Over the years Nooteboom has made a convincing case internationally for their SMART programme of 3-axle and 4-axle semi low-loaders with self-tracking axles. To offer the transport operator extra advantages, Nooteboom now also offers hydraulic steering on all semi low-loaders in the SMART programme, under the name MCOS semi low-loaders.
The art of simplicity
The hydraulic steering system of the MCOS semi low-loaders has been kept as simple as possible while maintaining all the advantages of a Nooteboom steering system. The hydraulically steered axles have a maximum steering angle of 45 degrees, making the trailer extremely manoeuvrable and able to reach places for loading/unloading where access is difficult. The steering system also provides considerable cost-savings because tyre wear is kept to a minimum. And what’s more, the low dead weight offers a very generous load capacity, for transport within the legal weight limits as well as transport with permit.
