As the market leader, Goldhofer will be putting in a major appearance at HeavyTorque LIVE! the most important heavy haulage trade show in the UK. The company will also be participating in The Heavies and is looking forward to some interesting contributions and lively discussions on the latest developments in the transport industry. The Goldhofer stand at the trade show itself will feature an »ADDRIVE« and a STZ-VP 5 (285). The 4-axle THP/ADD aka »ADDRIVE« has developed into the transport industry standard since its international debut at BAUMA 2016. »ADDRIVE« is the first powered heavy-duty module that combines the characteristics of a towed and a self-propelled module. With this unique combination, it has set a new benchmark in terms of tractive force, speed, versatility and economics. The additional drive disconnects automatically when maximum speed is reached and can be activated again on a flexible basis to handle particularly heavy loads and steep gradients as required.

The second Goldhofer exhibit also sets new standards worldwide: The STZ-VP 5 is the low loader semitrailer with the highest load-carrying capacity from the house of Goldhofer. Thanks to the precision-calculated geometry of the axle suspension, Goldhofer’s proven pendular axle technology ensures free oscillation of the wheel sets and even distribution of the load to the tires, even for off-road working. With a maximum axle load of 16 tons and a fifth-wheel load of 45 tons on a vehicle built with perfectly matching tried and tested components, from the extra-wide 285 mm tires to the extremely rugged frame, the STZ-VP 5 guarantees reliable transport operations with even the heaviest cargos.

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.

HeavyTorque has set a new standard in specialist print and on-line journalism. Not only is it attractive and appealing with great photography and layout, but the features provide in depth and incisive insight into this highly specialised sector of the road transport industry.

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!

We have been more than impressed with the professional production of HeavyTorque. It’s been a pleasure to deal with the team across all elements of the process from advertising, design and editorial content. A first class approach to the management and most importantly the quality of content makes HeavyTorque an obvious choice for us.
