The 100T Range was of course developed further. A second trailer came with a two-axle dolly that was made to slide over the beam. An extra loose beam could also be added to this single-extendable trailer to increase the extension length if necessary. This way, the trailer maintained a low tare weight compared to a double-extendable version.
The next development was a trailer where the dolly was fully removable and extendable. The 100T Range thus became "modular", consisting of a neck, a dolly and an axle set. This variant remains the "standard" to this day.Further development of the SL suspension system did not stand still either, and soon came the SL2, where the driving height no longer affects the axle alignment.
The 100T Range came in single, double and triple extendable variants, with a loose spacer to extend the load floor, loose intermediate beams and even with a lowered load floor between the dolly and axle set. The dollies came in two- or three-axle variants, and the axle sets from four to seven axles.
Following the introduction of the pendulum axle low loader, the 100T Range was also updated with these axles. As a result, both suspension systems are now available. With this wide range, every transporter can configure the right 100T Range solution
10 Years 100T Range
A nice detail is that the 10th anniversary of the 100T Range is being celebrated with the delivery of a 3+7 100T`er on pendulum axles to the same customer who also commissioned the first semi-trailer, namely firm Van Wieren Special B.V. in Emmeloord.
This trailer will be on display at the IAA Hanover.
