Transporting agricultural equipment: the importance of adaptability and expertise

The transport of agricultural equipment requires solid expertise and adaptability. Drivers must be trained to load and unload. Transport might be carried out on a farm, but also during trade fairs and exhibitions where access might be an issue.

With this in mind, Capelle offers those in the agricultural sector conventional and abnormal load transport services to meet their requirements and representatives who are fully aware of the challenges in this sector.

Agricultural machinery, more than just abnormal load transport

Capelle's production units allow us to take on all types of transport, from a simple load right up to the transport of equipment such as apple harvesters which can measure up to 5 metres high and 4 metres wide.

We have the capacity to transport every type of agricultural equipment: tractors, harvesters, forage harvesters, vats, tanks, various types of gear, self-propelled vehicles and dredgers for beets, seed drills, vine harvesters, and more.

Capelle Transports can also look after various types of forestry equipment such as skidders, fellers, forwarders, brushcutters and rail-road machines, all requiring expertise in abnormal load transport due to their non-standard dimensions.

We have permanent authorisation for category 1 and 2 transport, and can also gain category 3 authorisation in abnormal load transport to operate throughout Europe.
