The Leverink hauling company is a family business going back to 1934. According to their website, they have 75 trucks and tractors, 160 (semi-) trailers and last but not least, 70 truck mounted forklifts.
Several of them were on display last month, like an outstanding, extra long EcoCombi curtainsider for transporting building insulation materials (well that’s not too hard to guess).
The 2018 Volvo FH 6×2 truck is towing a 2018 Krone tridem axle semi-trailer.
The semi-trailer is coupled to a converter dolly which has its own registration and license plate.
A standard-sized straight truck with a standard-sized semi-trailer, that’s what this combination essentially is, thus forming an extra long big rig. It clearly says so on the right sign.
A similar EcoCombi configuration is highlighted and fully described in this article, featuring a Scania 6×2 truck and Burg semi-trailer.
This is how it looks when another 2018 Krone tridem axle semi-trailer is coupled to an ordinary, 19 metric tons (41,888 lbs) 4×2 Euro-tractor.
Although ordinary doesn’t do it justice. What an immaculate, 14-year-old Scania R500 V8!
Aha, that Terberg Kinglifter must be one of Leverink’s 70 truck mounted forklifts. The tridem axle set-up of such a semi-trailer is rated at a total axle load of 27 tons (59,525 lbs).
Some more Swedish pulling power, the two on the left have a V8 (15.6 and 16.4 liter displacement, respectively).

And a next level EcoCombi experiment to boot. Legally not allowed, unsurprisingly, but fun to watch for sure.
