'At this year’s IAA Commercial Vehicles we will be unveiling a brand-new vehicle, namely the ARCUS PK.'
Date 9 August 2018
The new STZ-PK 8 low-loader semitrailer has been designed with a completely new steering system. Developed by Goldhofer, the system ensures optimum steering control in all situations.
Preventing steering errors in forward and reverse motion, the new system also reduces tyre wear to a minimum and takes the hassle out of narrow construction site entrances and offers considerable time savings.
Member of the Board Hubert Schaller explains: “With the ARCUSPK, we now have the first low-loader semitrailer with self-tracking pendular axles in series production. Thanks to the innovative steering system, the vehicle has excellent cornering characteristics and also has a new, unique and user-friendly control system in the form of SmartControl.”
That greatly simplifies the operator's work, as the individual functions can now be operated at the touch of a button. The operator has a good overview of everything and is never in the danger zone when operating a ramp, for example.
Exhibiting at the IAA in Hall 25 on Stand C07, Goldhofer also have an outdoor area at the IAA where the company will also be presenting its new ALLROUNDER: the STN-L 3 low-loader semitrailer with self-tracking axles. The ALLROUNDER offers all the usual basic functions, low dead weight and full range of load securing options, suitable for a wide range of transport tasks including transporting high machines at low ride heights.
And where does the name ARCUS PK come from? Arcus was the Latin name of a versatile bow used by Roman soldiers with great accuracy over any distance, and it was also a triumphal arch for commemorating great events!
