The 20 tons CPT Trailer provides the same high penetration force as the Track-Truck, CPT truck and CPT crawler, but at significantly lower capital cost. The main difference between the trailer versus the large self-propelled machines is that those carry their own ballast weight; whereas operations with the lighter trailer require extra time to set soil anchors to provide the required reaction force.
The anchors are set with a hand-operated anchor setting device, or an optional HYGAND hydraulic anchor setting unit powered from the trailer’s diesel engine and hydraulic power pack. With the HYGAND, anchor setting is considerably faster and easier.
The trailer is suitable for locations that are difficult to access with heavy units. The total weight of a standard CPT trailer is no more than 3,500 kg.
