March 10 - Goldhofer has unveiled the latest addition of its STZ-VP family, the STZ-VP (285), which has the highest load-carrying capacity of Goldhofer's range of low loader semitrailers.

The STZ-VP (285) features pendular axle technology, 285 mm tyres. It is available in configurations between three and ten axles as well as a choice of decks, including vessel bridge, crawler deck and flatbed. The bigger tyres enables a maximum fifth-wheel load of 52 tons (50 tonnes) and the deck profile of just 200 mm for the flatbed is the slimmest on the market, claims Goldhofer.

According to Goldhofer, the pendular axle technology provides optimum distribution of the load to all the tyres as well as levelling on uneven terrain, while the steering angle of up to 65 degrees provides high levels of manoeuvrability.

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.
