ALE launch new truck
ALE, is a heavy lift and specialist transport provider who, with the assistance of Mitchell Powersystems, have unveiled the highly anticipated and latest addition to its transport fleet - “The Trojan”. This vehicle is declared to be the first in the next generation of heavylift transport and signals a major breakthrough in its industry for capability, fuel efficiency and reliability.
Designed by ALE engineers and produced in the UK, the Trojan’s unique feature is its ability to link up multiple tractor units in a command and drone convoy. The powertrain was designed and specified by Mitchells, being fitted with a Volvo Penta 6-cylinder engine, 6-speed Allison Transmission, a Kessler Auxillary Transmission and Dana Spicer twin-steer axle.
Gary Butler, ALE’s Project Manager and designer of the vehicle commented: “Through the custom drive and transmissions, we are now able to deliver the required power to move abnormal loads more efficiently, more smoothly and in a more environmentally friendly way. It was very much a team effort and without the hard work from everyone involved, the truck could not have been created.”
