Nooteboom’s new semi low-loader boasts a range of refinements

Nooteboom has launched a new multifunctional three-axle hydraulically steered semi low-loader aimed at the rental and construction industry.

The trailer has 40 TUV-certified lashing provisions fitted in the load surface – spread out over four widths – so loads can be secured in virtually any position. For optimal grip, the hydraulic folding ramps, the load surface and the hydraulic height-adjustable floor are equipped with a serrated and hot-dip galvanised steel grid.

The trailer is also fitted with a powerful Superwinch electric winch with radio remote control for safer loading and unloading.

Nooteboom said it developed the trailer to be lightweight to offer customers the best possible payload.

The hydraulically steered axles with a maximum steering angle of 45 degrees ensure the trailer offers a high degree of manoeuvrability, which will be of help when loading and unloading in places where access is difficult.

The steering system has also been tweaked to greatly reduce tyre wear.

Nooteboom has treated the chassis to corundum blasting, metal spraying, and dual layers of primer and spray paint to provide lasting protection against corrosion.

Many components are have been hot-dip galvanised or made of stainless steel for added durability.

The manufacturer said the trailer is also available in a version for carrying road construction machinery, plus a version for shifting bulldozers. These are offered with multiple axles and extendible load floor.

These models see the steel grid on the load surface and ramps replaced with a hardwood floor. Load surface width extension is available as an option, and a range of hydraulic ramps and aluminium hook-on ramps for driving the load onto the load floor are also on offer.
