Goldhofer STN-L4 Presented at Bruntingthorpe Plantworx 2015

Goldhofer STN-L4 showcases its talents for transporting all kinds of construction machinery at the UK trade show.
When the construction plant industry gathers for the 2015 Plantworx trade show at Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome, Leicestershire on 2 – 4 June, Goldhofer – the German quality vehicle manufacturer from Memmingen – will be one of the exhibitors. From its wide ranging product portfolio, the leading vendor of equipment for heavy and ultra-heavy haulage, will be presenting the STN-L4 low loader semitrailer (outdoor stand 13A2).

“Optimum handling is essential for the safe and economical transportation of construction equipment. Our transportation program, which has been developed in cooperation with users, provides just that,” says Stefan Fuchs, CEO of Goldhofer Aktiengesellschaft.

With its friction-steered low loader semitrailers in the STN series, Goldhofer offers haulage and construction companies a cost-effective alternative to force-steered vehicles. The series includes the STN-L4 with four axles, which offers an axle load of 4x 12,000 kg and a fifth-wheel load of 26,000 kg. With a payload of just under 60 t, the STN-L4 is the ideal solution for transporting construction plant. The advantages of the STN-L4 also include an optimum deadweight to payload ratio, long service life and low maintenance costs.

Plantworx is a biennial trade show, which made its debut in 2013 as the modified and improved successor to the SED, which was last held in 2009. In collaboration with a number of leading brand manufacturers in the construction plant industry, the Construction Equipment Association (CEA) developed a new concept for the event, taking even better account of the needs of exhibitors and visitors than the SED. With an attendance in excess of 11,000 visitors, the 2013 premiere of Plantworx 2013 was an immediate success. In view of the increase in the numbers of visitors and exhibitors expected at this year’s Plantworx, the organizers decided to move the venue to Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome, which offers 40% more space.

Goldhofer is the world market leader for transport equipment in the field of general and heavy-duty road haulage and oversized cargo transportation. With a full and technologically mature range of products, Goldhofer meets an extremely wide variety of needs in almost every transport situation. In the Goldhofer plant on some 100,000 square meters of grounds, more than 650 employees work on innovative transport solutions and produce perfectly engineered vehicles for payloads varying between 25 and more than 10,000 tons for demanding customers around the world. The history of Goldhofer Aktiengesellschaft goes back to 1705. In 2013 Goldhofer acquired Schopf Maschinenbau GmbH, thus further expanding its product portfolio in the fields of civil and military aviation and the mining industry.

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?
