Premium supplier Schwarzmüller has a portfolio of over 50 vehicle types for the construction industry. Four of them, plus the development arising from a cooperative partnership, will be presented in the open-air area North on stand 825/2 at bauma from 8 to 14 April:
- Thermally insulated body
- Steel segment body
- Low-loader trailer
- Tandem tipper
- Benzberg Tridem tipper body
Premiere: TÜV-certified thermally insulated body
For the first time a thermally insulated body is available with a TÜV seal of quality. This involved a demand from TÜV that Schwarzmüller adhere to strict regulations during the entire manufacturing process. TÜV confirms that no thermal bridges will occur while the vehicle is in use, and that the manufacturer abides by the appropriate DIN standard. Other parameters, such as the temperature profile of the mixed bituminous materials, the homogeneity of the temperature and the continuous calculation of the core temperature of the mixes in real time using sensors or the docking behaviour, influence the paving quality of the mixed bituminous materials. Schwarzmüller bodies with thermal insulation are regarded as the leading industry product in all these areas! Schwarzmüller has achieved thermal resistance (R value) of 1.80 m2 K/W, which exceeds the prescribed value of 1.65 m2 K/W by more than 10%. Other advantages offered by thermally insulated bodies include the ability to control a variety of practical applications via remote or smartphone. This includes, for example, comfortable operation of the electronic air suspension with lifting and lowering. The controls can also be used to raise the lift axle and to activate the paver brake, which also means simultaneously lifting by means of air suspension. That means tipping into the paver is safe. The electrical sliding covers can also be opened and closed via remote control or smartphone. The lightest Schwarzmüller thermally insulated body weighs in at an empty weight of 4.7 t. The optimised payload reduces both fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, which in turn reduces transport costs and helps protect the environment.
Steel segment body: hydraulic rear axle
With its lightweight construction torsion-resistant steel frame, this is the classic body with an empty weight of 5.3 t and upwards, pairing extreme robustness with a comparatively low empty weight. Torsion boxes and tubes installed horizontally into the frame, together with the 4-point tipper cylinder, improve the tipping stability of the steel segment body by up to 6%, thus ensuring increased safety. Air suspension axles with disc brakes and an automatic lowering mechanism ensure greater stability during tipping, while the hydraulic SAF-TRACK rear axle increases off-road capabilities and supports the tractor unit on challenging ground surfaces. The electronic braking system, including stability programme, the forced lowering of the automatic lift axles, the starting aid for the first axle and the tipper body in high-quality Hardox steel are further reasons why the Schwarzmüller steel body is the first choice for transporting sand, excavated earth and crushed stone.
Low-loader trailer: load carrier for overwidths
The most important criteria for low loaders used to transport construction machinery are the lowest possible empty weight, a low loading height and a robust frame construction. These are precisely the features offered by the 4-axle low-loader trailer with excavator shovel recess and roller buttress, with an empty weight of 7.95 t and above, a loading height on the low bed of approx. 0.87 m and a drive-on and offset frame section over the bogie. This allows for the trouble-free transport of tall and overwidth machinery. The engineers at Schwarzmüller have also come up with a few extras for this low loader: with its flat ramp angle of just eight degrees, the hydraulic double ramp with added lateral movement makes loading and unloading easier. With air suspension including lifting and lowering mechanism, as well as many lashing options, the chassis ensures optimum load tie-down. Schwarzmüller is also setting the standards in corrosion protection: drawbar, bogie and loading ramp are all hotdip galvanised as standard.
Tandem tipper: the ultimate lightweight on the market
Multifunctional, making it almost universally applicable: with its low empty weight starting at just 3.65 t, an internal width of 2.42 m suitable for loading pallets and a loading volume of around 11.6 m3, Schwarzmüller’s tandem 3-way tipper trailer, available in 1- or 3-axle versions, is ideal for transporting bulk materials or pallets. And with a tipper box constructed entirely from aluminium, it is the lightest trailer on the market. Easy to manoeuvre yet at the same time with a robust construction, the flexible tandem tipper trailer offers maximum capacity utilisation, in turn increasing productivity and profitability. Its key features include the tipper body’s patented hollow chamber construction, a threaded and therefore height-adjustable drawbar eye, the swing and folding side walls with spring lifting aids and central locking, as well as the swing rear wall with pneumatic locking. The offset drawbar also permits tilting while the trailer is coupled.
Benzberg Tridem tipper body: where the road never ends
Benzberg vehicles are extremely stable and secure, even in the roughest terrain. Their hydraulic chassis allows them to compensate for obstacles of up to 50 cm in height, while the specially shaped frame enables a 30° steering angle at an external width of 2.55 m with 65 cm wide wheels. Additionally, hydraulic slope compensation keeps the vehicle stable on uneven ground, serving to balance wheel load distribution. The offroad control system adds transparency and control via vehicle monitoring in real time using GPS, so that all relevant vehicle and load data can be called up at any time. All Benzberg vehicle frames are equipped with a multi-docking system, allowing them to be adapted for diverse areas of application. The advantage is that the vehicles are extremely versatile, whilst retaining a high resale value.
