Goldhofer Showcases Products at Conexpo
The people at Goldhofer were more than satisfied with the outcome of this year’s Conexpo in Las Vegas. The expectations were more than exceeded with regard to demand for top-quality transportation solutions and value-creating services. Customers were equally impressed, with the Goldhofer P12 PLUS and STZ- P9 being of particular interest. The STZ-VL three-axle lowboy semitrailer with an additional flip axle also attracted keen interest. On the North American market especially, the additional flip axle is a key consideration. It increases the vehicle’s flexibility and payload and enables it to operate across interstate lines with changes in regulations.
The highlight in Las Vegas and an absolute eye-catcher was Goldhofer’s ADDRIVE with the FTV 850 blade carrier. The vehicle combines the advantages of a towed heavy-duty module with those of a self-propelled module. With its enormous tractive force, it supports the tractor unit up to a speed of 31 mph (50 kph). The driven axles are then disengaged automatically and can be re-engaged at lower speeds while driving.
