English term or phrase:wide gage
Demolition machines need the best stability that can be offered. But at the same time they should be easy to transport. To achieve this, the demolition machines are equipped with hydraulic variable gauge undercarriages. In the narrow position the machine can be transported, and in the wide gage the undercarriage will become almost square.
I nostri amici d'oltreoceano scrivono spesso "gage" al posto del più britannico "gauge". Credo che sia la ben nota tendenza a "fonetizzare" la lingua, nella stessa linea, per intenderci, di come trasformano "through" in "thru".
