Trailer remote control

Belgium-based earthworks, demolition and transportation company Wonico has started using a trailer remote control system from Dutch trailer manufacturer Broshuis designed to increase safety and convenience.

The remote control enables drivers to remain at a safe distance whilst being able to: operate the ramps; lift and lower the trailer (on SL and PL hydraulic suspension lines); operate the hydraulic gooseneck; raise and lower the lift bed in the loading floor; operate the winch; operate hydraulic support legs; and adjust the trailer and align it automatically.

According to driver Lars Kloeck, “You only experience the enormous difference when you start using the remote control. I am now safely operating the ramps remotely. Previously I was almost half under the trailer. This is a result. In fact, every driver should have this.”
