• Goldhofer has launched what is says is the first modular trailer in the world to be fitted with swing axles and air operated disc brakes on 19.5in tyres.
The new system, being distributed in the UK through Andover trailers, is said to give more powerful brakes with less chance of fade and increasx1 reliability. It also benefits from easier and fewer lubrication points, protected brake cylinders and Easier servicing."It's a world first to operate the pendular axle with the 19.5in disc brake controlled directly by compressed air," says Andover sales director Ivan Collins. "Being a 100% air operated system there are no additional interfaces compared with a hydraulic disc brake system because all the functions of the trailer are operated by air."
The first Goldhofer modular trailer with the new technology has been delivered to Fritz %inkier In Kiel, Germany.
