The S.KI LIGHT tipper semi-trailer impresses with its larger volume and unchanged system length, thus offering a better payload/volume ratio for
loads with a low bulk density. With the shorter system length of 8.2 m, the trailer has the same loading volume as the longer previous versions, but offers improved manoeuvrability. A lower unladen weight and a 160-mm reduction in side loading height can be achieved with an unchanged fifth wheel height and the same body volume. This makes side loading even easier and helps to protect against damage. This practical solution offers a wider scope for application and increases the potential payload. Thanks to the lower loading edge, loading and unloading pallets through the rear wall is also easier than even before.
The reduced overall height also means that the trailer’s centre of gravity was able to be lowered. This increases the driving stability, and provides for better road holding when cornering, while also improving stability during the tipping process. It also ensures safe passage through hall and barn doors and safe driving under silo loading stations.
The stepframe model of the S.KI LIGHT AK tipper semi-trailer is available with a body measuring 45 to 59 m3. The chassis frame features an 80-mm offset in the front area at the
height of the landing gear. The tapered chassis design and special contour under the body enables the chassis to be recessed into the body floor at the front. High-volume bodies with the popular, straight chassis frame will remain on the market.
