Goldhofer At Solutrans 2019



No matter how big, no matter how heavy, no matter where: Heavy-duty trailers from Goldhofer

Goldhofer presents flexible payload champion STZ-VP 8

At this year’s SOLUTRANS 2019 (Lyon/F) Goldhofer will present the STZ-VP 8 with 285 tires designed for extreme heavy transport under the toughest conditions. The robust, powerful and flexible low-bed trailer can be adapted to the most diverse load and route requirements. With a low tare weight and an axle load of up to 16 tons, it offers extraordinary load-bearing capacity for transporting high loads and working machines. This makes loading and unloading just as easy as passing bridges, tunnels or tight bends. This is because they benefit from an extremely flexible and loadable excavator bridge and a deep and continuously wide excavator handle trough. In addition, extremely short set-up times are possible thanks to the fast coupling and uncoupling of the front chassis.

At the Goldhofer exhibition stand (Hall 5, Stand T 215), visitors can take a direct look at Goldhofer’s most powerful low-bed semi-trailer with a payload of around 120 tons. The powerful machine offers the highest payloads in the excavator bed and can be extended to a low-bed bridge by the use of inlay mattresses as well as flexibly adapted to the requirements of any cargo such as construction machinery or assets by the optional use of the front chassis. This enables extremely heavy loads to be transported quickly to their destination over long distances without long detours. “For our customers, the STZ-VP 8 is a universal trailer. It is ideally suited for all transport tasks, especially when it comes to transporting heavy machinery. This ranges from an earth auger weighing 90 tons, which has to be moved on unpaved construction sites, to equally massive cranes or stone crushers, which have to be transported over longer distances. The modular concept of our all-rounder also allows operation in a five- or eight-axle configuration, so that individual transport requirements can be met more quickly,” explains Romuald Espinasse, Sales Manager France at Goldhofer.

Goldhofer model series STZ-VP

Goldhofer’s STZ-VP series low-bed trailers are used by companies wherever demanding cargo has to reach its destination quickly and safely on routes with different terrain and narrowest passages. Thanks to their high axle load, large steering angle and longer loading areas, they are ideally suited for heavy or heaviest loads such as tanks, excavators and other large and bulky pieces of cargo. The trailer series, which can be individually configured to the requirements of almost all loads, together with a wide range of accessories, offers an economical, manoeuvrable and powerful solution even for the heaviest loads.
