Potteries Heavy Haulage take delivery of a Goldhofer STZ-VP 2 wafer deck low loader

Potteries Heavy Haulage Ltd. of Stoke-on-Trent/GB, a specialist in international heavy and abnormal load haulage, has added a Goldhofer STZ-VP 2 wafer deck low loader to its ever-increasing trailer fleet. The choice was influenced by such factors as low deadweight and the short bogie and above all by the flexibility offered to handle the UK company’s wide-ranging operational requirements.

“Apart from the usual cargoes like pressure vessels, generator sets, structural components and machines, we also transport industrial plant. In addition, our transport portfolio includes boats and construction machines such as excavators and cranes. In the light of this extensive range of haulage services, the STZ-VP 2 is the perfect answer to our need for an almost universal low loader” says Rob Powell, Operations Manager at Potteries Heavy Haulage. “We also benefit from the high payloads made possible by the low deadweight and from the high standard of vehicle safety and good tracking performance.”

With a fifth-wheel load of 23 tons, the highly versatile STZ-VP 2 features a 22cm deep extendable low profile deck with outer beams and inserting floor for use as a flat bed or vessel deck. Plus it has additional coupling points to take more beams and increase the overall lower deck length, as well as a deep and wide excavator/vessel recess in the rear bogie. The hydraulic gooseneck is fabricated with outer beams, so when transporting boats, for example, that means the bow can be positioned further forward. The bogie is Goldhofer’s tried and tested two-axle pendular axle bogie with a loading height of 1,100 mm. Thanks to a suspension stroke of up to 600 mm and a maximum steering angle of 60 degrees, construction site access is never a problem in even the most difficult cases.
