Our range of auctioned trailers is dedicated to professionals in the transport sector. Robust and reliable, these trucks perfectly meet their needs in terms of safety.
The semi-trailer is the rear part that makes up an articulated vehicle. It can transport large volumes of goods. To be ready for driving, it must be connected to a road tractor by means of a fifth wheel. With no engine, its front part rests on vertical axles resting on the ground. Robust and straight, these crutches support the weight of the load. Hooking and uncoupling can be controlled hydraulically. When the machine is released from the tractor, it remains in balance. To fulfil its role as a rolling vehicle, the rear is fitted with tires.
Our second-hand semi-trailers comply with the regulations in force. The gross vehicle weight rating or GVWR is governed by R312-4. A semi-trailer with 4 axles or less has a maximum GVWR of 38 tonnes. The 5 axle model is 40 tons. Vehicles with more than 5 axles can support a load of up to 44 tonnes. The dimensions of these trucks vary according to the brand and use, but are always in compliance with standards. As an indication, a standard semi-trailer for the transport of goods measures 13.60m in length, 2.40m in width and 2.60m in height for a payload of 25,000kg.
