DOLL’s New Eight-Axle Trailer Goes on its Maiden Voyage
Company Bauer (Schrobenhausen, Germany) inaugurated its new eight-axle panther semi low-loader on the route from Berlin to Munich.
Yet in 2011, Bauer Spezialtiefbau GmbH ordered a six-axle trailer with the newly launched panther technology. Now the choice for its new trailer fell again on the proven single-wheel suspension developed by DOLL.
The first drive of the eight-axle semi low-loader from Berlin to Munich was the transportation of a drilling unit weighing 80t. By purchasing this trailer the company wants to carry especially heavy and bulky loads such as constructional equipment.
The vehicle of type S8E-S2 can be extended from the first axle and is equipped with a 25t compensating gooseneck, double ramps and 12t axles like all panther trailers.
Driver Steve was overwhelmed by the very low-loading height and the newly developed control system, DOLLtronic, which is based on CAN-bus.
The possibility to control all functions from one central station makes handling much easier.
DOLL wishes company Bauer many more pleasant drives.
