German OEM Kögel has presented a container chassis with pneumatic rear extension, the Port 40 Simplex at the recent IAA Commercial Vehicles Show in Hanover, Germany.
The container chassis, weighing 5,200kg in its basic form, with a technical gross tare weight of 41,000kg and a fifth-wheel load of 14,000kg, is reportedly ideal for transporting 20, 30 and 40 foot ISO containers, as well as 40 foot Highcube containers.
According to Kögel, the Port 40 Simplex rear extension feature is easy to use, with pneumatic pressure produced at the press of a button. With the rear extension enacted, a 40-foot Highcube container or two 20-foot ISO containers can be accommodated.
Nano Ceramic Technology and cathodic dip-paint coating, supplemented with UV painting, protect the entire vehicle frame of the Kögel Port 40 Simplex from corrosion, Kögel revealed.
