HYDRAULICALLY STEERED AXLES The new MCOS semi low-loaders are equipped with hydraulically steered axles . Due to the maximum steering angle of 45 degrees , these semi lowloaders offer more transport efficiency , reduced tyre wear and excellent manoeuvrability .
CENTRAL CONTROL UNIT The central control unit of the MCOS semi lowloader is located under the load floor . In this central unit all functions and hydraulic components are grouped together , including the air suspension raising / lowering function , parking brake and axle load pressure gauge .
WIDTH ENLARGEMENT The load floor has a standard width of 2520 mm and can be enlarged in width to 3020 mm by means of sliding outriggers . These ‘ heavy duty ’ galvanised outriggers are integrated in both side raves of the load floor . Special hardwood bolsters can be fitted between the outriggers .
