Goldhofer: Moving Big Things

Present formula for heavy haulage made easy
Visitors to Conexpo, the largest construction trade show on the American continent, will find a whole range of solutions at the Goldhofer outdoor stand (F7310A) for transporting oversized and ultra-heavy loads more easily, more flexibly, and, above all, more economically. With the PST/SL-E 6 heavy-duty module, the STZ-P 9 semi-lowloader and the STZ-VL 3+1 low-loader semitrailer, the market leader will be presenting three trade show highlights that guarantee reliable delivery of the most challenging construction machinery and components. “Visitors to our stand will also be provided with all the information they need on North American-compliant vehicles, such as our THP/DC dual-lane modular trailer,” says Stefan Kohler, Vice President Sales of Goldhofer Inc.

Goldhofer PST/SL-E: flexible drive, powerful performance
For today’s increasingly heavy, voluminous and higher cargos, Goldhofer’s heavy-duty modules are always the right choice – even on challenging terrains. The electronic multiway steering makes the self-propelled PST/SL-E extremely flexible and maneuverable – ideal for picking up and setting down the heaviest loads with pinpoint precision. Whether towed (THP), self-propelled (PST), or a combination of the two (ADDRIVE), Goldhofer’s wide range of heavy-duty modules offer the right transport solution for every job – due to the advantages of low deadweight, low-profile decks, and a high bending moment. The ADDRIVE, for example, combines the advantages of a towed vehicle with those of a self-propelled heavy-duty module. This avoids the need to transfer the cargo from a road transport vehicle to one or more self-propelled vehicles, which may be necessary several times on certain routes – for example, when crossing bridges with low load limits or on twisting roads with narrow bends.

STZ-P 9 highway semitrailer: champion in the 110-ton class
The STZ-P 9 highway semitrailer is specifically designed to meet the requirements of the North American road haulage industry. With its 3x3 pendular axle bogies, the STZ-P 9 has a loading length of more than 27.5m (approx. 90 ft) and still offers impressive maneuverability. This is due to the semitrailer’s hydromechanical forced steering and robust pendulum axle technology, which provide for a steering angle of up to 60 degrees and a maximum axle stroke of 600 millimeters (23.6 inches). The STZ-P 9 can thus handle narrow roads with tight bends as well as uneven and potholed road surfaces. As the rear bogie can be retracted under load, it is possible to reduce the length of the vehicle as the situation requires and then use a tractor to re-extend it. This makes it possible to negotiate obstacles and tight bends, especially in city center locations. The hydraulic axle compensation of the STZ-P 9 makes for easy loading and unloading with a wide range of cargos, with or without the use of a crane. Also, axle spacing between the bogies can be adjusted for operations in locations where different approval regulations apply.

STZ-VL 3+1 lowloader semitrailer: for standard and exceptional cargos
In the grueling everyday world of road transport, time is of the essence. In this context, Goldhofer’s STZ-VL lowloader 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. Due to the reduced difference in height between deck and bogie, for example, cargos with a small angle of approach can also be transported. With a suspension stroke of 270 mm and a steering angle of 45 degrees, the STZ-VL has the maneuverability to cope with any situation on the road. A flip axle can be added for extra versatility and it also provides the flexibility to handle jobs on routes that cross state lines with changes in regulations. In short, with their high axle load, low deadweight, huge steering angle and longer decks, the STZ-VL 3 is ideally suited for carrying heavy loads such as excavators and other heavy items.
