Huge helper for major roads
The area of Flensburg State Office for Road and Transport Schleswig-Holstein stretches from the North Sea to the Baltic Sea. Six locations serve a total of 58 km of federal highway, 367 km of federal roads and 1133 km state roads. Following the motto “huge helper for major roads” since last autumn, a new winter maintenance vehicle with Schmidt Equipment joined the fleet of the establishment in Schuby.
The MAN Truck is equipped with a Schmidt LS hydraulics for spreader, snow plows and Hiab hook lift. A Stratos S60-42 spreader of the latest generation ensures efficient de-icing, the front plow Schmidt ML 51 for maximum clearing width on motorways.
The multi-blade system of the ML 51-A alone guarantees exceptional clearing quality over a width of 4,420 mm. The five blade segments fit perfectly to the profile of the road thanks to individual suspension: even at high speeds this leads to a clean clearing result. Thanks to the maintenance-free deviation system with plough blades controlled by steering arms, obstacles in the road can be driven over safely. For transport as well as in clearing position, the left outer blade can be retracted hydraulically, minimising the width of the vehicle when in motion.
The 3,300 mm wide CPS 5.3 is designed for aggressive clearing. The lateral snow plough can also be retracted hydraulically to make negotiating even tight passages easy. When the ML 51-A and CPS 5.3 are combined and completely extended, the clearing vehicle has a clearing width of 6,300 mm.
Also in the branch in Lübeck there is new winter maintenance technology of Schmidt. Since December two identical vehicles are at road maintenance authority in Grande and Sleaford in use and ensure snow and ice-free roads.
We wish always good and safe journey!
