Product Detail

The primary function of the Trailer Horse is to support the weight under the kingpin of a trailer while being shipped on a Ro-Ro vessel without being attached to a truck. After lowering the trailer onto the Trailer Horse, it is crucial to secure it with chains to maintain its position and prevent damages caused by lateral movements during transit.

 The Weight-controlled Rolling Gear Of Trailer Horse

The weight-controlled rolling gear of the Trailer Horse is a specialized mechanism that ensures the secure and balanced transport of trailers on Ro-Ro vessels. This feature plays a crucial role in maintaining stability and preventing any potential damage during transit.

The rolling gear is designed to distribute the weight evenly and effectively under the kingpin of the trailer. By carefully controlling the weight distribution, the gear helps to minimize the risk of excessive stress or strain on the trailer and the vessel.

Through the use of weight sensors and hydraulic systems, the rolling gear adjusts and adapts to the weight of the trailer, ensuring that it remains stable and well-supported throughout the journey. This technology allows for precise weight control and enables the Trailer Horse to accommodate trailers with different load capacities.

By utilizing weight-controlled rolling gear, the Trailer Horse provides a reliable and efficient solution for the transportation of trailers on Ro-Ro vessels. It enhances safety, reduces the risk of damage caused by uneven weight distribution, and ensures a smooth and secure transit experience.
