New low loader from Broshuis
By Christian Shelton15 June 2018
New from Dutch trailer manufacturer Broshuis is the 2-axle PL2 low loader which is designed to provide users with a load capacity of around 36 tonnes.
The PL2 low loader uses a new pendular axle system. Each axle line has a 12 tonne load capacity and a 600 mm stroke. According to the manufacturer, this means the low loader can be jacked up so that it can be used off-road. The minimum ride height is 810 mm.
Broshuis said the new low loader has an extremely low, short axle bogie. This means that the difference in height between the low bed and the axle bogie is much smaller, which makes overhanging cargo above the axle bogie possible, said the manufacturer, thus enabling a shorter vehicle length.
