When vegetables are harvested or planted, they are primarily put in boxes. At Agritechnica, Kröger is presenting a newly developed platform trailer for this type of transport for the first time. This special body has been developed in close association with an experienced vegetable farmer and is optimally designed for quick loading and secure transport of vegetables and/or seed vegetable boxes.
This special vehicle has been based on a two-axle standard chassis from the PWO range. The front wall and rear wall are made of a steel frame construction with aluminium board wall profiles. The front wall also has a double-leaf access door as well as removable locking bars to secure the load vertically. An LED light strip in the roof construction allows the loading bay to be lit up. The roof tarpaulin protects the interior from rain and sunshine. The two-part side gates are hydraulically opened upwards and are parked on the roof when opened. A guide rail ensures that the gates open and close safely and securely. A combination of gearwheels and chains is used to control the divided side gates with double-acting hydraulic cylinders. By switching a valve on the drawbar, you can preselect whether the left, right, or both sides are to be opened. The special advantages are barrier-free loading and unloading, positive locking automatic load securing, quick hitching and unhitching on the field combined with the firm handling properties of the tried and trusted chassis.
