Vehicle combination goes to the north

Volvo truck and ES-GE trailer for Schröder GmbH & Co. KG

At last year’s IAA Commercial Vehicles, Mr Brockmann from Diedrich Schröder GmbH & Co. KG approached us. While the original interest was exclusively focussed on our tandem trailer, it quickly became apparent that the purchasing manager would like to expand the fleet of the construction and civil engineering company with a complete combination of truck and trailer. To make it short: 6 months later we delivered. In April we handed over two new vehicles to the  company from Bremervörde. A look at the company’s history reveals that the company, with over 200 employees and a 70-year company history, combines a wealth of experience and extensive know-how under one roof. We are  pleased that we were able to implement the project successfully and professionally.


Fassi F485RA.2 xe-dynamic

The model F485RA.2 xe-dynamic from Fassi has been used on some of our tractor units and has proven itself in the past. At this year’s BAUMA we exhibited a vehicle from Mercedes-Benz with a loading crane of the same type. Whether behind the cab of a tractor or at the rear of a truck – the supplied crane by Fassi leaves nothing to be desired. Equipment features of the crane device include u.a. XF and XP – “Extra Fast” and “Extra Power”. The stability control “FSC – Fassi Stability Control” is on board as well as numerous optional extras such as the comfortable remote control with display.

Volvo FH4 ​​with steering axle

The chassis of the crane truck comes from Volvo. The 3-axle FH4 truck has a maximum engine output of 345 kW (469 hp) and a maximum torque of 2,346 Nm. Between the loading crane at the rear and the driver’s cab, the chassis picks up a low-construction container flatbed with a loading height of approx. 1,020 mm (unloaded). The loading area is e.g. equipped with container locks, which can be pulled out to a total width of approx. 3,000 mm and are suitable for the transport of 20 ‘containers.


ES-GE tandem trailer

Numerous options and versatile applications make our 2-axle trailer a popular all-rounder. The delivered vehicle is – like the truck – equipped with side walls and retractable container locks, which are suitable for the transport of oversized “20 ‘containers (up to 3,000 mm). The side walls can be folded down and removed if necessary. They are stowed in a side wall magazine. Flexibility is the core theme around the vehicle. It is equipped with an adjustable drawbar, which can be pulled out in increments of (6x) 100 mm, and with an extension at the rear, which can be removed four times by about 200 mm and carries up to 2,000 kg. The equipment package is completed with numerous lashing options and with the adjustable ramps, which can be stowed below the loading floor. We wish Diedrich Schröder GmbH & Co. KG always a good ride!
