May 18 - Collett Transport has purchased a three-axle hydraulic steering bogie from German trailer manufacturer Doll Fahrzeugbau, which has a 55-degree steering angle and a carrying capacity of over 60 tonnes.

This is the first time in ten years that a three-axle Doll bogie trailer has entered the UK market, claims Collett.

Collett says that the new trailer is ideal for long cargoes, such as steel bridge beams, since using a bogie trailer offers several benefits, including increased ground clearance, extra stability and excellent manoeuvrability.

The new Doll bogie has already been put to use in the UK, transporting 14 steel beams, each measuring 40 m long and weighing 50 tonnes, from Northallerton to Chester via Middlesbrough.
