Load Spread Program

For Correct Load Distribution and Less Tyre Wear.

The optional Load Spread Program (LSP) prevents overloading the drive axle after the trailer has been partially unloaded. Depending on the axle load the LSP automatically reduces the pneumatic suspension in the air bellows on the rear trailer axle and thus restores the correct load distribution after partially unloading the trailer.

1. When fully loaded the total load is correctly distributed among the axles on the tractor and the box semitrailer.
2. Partially unloading the trailer moves the vehicle's centre of gravity forwards: The permissible drive axle load on the tractor is exceeded.
3. Lowering the pneumatic suspension pressure on the last axle shortens the effective wheelbase and restores the correct load distribution.
4. LSP is integrated in the trailer EBS as part of the assistance system. The air pressure in the third axle will be controlled automatically as it depends on the
axle load.

Prevents tyre contact with the curb: The LSP increases the inner curve radius travelled with a loaded trailer by up to 10%.
