Goldhofer at Solutrans 2019 in November

At this year’s SOLUTRANS 2019 (Lyon/F) Goldhofer will be presenting a vehicle specially designed for extreme heavy road transport under the most demanding conditions: the STZ-VP 8 with 285 tires. The robust high-performance low- loader trailer offers the flexibility to handle a wide variety of cargos and routes. With a maximum axle load of 16 tons, it offers exceptional carrying capacity for high loads and working machines plus advantages in all operating situations, from loading and unloading to negotiating bridges, tunnels and tight bends. The benefits include an extremely strong and flexible crawler deck and a rear bogie with a deep continuous excavator boom recess. In addition, fast coupling and uncoupling of the front bogie means extremely short setup times.



At the Goldhofer Solutrans stand (T 215 in hall 5), visitors will be able to inspect Goldhofer’s impressive low-loader semitrailer for max. payload of approx 120 tons. The muscular STZ-VP 8 is designed to handle the highest possible payloads on the crawler deck, which can be extended with drop-in sections for the drop deck. Together with the optional use of the front bogie, that guarantees the flexibility needed to cope with an extremely wide range of cargos, construction machines such as industrial loads. The result is a vehicle that is ideal for transporting ultra-heavy loads over long distances without having to make long detours. “For our customers, the STZ-VP 8 is a universal solution. It is ideally suited for all transport operations, especially when it comes to transporting heavy machinery – like a 90-ton hydraulic drilling rig to be moved on rough construction site terrain or cranes in the same weight class or heavy crushers to be transported over long distances. The modular concept of our all-rounder also permits the choice between five- or eight-axle configuration, so that individual job specifications can be met more quickly,” explains Romuald Espinasse, Sales Manager France at Goldhofer.



The Goldhofer drop-deck semitrailers in the STZ-VP series are the vehicles of choice where challenging cargos need to be delivered quickly and safely on routes with varying terrain and narrow passages. Thanks to the high axle load, large steering angle and longer deck area, they are ideal for heavy and ultra-heavy haulage of boilers, excavators and other outsize loads. In combination with an extensive range of accessories, this semitrailer series, which can be configured individually to handle almost any cargo, is a cost-effective, maneuverable, high-performance solution for even the heaviest loads.
