Goldhofer: Setting new Benchmarks in Innovation at Upcoming CONEXPO-CON/AGG

At CONEXPO-CON/AGG Goldhofer will be presenting no fewer than four highlights for the American market at its outdoor stand D2239. A STZ-VL4 (3+1) lowboy trailer with flip axle and deck inserts, the »P12 PLUS« highway trailer recently introduced specifically for the US market, and an »ADDRIVE« 2.0 combined with the FTV 850, the global leading wind turbine blade carrier built by Goldhofer.

Time is the key in the grueling everyday world of road transportation. In this context, Goldhofer’s STZ-VL double drop semitrailers are a convincing choice in all respects. They are designed for fast and easy front-end loading and, in spite of their low deadweight, will reliably handle very high payloads. An additional pin-on flip axle brings greater flexibility and payload as well as the adaptability to operate across state lines with differences in heavy haul regulations.

The ultimate in flexibility for a wide range of transportation operations – that is the new »P12 PLUS« highway trailer. It offers decisive advantages for successful operations with a modern fleet. The vehicle can be adapted to handle the various loads that go with everyday heavy haul operations and thus ensures optimum fleet capacity utilization. In the 12-axle version, the »P12 PLUS« offers a maximum payload of up to 281,000 lbs (127 t), with a 26,400 lbs (12 t) axle load. It also has the flexibility to be operated in a 9- or 6-axle version. The vehicle’s universal character is underscored by an extensive range of accessories including loading decks and turntables for transporting long and heavy loads using the steerable dolly. “A wide range of jobs with just one vehicle – Goldhofer’s »P12 PLUS« represents our wealth of experience with the successful THP series transferred to the highway transportation market. Thanks to its variability, heavy haul companies can now ensure punctual delivery of diverse special and everyday loads across state lines with just one vehicle,” says Jerry Rothwell, Director of Sales - North America.

Latest generation »ADDRIVE«
The »ADDRIVE« 2.0 is an intelligent solution that combines the advantages of a towed heavy-duty module with those of a self-propelled module. With its enormous driving force, it can support the tractor up to a speed of 31 mph (50 km/h). The drive unit then disconnects automatically and can be reconnected at lower speeds without stopping. With the »ADDRIVE« 2.0 it is possible to switch from the supporting function for road transportation to off-road operation as a self-propelled vehicle. This means savings in terms of time and costs, and greater efficiency and flexibility for every fleet.

“With its various travel modes, it can be towed, used to deliver additional power to the tractor unit on the road and also operated independently as a hydrostatically powered self-propelled transporter,” says Jerry Rothwell and he adds: “In countless combinations worldwide, more than 60 units are providing outstanding service for our customers, enabling transports that would otherwise have been much more complicated at a higher cost to complete.”

The FTV 850 blade carrier
The FTV 850 is designed for maximum safety and stability for wind turbine transports.

Goldhofer has been a pioneer in the field of wind turbine blade carriers since 2013.

An incredible success story that continues to this day began with the FTV 300. Today more than 60 units in different versions are in successful operation around the world, helping to make power generation increasingly sustainable. Thanks to an intelligent design concept that makes light work of difficult routes and minimizes the need to make changes to the roadside infrastructure. As a result, narrow passages in built-up areas, forests and winding roads present no problems to this maneuverable combination. The largest blade carrier to date can be used not only in the basic width of 9.8 ft (3 m) but also in split combinations with a width of up to over 13.1 ft (4 m). Depending on the configuration, the latest generation of wind turbine blades requiring a load moment of up to 1,870,000 lbs (850 mt) can be picked up and transported on a highly flexible basis.

The Goldhofer team is looking forward to presenting these vehicles live to customers and interested parties at the CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 in Las Vegas.
