Goldhofer adds Stepstar range 

Goldhofer has introduced the Stepstar range of semi low-loader trailers.

The three- to five-axle semi-trailers can handle payloads up to 70 tonnes. 

“With the Stepstar, haulage and construction companies now stand to benefit from significantly more efficient and economical utilisation of their fleets,” said Rainer Auerbacher, head of transport technology at Goldhofer

The trailer is equipped with a large number of anchor points and lashing rings, and is fitted with low-maintenance, standardise components. This, according to Goldhofer, means that spare parts can be obtained quickly and easily, if required. 

The manufacturer added: “The extra long and wide excavator boom recess on the Stepstar has no cross members and is open to the rear. This makes it possible to carry even bigger excavator booms while simultaneously reducing overall height – a big advantage on routes with height restrictions.”
