“After such a long period with no major trade shows, we are very much looking forward to once again presenting our transport solutions face-to-face and holding interesting discussions”, says Robert Steinhauser, Sales Manager Europe / North Africa at Goldhofer.

The new self-tracking semi lowloaders in the “STEPSTAR” series offer top quality engineering, high payloads combined with a low dead weight, and an innovative load securing system. An intelligent loading area design and the “MEGA” loadable gooseneck are the key to optimum utilization of the overall vehicle length.

“The “STEPSTAR” is the perfect response to our customers’ expectations: top quality plus intelligent details at a competitive price. Many customers particularly appreciate the fact that the 3-axle versions can be used for permit-free transport operations throughout Europe with payloads of up to 26.3 t and a gross combination length of 16.5 m,” says Robert Steinhauser

Goldhofer’s tried and tested “ADDrive” is an equally uncompromisingly application-focussed solution. It combines the advantages of a towed and a self-propelled heavy-duty module.

Such flexibility avoids the need to transfer the cargo from a road transport vehicle to one or more self-propelled transporters, which may be necessary more than once on certain routes.


With the help of “ADDRONIC”, a new synchronization software specially developed by Goldhofer, “ADDRIVE” can also be operated in combination with other self-propelled transporters and modules.

Flexibility is also the name of the game with regard to the combination options. At the trade show, for example, Goldhofer will be presenting a 280 hp “ADDRIVE” that offers enormous power in the combination of hydraulic and three driven axle lines. Also, thanks to its multi-combination coupling it can be combined with most Goldhofer heavy duty modules that are common in Europe and can naturally be used with various dropdecks and long-load turntables. The result is the ultimate in flexibility – for every operator’s fleet.

Goldhofer will be exhibiting at GIS 2021 on their outdoor stand H16 at the Piacenza Expo, Italy during 7 to 9 October.
