German low loader specialist, Goldhofer, is currently presenting its new MPA Troika axle in the UK. The new axle design, developed to optimise vehicle handling and manoeuvrability, is fitted to the company’s STZ-MPA low-loader, which is touring the country in May.
“Thanks to a suspension stroke of 315mm, plus an individual choice of ride height and a steering angle, the new axle is transforming traditional trailer technology, ensuring easier driving and increased flexibility,” Goldhofer said.
The axle comprises just one wheel carrier, one strut and one suspension arm. “The stripped-back design creates outstanding durability and low kerb weights, as well as easy maintenance, whilst the independent response of the axles allows the trailer to handle uneven surfaces with ease.”
Ivan Collins, Sales Director of Andover Trailers, Goldhofer’s sole distributor in the UK and Ireland, commented, “This latest innovation is a really exciting development and we are delighted to be able to offer Andover Trailers’ customers the new technology through our partnership with Goldhofer.
“The roadshows give us the opportunity to demonstrate to customers how the technology works first-hand and answer any questions they may have on the new product. We’re looking forward to seeing what the UK’s response is to this fantastic innovation.”
