Nooteboom presented their OSDS semi-low loader, the effectiveness of which appeared to be overwhelming. The vehicle is a part of SMART program of the company. The creation was aimed at achieving higher efficiency and more possibilities.The machinery is able to transport loads of various weights. The dead weight of the vehicle is as low as possible, while the running costs are also minimal. Such solution turned the trailer into a perfect ratio of possibilities and prices. Besides, the vehicle itself is comparatively cheap.
The machinery was developed for both professional and private transport operators, which became another advantage of the vehicle. Creating the trailer, Nooteboom applied the most advanced technologies and methods. It is considered a multitrailer created with only A-brand elements.
The tubular beam is created with high-grade steel, which is a guarantee of:
- reliable chassis
- low load floor height
- great torsional stiffness
- low dead weight.
What’s more, the trailer has the quality finish and conservation, while the chassis is fully zinc coated.
Despite such high quality, the price of the machinery is competitive. It is supported by the low operational and maintenance costs, long period of life, and high effectiveness.
