More payload for the Kögel tipper trailer: clever material mix makes it possible
20 September 2018
New: Now with aluminium side walls and back wall
Up to 430 kilograms more payload
The Kögel IAA highlight for the construction industry is the Kögel tipper trailer with even more payload. This is made possible by a modular expansion with aluminium side walls and back wall. The 2-axle and 3-axle tipper trailers with 24 m³ loading volume are available not only with various wall and tailgate thicknesses in steel; the side walls and tailgate are now also available in aluminium. Thanks to intelligent joining technology, Kögel customers can compile an individual tipper trailer with different wall and floor thicknesses and materials, depending on their industry and requirements, and the intended purpose.
More payload with new drop side and back wall variants
The 3-axle tipper trailer with 24 m³ loading volume exhibited at the IAA 2018 will display the variant with a four-millimetre-thick floor, made of tempered Hardox 450 steel, side walls made of a highly wear-resistant, five-millimetre-thick aluminium sheet, as well as a back wall made of a highly wear-resistant, seven-millimetre-thick aluminium sheet. This combination is ideal for construction materials like crushed rock or gravel.
The benefit of a steel tub with light drop sides and back wall over a tipper body made of pure aluminium is that there is no need for the cost-intensive repair of the floor every two to three years due to wear. This mix of materials is a clever choice by Kögel. At places subject to a high level of wear and tear, high-quality steel is used, and on the side walls and back wall subject to less abrasion, lighter aluminium is used. Compared to a Kögel tipper trailer with four-millimetre-thick steel side walls and a five-millimetre-thick steel back wall, the new aluminium drop sides and back wall enable a saving of up to 430 kilograms in tare weight.
Individual equipment on the trade show exhibit
The IAA 2018 trade show exhibit features special equipment, such as a toolbox, a control pedestal, a roll-up cover, a lift axle, aluminium wheel rims, aluminium air tanks and flashing side marker lights to increase traffic safety and prevent accidents when turning, and much more.
Cathodic dip-paint coating: lasting protection from corrosion
Nano ceramic technology and cathodic dip-paint coating together with a coat of UV varnish provide the entire frame and tipper body of the Kögel tipper trailers with long-term corrosion protection.
