ES44ACi frame on the road (Brazil)
Author: pedrop

Today morning I found a big truck with an ES44ACi frame being moved from the builder MecBrun to Wabtech, that will be used to assembly more ES44's to Rumo.

1 - 2) The truck on MG-424 road;

3) The video.

That's all for today.

Thanks Pedro.  Looks like the truck had trouble climbing the grade in your earlier images.  Where was the DPU? - LOL

I do not know the price of these frames, but I can ask I friend that worked there with the builder. In the past, the parts came from US and Mexico. Nowadays, more than 80% of the parts are made here in Brazil.

Hi Brian,
I visited the frame builder today. The ES44 frame weights 46 tons, including the 10 tons of steel ballast. The ES43BBi frame also weights 46 tons, but has only 1.8 tons of steel ballast since is a much bigger frame. The frame the BBi measures 23 meters long. The frames costs about R$1.8 milion reais, what means US$ 360,000.00.
