February 2015

Nooteboom Trailers sets a new standard with the ballast trailer OVB-95-07 for the transport of crane ballast. The trailer has been improved to meet the requirements as laid down in German legislation. Nooteboom uses sophisticated technology and high-grade steel to keep the dead weight as low as possible. And what’s more, the OVB-95-07 can be combined with either a 6×4 or an 8×4 tractor unit. The result: A high payload and low costs. The table below shows the maximum payload at 80 km/h, depending on the transport combination used :
