HYPRO - Model HV14 - Forwarder Trailer
From Forwarder Trailer
The demand for a really steady trailer, a forwarder trailer, was met by Hypro in 2003. At that time, demands and requirements came from many of our export markets, but also from customers in Sweden who wanted a trailer of high quality and uncompromising stability.
Hypro HV14 Forwarder Trailer was ready in the late autumn of 2003 and was thoroughly tested under various tough working conditions. After the test period, it was clear that the trailer complied with the highest standards and that it had proven exceptional in many respects.
The trailer has a very sturdy frame structure and big wheels that give high ground clearance and low ground pressure – something that gives a competitive edge when it comes to performance.
The trailer has a double frame construction thanks to which it is very stable during crane work. The trailer does not need any support leg, which saves work time and reduces the total weight. As far as operation is concerned, customers can choose between robson drive or planetary gear. The advantage of robson drive is that it allows the use of protection against skidding (chain) on the driving wheels. It is easy to disconnect the drive during long distance driving. The trailer has a bogie with 22-degree oscillate ability for good manoeuvre capacity under tough terrain conditions.
Just as ordinary forwarders, the trailer is equipped with fixed bunks but is also available with loose, movable bunks. The trailer has frame steering with double steering cylinders which are well protected. The loading capacity of the trailer is 14 tonnes and its weight is approx. 3 tonnes.
The crane we use comes from Sweden’s leading crane manufacturer, Cranab, a name recognised for quality all over the world. The equipment is controlled with the help of a Can-bus system with mini joysticks which is easy to install in the cabin. The Can-bus system makes it very easy to electronically adjust the maximum and minimum value of each movement. There are nine different programmable presets, each of which has its own steering curve. The mini joystick system with Can-bus steering gives the highest possible driving performance.
We are pleased that there is an increasing interest for large and sturdy quality trailers, whose construction is carefully designed to fit the work conditions forest trailers encounter all over the world. Hypro HV14 Forwarder Trailer complies with these requirements precisely.
