Larger tyres, choice of decks and high manoeuvrability among main features of heavy trailer
German heavy moving specialist Goldhofer has introduced the STZ-VP (285), the latest addition to its STZ-VP family of semitrailers. The new model owes its name to the new 285mm tyres and is the lowloader semitrailer with the highest load-carrying capacity from the house of Goldhofer.
Announcing the new product, a statement from Goldhofer said the model uses its proven pendular axle technology and is available in configurations with between three and 10 axles, and a choice of decks, namely vessel bridge, crawler deck and flatbed. The axle load is a technically permissible 16t and a deck profile of just 200mm for the flatbed is claimed to be the slimmest on the market. Manoeuvrability is aided with a steering angle of up to 65 degrees.
In order to keep maintenance costs to a minimum, axle suspension is available with a choice of tapered roller or compact bearings, to meet customers’ individual requirements in terms of mileage and maintenance intervals, the statement added.
With the STZ-VP (285), Goldhofer says that now its STZ family has a version that can handle much heavier loads thanks to the bigger tyres and a maximum fifth-wheel load of 52t.
The optimised excavator recess brings a reduction in overall load height, while the matching components ensure safe working with maximum payloads, Goldhofer claims.
Other features of the model include the long service life of the big 285mm tyres. In addition, the company’s global service network offers fast response and worldwide support with availability of original parts, said the statement.
