With the »STEPSTAR« series, Goldhofer has added a new generation of self-tracking semi lowloaders to its extensive range of heavy-duty and special transport solutions. The three- to five-axle semi-trailers offer haulage businesses a proven high standard of quality on attractive terms, and details such as an intelligent load securing system, a practical range of accessories and user-friendly operation – all of which makes the latest »STEPSTAR« series the best choice for everyday haulage operations with maximum axle loads of 12 t and payloads of up to 70 t.

High payload, low deadweight
With its advanced design, the self-tracking »STEPSTAR« semi lowloader comes with an outstanding payload-to-weight ratio. This has been achieved through weight reductions in comparison with comparable vehicles, resulting in a higher payload of 1 t or more. “Construction companies now stand to benefit from significantly more efficient and economical utilization of their fleets,” says Rainer Auerbacher, Head of Transport Technology at Goldhofer AG.

Premium components for low total cost of ownership
For maximum service life, the new semi lowloader is fitted as standard with rugged low-maintenance premium components, including low-maintenance axles and landing gear from BPW as well as tail support legs with convenient foot operation and automatic height adjustment, and an ERMAX full LED lighting system for good vision and high visibility in the dark in bad weather. The high degree of standardization means that spare parts can be obtained quickly and easily, if required.

Safe loads
The intelligent lashing system on the semi lowloader offers almost infinite flexibility for securing loads in compliance with the most rigorous codes. It includes a large number of anchor points and lashing rings, not only on the frame but also in the excavator boom recess and on the gooseneck. In addition to Wader container pockets and drive-over recessed lashing lugs on the tail, the entire deck is also fitted with lashing rings (RUD Optilash Fix 10 t) that retract into the frame. As a special highlight, an optional extra is available in the form of pocket stakes on the gooseneck for form-fit load securing. Another useful accessory is the TraffideckGO deck covering, which combines enhanced load security with reduced lashing requirements.

Flexible and cost-effective working
Designed for flexible transportation to and from construction sites, the extra-long and wide excavator boom recess on the »STEPSTAR« has no cross members and is open to the rear. This makes it possible to carry even bigger excavator booms while simultaneously reducing overall height - a big advantage on routes with height restrictions. “The bottom line here is fewer hassles with permits and more cost-effective working,” says Robert Steinhauser, Director Sales Europe / North Africa. Loading and unloading are equally fast and simple operations as the semi lowloader comes with light and long ramps, which are suitable for almost all self-propelled cargos, with simple adjustment for increasing the width to 2,990 mm or sliding the ramps completely together. The advantages also include a low ramp angle and a ground-friendly lowering mechanism. The ramps, which can be retrofitted as required, also offer fast and easy mounting and removal for fuel savings on the return journey and flexible use within the »STEPSTAR« family.
