Nooteboom expand SMART programme
Manufacturer introduces new OSDS 48-03V(EBW) extendible lightweight semi-low-loader with wheel wells
NOOTEBOOM have expanded their SMART programme with the introduction of the new OSDS-48-03V(EBW) extendible lightweight semi-low-loader with wheel wells. The three-axle unit with self-tracking axle can carry a payload of up to 39 tonnes at up to 80km/h.
Moreover, with 4,750mm extendable loading floor, a very low deadweight of only 8,700kg has been achieved, whilst the short axle distance between the first and second axle of just 2,260mm contributes to optimal manoeuvrability.
Thanks to the deep wheel wells, larger types of wheel loaders and articulated dumptrucks can now be transported with this semi-low-loader, whereas previously this was only possible with a low-loader. In addition, the OSDS-48-03V(EBW) can also transport divisible loads, containers and tracked construction machines.
The OSDS-48-03V(EBW), which is said to be exceptionally strong with excellent torsional stiffness, utilizes only top-quality A-brand components, such as Jost landing legs, SAF axles, Hella lighting, Goodyear tyres and a Wabco braking system.
The semi-low-loader includes sliding outrigger consoles in the loading area as standard, whilst available options include a lift axle, removable intermediate tables, a toolbox on the gooseneck, ferry rings, aluminum boards, ramps, storage trays and toolboxes under the loading floor.
The asymmetric shape of the 400mm deep wheel wells with an inclination angle of 35° make it easier to unload wheel loaders by facilitating exit from a standstill. In addition, the easy-access wheel wells are equipped with steel cross ribs that provide maximum grip when driving in and out.
The position of the wheel wells also provides optimal weight distribution between the gooseneck and the axle bogie. The wheel well dimensions are suitable for all common brands and types of wheel loader with different tyre diameters, axle distances and weights, including the Cat 980K, Doosan DL500, Liebherr L586, Volvo L220G, Hitachi ZW370 or Komatsu A500-6.
The front wheel well is created by extending the loading floor. Using the optional sliding bolster with chamfered edges, the required space can be adapted to the tyre size and wheelbase of the wheel loader or dumptruck to be transported.
The long 1,150mm rear beaver with high ground clearance makes loading and unloading machines extremely easy. For maximum grip, the loading floor is fitted with hardwood wherever possible, and the customer has a wide choice of ramps, ranging from 2.4m long aluminum ramps to automatic hydraulically folding 5m ramps.
For extra-wide machines, the hydraulic ramps and the standard sliding outrigger consoles can be extended to more than 3m, whilst the aluminum ramps can be hooked up to a width of more than 3m. Smaller machines can also be driven on to the gooseneck using special hook-on ramps.
The semi-low-loader is not limited to the transport of wheel loaders and dumpers, but can also carry divisible loads, containers and tracked construction machines. If necessary, the wheel wells can easily be closed, creating a completely flat loading floor. For this purpose, removable galvanized supports with integrated sliding width enlargers and hardwood floorboards are available. As an option, the wheel wells can also be completely filled with hardwood parts.
The semi-low-loader is equipped as standard with three pairs of holes for intermediate locks for transporting 20ft, 30ft and 40ft containers. To secure the load, various TÜV-certified lashing eyes are provided, allowing the load to be optimally secured in all directions. The gooseneck, for instance, is equipped with 5,000daN TÜV lashing eyes, whilst the load floor has no fewer than 22 individual 8,000 daN TÜV lashing eyes spread over the side raves and centre beam of the trailer.
In addition to the lashing eyes, lashing holes have been provided in the side raves for the attachment of lashing straps. Furthermore, the semi-trailer has optional all-round rope hooks under the side raves. As an option, these can be further enhanced with extra-strong 13,400daN TÜV-certified lashing rings at the front and rear of the loading surface. Thus, every conceivable load can be optimally secured to the highest safety standards on the OSDS-48-03V(EBW).
