Single axle swap-body trailer Light, manoeuvrable, economic in A, D & H

(PresseBox) ( Triptis, )
For use in Hungary, Austria and Germany BK Transport GmbH from Schwechat near Vienna uses the three new single-axle swap-body trailer from Fliegl. The Hungarian registered chassis is used to transport vehicle parts and vehicle accessories, mainly under contract from Lagermax.

With one axle, even when fitted with a variety of different bodies, the trailers are very agile and easy to manoeuvrer. For standing stability there is a telescopic rear support. Four container locks with stable booms on a 20 foot base (locking distance 5853 mm) allow 7.15 m and 7.45 m long containers to be transported. The frame is lowered by approx. 1180 mm and raised by approx. 1380 mm. The Frame Height in driving position is approx. 1260 mm, the parking height can be varied between 1220 mm and 1320 mm. With an unladen weight of less than 3000 kg the payload capacity is 7000 kg (1000 kg total weight).

The single axle trailers have an optimal road-toll classification in all countries where they operate. They minimize tyre wear, brake wear and rolling resistance – this means lower fuel consumption and lower operating costs.

Other practical details are: a folding longitudinally adjustable guide, two pairs of removable guide rollers in the front and in the rear and two LED working spotlights (up front between the longitudinal beams and at the rear),they can be switched with the rear light.

INNOVATING FOR YOU: Sustainable production, sustainable vehicles

During the manufacturing of trailers and semi-trailers for construction, haulage and logistics, Fliegl is particular about sustainability. In this way a central location can be constructed, produced and monitored; CO2 emissions caused by long distance transport between factories can be reduced. For its modern trailer works in Thuringia Fliegl has a positive energy balance – its electricity production exceeds its own requirement. Fliegl operates a cogeneration power plant and has large-scale photovoltaic plants installed; it is heated by wood chips and waste wood.

Vehicle painting is carried out in a highly efficient, resource-conserving plant, energy-intensive baking processes are not necessary. In order to further reduce energy consumption, Fliegl has invested in pulse-welding machines and fiber laser systems, the hall lighting has also been completely converted to LED. The new high-bay warehouse recirculates expended energy. Also for the purchase of vehicle components Fliegl is particular that full truck loads are accepted, in this way deliveries take place under optimal workload.

Fliegl's vehicle concept is based on a sustainable product philosophy (excerpt). Lightweight construction has high priory, so that top values are achieved by Fliegl for trailer weight – benefiting payload capacity and CO2 emissions. The Fliegl Quick Lock System generates an Aerodynamic advantage for curtain-sided semi-trailers. This is achieved by eliminating protruding buckles, resulting in a completely level surface. Dumper trailers from Fliegl are fitted with an aerodynamic conical trough as standard and constructed with a curved chassis featuring a round neck and an extremely flat frame - the dumper does not extend above the tractor-unit. Air deflectors and the innovative membrane tail gate also reduce wind resistance. Only Fliegl sets the tracking of a trailer individually and precisely by laser - lowering rolling resistance and reducing tyre wear. Ecology and sustainability – Fliegl Trailer takes this seriously.
