At the Bauma Kögel launched a new three axle- flat bed semi-lowloader. The trailer has a movable king-pin that makes it possible to connect with 2- or 3 axled tractors.
High-strength fine-grained steel and full-width IPE cross beams guarantee extremely stable main frame and external frame. The manually lowerable, air-suspended rear axle assembly ensures enhanced drive-up convenience. The standard bevelled edge at the rear represents a further advantage that leads to a lower loading height and a flat drive-up angle of 10°. For use on building sites where there is a shortage of space, the three-axle flat-bed semi-trailer is also available with an optional articulated self-steering axle.In addition, the high floor is secured all round by 400-millimetre foldable drop sides. Where necessary the drop sides can be removed quickly and easily without the need for tools. The drop sides can be stored in a covered storage box. Especially for the transport of tall wheeled cargoes, 2 x 2 wheel recesses are also available as an option – one pair on the low floor and one pair between the second and third axles – they include covers and an integrated closing mechanism.
Optimal load-securing, even with extra-wide loads
An optional three-metre package equips the flatbed semi-trailer to deal with challenging cargoes requiring extra-wide loads. Also provided are foldable cantilevers and wooden planking on the flatbed and tapered floors, as well as extendible red and white retro-reflective warning panels at front and rear and rotating warning lights. To ensure adequate load securing, five standard pairs of stake pockets are positioned on the flatbed, as well as another five pairs of lashing rings sunk into the bridge floor, with 10,000 kg of tensile force per ring. Recessed into the high floor are two pairs of lashing rings, with 6,000 kg of tensile force per ring, and in the external frame there are three further pairs of lashing rings, with 3,000 kg of tensile strength on each ring.
Lasting corrosion protection
The frame of the 3-axle flat-bed semi-trailer is sand-blasted, primed, and fully painted. The roll-off ramps are hot-dip galvanised. Optionally, the frame of the Kögel 3-axle flat-bed semi-trailer can also be hot-dip galvanised.
