The 100-Tonner Range has been an important innovation in the series of SL trailers. It is extraordinary that up to 90 tonnes can be transported on this semi-low loader. This trailer is especially engineerd for transporting trams and trains.
Transporting trams and trains including loading and unloading these delicate machines, is a specialised trade. The “butterfly ramp” is used to do this safely and easily.
This ramp does look unusual at first glance. Fully extended, the functionality becomes clear. The ramp is extended in no less than four stages and brought to the desired length with separate rail elements. In this way, the slope angle for trains can be made as small as possible.
