You can select among several suspension options, self-steering or hydraulic steering systems, swelling king-plate, as well as automatically extendable drawbar options.
Turning Radius
We approach each LHV as a unique challenge to offer you the best possible solution. Based on the country-specific regulations, your cargo and route, we calculate the turning radius and decide on the trailer steering systems accordingly for the best tyre wear and road handling performance.
Load Through System
For fast and efficient distribution, Ecko Co2mbi Series can be fitted with a load-through system. In that case, the cooling system on the bulkhead is replaced by a cooling unit mounted on the chassis.
Taillift Options
Thanks to our extensive experience in twin decks, we can offer you state of the art loading ramps and cantilever lift applications that enable you to make the best out of a LHV combination. Whereas the rear semi-trailer can be fitted with taillift that either close upward or slide underneath, the front semi-trailer can be fitted with a sliding or cantilever lift.
Occuptional Health and Safety
Van Eck designs and builds LHV’s to minimize the occupational health and safety risk for drivers and field operators. In addition to regulatory requirements, options such as remote control for suspension height, remote control for taillift, remote control for rollers, ergonomically designed ladders and various load securing features, such as lashing rails or tracks are available.
