Broshuis Ultra-light 3-axle Platform Trailer Debut with Finnie Heavy Haulage

Following the recent delivery of another Broshuis 4-axle triple extending flat trailer, Finnie Heavy Haulage are once again leading the way with the delivery of the very first lightweight flat, a full specification ultra-light 3-axle platform trailer, single extendible with fully hydraulic steering and a solid heavy duty floor. This is the first order for the trailer in the UK and Europe

Broshuis have been able to achieve the weight requirements not by simply reducing the strength or by reducing the functionality of the trailer but because of the most modern computer technologies, 3D-CAD models and FEM-analysis. This allows them to analyze and determine where weight can be saved without compromising on the strength and quality. Clever use of lightweight axles resulted in a weight reduction of 3 tons, compared with a standard, twin-tyre, trailer. An optimized solution, especially when driving to the limits of the road vehicle, construction and use, regulations.

This is not the first scoop for Finnie Haulage, following others with their SL-AIR, SL 100-tonner, the SL2 and PL2 low loader, demonstrating their innovative partnership with Broshuis.
