MTS DRAWBAR TRAIN
1. ACCURATE STEERING
The front and rear axles are connected by means of a robust and heavy duty mechanical steering mechanism. This mechanism minimises clearances and provides precise steering.
2. TURNING RADIUS
Middle turning radius plus 11m with a trailer length of 40ft. For a basic circle the deviation of the turning cycle of the first and last trailer is approximately 30cm. Deviation depends on curve type, tyres, surface, speed, gradiënt and loading. Assessment of your terminal lay out results in the right configuration.
3. BRAKE SYSTEM WITH ALR
Interprogressive brake system on the rear axle lines. The brake force of each trailer is individually measured and adapted by means of a load-sensing device. The front axle line is provided with this device for weight dependable braking. This unique feauture prevents the wheels from slipping and ensures a longer life time of the tyres.
To connect the trailers a coupling device is mounted at the rear of the trailer. To connect the train with the terminal tractor an automatic coupling can be used. No manual intervention to make this connection is necessary.
5. LOAD CAPACITY UP TO 300T
A trailer train consists of 2 up to 5 trailers (MTS-2 to MTS-5). Every trailer is configured to transport 60t, therfore up to 300t of cargo can be transported with one trailer train.
6. COST EFFICIENT
MTS trailer trains reduce investment in equipment and personnel costs. Costs decrease by 30% and more.
