German trailer brand Kässbohrer has launched a new extendable low-loader range specially designed for the heavy-duty transportation market.
Presented at Kässbohrer’s head office in Goch, Germany, the hydraulically steered K.SLH and K.SLL models are seen as a milestone achievement on the way to grow the brand internationally. Until 2018, the 120-year-old company is aiming at producing some 20,000 units per annum.
According to Kässbohrer Executive Board member, İffet Türken, the brand has tripled its production over the past three years to become the forth-biggest trailer manufacturer in Europe.
The new range includes the K.SLH 6, an extendable six-axle low bed that can carry up to 106 tonnes in total. Equipped with a hydraulic steering system and wireless remote control, the K.SLH was designed with maximum manoeuvrability in mind, according to Kässbohrer. It can provide a gooseneck capacity of 34 tonnes and can be extended to a length of up to 15.2m.
The second new model is a three-axle low loader dubbed K.SLL 3. With a ground clearance of 400 mm, it was built to ensure the safe transport of heavy freight up with a height of up to 3.6m.
“Engineered with a bolted gooseneck, the K.SLL 3 shortens loading operations of bulky goods, while enhancing safety with front loading options,” Kässbohrer said. The K.SLL 3 is extendable up to 5.2m.
