Increasing use of digital and electronic components.

There is a pronounced increase in use of digital and electronic components to support vehicle handling in terms of operation and maintenance for higher levels of safety and reliability.

Electronic systems for the simplified operation of various functions are already to be found in many Goldhofer vehicles, and that naturally applies to the ARCUS« PK, too. With SmartControl, Goldhofer has developed a mature operating system that also has an integrated diagnostics function. The operator can use the remote control as well as the control panels on the gooseneck and bogie. ARCUS« PK sets yet another benchmark in the international heavy haulage industry worldwide.

ARCUS« PK’s new patent-pending steering system combines friction steered and forced-steered pendular axles, simplified handling of the front bogie, which can be quickly loaded onto the rear deck as an economical solution for empty running. The ARCUS« PK is one of the lightest vehicles in its class and comes with a very low loading height of 790mm, so that it can handle high cargos weighing up to 130 tons and more. And with the user-friendly SmartControl, all vehicle functions can be operated by the driver with maximum convenience. All of which puts Goldhofer (the world market leader for heavy haulage and specialized transport solutions) on track to establish the ARCUS« PK as yet another benchmark in the international heavy haulage industry worldwide.

"Together with bauma, IAA Commercial Vehicles is doubtless the most important industry event in the German-speaking world. The traditional focus is on road transport, and with our vehicles we have again been able to present efficient solutions in a hands-on situation."

The "Allrounder" makes light work of high payloads and is a nimble construction site workhorse.

Goldhofer

The vehicle owes its name to its impressive versatility. In addition, with its compact vehicle design and low deadweight, the ‘Allrounder’ makes light work of high payloads. It is a nimble construction site workhorse with wheel and excavator recesses for fast loading of a wide range of construction site vehicles. A mature lashing system offers users a variety of options for the safe transportation of all cargoes. It also comes with a load-sensing lift axle for economical running, and has an electronic ramp lock for fully automatic one-man operation at the press of a button, which means savings in set-up time and personnel requirements.

With its extensive load securing possibilities, the excavator can be fastened tightly to the loading platform. An Allrounder for complete construction site logistics.
