Kögel unveils next-gen Mega Trailer

Koegel Mega
With up to 170 kg of additional payload compared to the previous generation, the basic version of the Kögel Mega tips the scales at a tare weight starting at around 6,130 kg. It is designed for conventional standard tasks as well as for high-volume transport use. With a clear internal height of 3m, it is the ideal trailer for just-in-time business in the automotive sector. Loading and unloading stacked pallet cages is simple due to the standard mechanical/hydraulic lifting roof. This increases the lateral loading height at the front by 600mm and at the rear by 500mm to over 3m.

In addition to the well-known advantages of the NOVUM generation — such as the new air and lighting console on the front wall, which transfers the forces into the frame via the side members — the new external frame profile, which greatly increases the accessibility of the VarioFix lashing points, and the variable lattice pockets — the Kögel Mega has extensive standard equipment. The 13 pairs of lashing shackles, included as standard, are now available with grip hooks at the sides for easier handling, and have a tensile force of 2,500 kg. Naturally, the Kögel Mega has the EN 12642 Code XL load-securing certificate.

The IAA 2018 exhibit on display is optionally equipped in accordance with Daimler Guideline 9.5. This includes steel pallet limiting rails and a double front-wall bulkhead made from a 12mm thick and 1,250mm high textured coated board. The exhibit also shows the new Kögel Strong & Go body. This consists of the innovative NOVUM generation body combined with a Kögel integral roof tarpaulin reinforced with stiffening belts. With this cost-effective solution, lattices are no longer required to comply with EN 12642 Code XL and Daimler Guideline 9.5 for the transport of pallet cages and strapped loads. Nevertheless, Daimler Guideline 9.5 stipulates that small-sized carriers must be fitted with lattices. Additional Kögel Mega novelties include the Kögel LUXIMA multi-chamber combination tail lights and a pallet storage box for 24 Euro pallets. Due to the optimised height of the box, a ground clearance of 100mm is now possible. To improve road safety and prevent turning accidents, this lightweight trailer is equipped with optional flashing side marker lights.

A modular system means that the trademark variable body from the Kögel FlexiUse can also be used for the NOVUM generation Mega. The body includes eight front settings, each adjustable by 25mm, and four rear settings, each adjustable by 50mm, so the body heights can be independently adjusted by 200mm at the front and rear. This allows everyday goods transport with a clear internal height of 2,850–3,050mm at the front and rear. Kögel Mega can also be ordered with two 10-ton axles. The 1,810 mm-long centre distance ensures very quiet running. This version also has an even lower tare weight, lower operating and fuel costs. A wide variety of customised equipment is also available, and includes various load-securing packages, RoRo equipment, platform gates, double rail codification, a coil trough etc. The entire vehicle frame is given long-lasting protection from corrosion by nano ceramic and cathodic dip-paint coating, followed by a UV coating.
