Kogel new Cargo semi trailer of the NOVUM generation. The highly stable frame has a sophisticated crossbeam arrangement for transporting heavy loads and for use in a very wide variety of road conditions, daily loading operations, and extreme conditions. The Kogel Cargo also has a low tare weight of 5,920 kilograms in the basic version and a highly robust body. This makes it ideally suited for payload-intensive transport. The Kögel Cargo is also equipped with the directionally stable and reliable KTA trailer axles as standard. The unique “double suspension” of the KTA, made from a soft rubber bearing and a spring steel wishbone, not only enhances the driving characteristics of the trailer but also reduces tyre wear.
Safety and load-securing
On the Kogel Cargo, no belts hang down in the loading area when the roof is open; they are integrated into the roof awning. This entirely eliminates straps snagging on the load. The new external frame profile greatly increases the accessibility of the VarioFix lashing points for optimum load-securing. 13 pairs of lashing shackles with an optional 4,000 kilograms of tensile force per lashing ring are also available. It goes without saying that the Cargo has the DIN EN 12642 Code XL load-securing certificate.
Heavy-duty RoRo equipment
For unaccompanied boat and ferry transport, the exhibit has optional RoRo equipment with a diagonal reinforcement from the side member to the front corners of the frame, a ten-millimetre-thick closed slide plate, a ten-millimetre-thick wheel plate, four pairs of heavy-duty lashing rings with a test force of 12,000 kilograms as well as signage in accordance with DIN EN 29367-2. Two vertical Delta rubber profiles on the front for protection of the air and lighting console, reinforced semi-trailer supports in a ferry design with rollers and an underride guard with skids shortened to 2,340 millimetres complete the heavy-duty RoRo equipment.
The Kogel Cargo is equipped with a Kögel trailer telematics module. The Basic telematics package collects data such as the real-time position, coupling status and the EBS data.
