII%2021/Vehicle%20Prototype%208x8%20Chudakov%201934.jpg

 

Kamag K24 Modular Transporter

KAMAG K24 Modular Transporter. One should say it is an off-road vehicle : many wheels (all driven ?), long travel suspensions, high ground clearance, but it is not. In fact this Modular Transporter is built for moving extra-large loads on rather flat and hard ground. https://www.kamag.com/fr/produits/kamag-k24/kamag-k24.html

Otto the Alma Antenna Transporter

Otto, the ALMA antenna transporter, a close up of one of the ALMA transporters. These 130-tonne mechanical beasts of burden heave their formidable frames along on a set of 28 wheels, at a top speed of 20 km/h. They are used to reposition ALMA antennas across the Chajnator plateau, and, despite their monstrous size, they do it with millimeter precision.

Otto in action, http://www.eso.org/public/unitedkingdom/images/mg_3623-editar-cc/   Pictured here is one of the two ALMA Transporters, named Otto, which are responsible for carrying the ALMA antennas up to the Chajnantor Plateau, a site some 5000 meters above sea level in northern Chile. Otto can be seen in action in this video. The ALMA transporters are such an integral part of the ALMA facility that they can almost be considered as part of the telescope. Without the two vehicles, the construction, operation, and maintenance of the array would not be possible. Credit : ESO/A.Duro

Otto the Alma Antenna Transporter

Otto, the ALMA antenna transporter. The first of the two 130-ton ALMA antenna transporters was named ''Otto'' on 5 October 2007 to highlight the remarkable achievement these unique machines represent. These vehicles will operate at 5,000 meters altitude, where the air is rare, and they are able to place 115-ton antennas with a precision of a few millimeters.
