DOLL Deliver Colossus to Velebit in Eastern Europe

DOLL Deliver Colossus to Velebit in Eastern Europe

The trailers of the panther series are the pioneers when it comes to flexibility and high payloads. DOLL has now delivered the next colossus to company Velebit in Eastern Europe.

DOLL Trailer for Velebit

For many years the Croatian forwarding company has been customer of DOLL and swears by the proven panther technology. Most recently, their vehicle fleet has been complemented by an 8-axle semi low-loader, type S8E-S2 (2+6) with 2-axle dolly and a payload of 96.5 tonnes. Velebit chose this type of trailer to be able to transport small and heavy goods such as transformers as well as long and heavy concrete and brigde bearers or construction machinery.

This makes the 8-axle panther semi low-loader the ideal configuration to build a bridge between these two contrasting requirements and to transport especially high payloads. The payload can even be increased by another  10 % by mounting an additional 1-axle dolly behind the compensating gooseneck – DOLL is the only trailer manufacturer providing this feature. This fact makes the trailer also suitable for economic 3- or 4-axle trucks whereas 5-axle trucks may be fully omitted. Nevertheless, the 2+6 axle design still ensures an optimum load distribution between dolly and truck.

Velebit Introduce DOLL Trailer

As the hydraulic suspension of the 2-axle dolly is connected with the gooseneck, the fifth-wheel load can easily be changed hydraulically according the truck which is an enormous gain regarding flexibility. All in all, the telescopic length can individually be extended by another 30 m by mounting an extension girder with the help of a bolt-lashing-connection to be able to transport especially long cargo – features that make the panther trailer a synonym for highest quality, maximum safety, flexibility and profitability made by DOLL.

Further technical highlights are:

– Ramps at the rear to load e. g. construction machinery
– Total stroke of more than 400 mm for optimum axle compensation even in off-road usage
– Control of all relevant functions via CAN bus operating concept

DOLL is convinced that the 8-axle semi low-loader will exceed the expectations of its new owner and wishes Velebit a smooth drive.

HeavyTorque is an essential read magazine for decision makers within the heavy haulage and specialist transport industry and provides a great opportunity for manufacturers to make their mark. The adverts are well produced, editorials exceptionally informative and the staff’s support has always been excellent. Promoting our products in HeavyTorque magazine is one of the best marketing decisions we have made.

Kelsa choose to advertise in HeavyTorque because its content is clearly for serious players in the haulage industry, with a wide range of informative articles. We know that it reaches the right people and covers aspects of trucking most others do not, offering information on changes within the industry as well as new products and services. As a designer I’m also aware of the extremely high quality of the photographic content and print. We are really happy with the service we receive and have no hesitate in recommending HeavyTorque to truckers everywhere.

I certainly enjoy reading HeavyTorque - and whilst we do not operate any heavy haulage ourselves - we do so on a sub-contract basis. Therefore, it’s good to see what equipment is being used by both suppliers, and the industry operators alike. The content and photographic quality is always first rate. Keep up the great work!

HeavyTorque magazine is a class apart. Its orientation illustrates our sector on a different level. The general look is really unique and we value the highly informative content. The magazine is an ideal communication platform and partner for the Faymonville Group – who offer the complete transport solution for payloads from 15t to 15,000t… and beyond.

From the drivers’ viewpoint, HeavyTorque is a must-read for those interested or associated with the heavy haulage industry. The title is very informative on a wide range of projects - not only in the UK - but worldwide. On another note, it was a personal privilege (as a driver) to be invited to the industry awards evening, The Heavies… but to then be awarded 'The Heavies Hero' in 2017 was an amazing achievement. May I say a massive thank you to my fellow peers for their continued support and nominations!
