THE WILLIG – TANK TRAILER

A GOOD CHOICE: THE WILLIG-TANK TRAILER

The WILLIG tank trailer is available as a drawbar trailer or as a centre axle trailer. Both options satisfy with compact design and excellent trailing characteristics. 

 

Notable technical details for both variants of the WILLIG tank trailer are provided on the following pages.

 

IN-FIELD INTERVIEW

WITH MR ALTINGER, HEAD OF FLORIAN ALTINGER GMBH & CO. KG

 

Why did you decide for a WILLIG drawbar trailer?

  • We have had excellent experience with WILLIG vehicles in the past. We chose a drawbar trailer because our new trailer will mainly be used primarily for inventory supply. The design provides for the comfortable and economic handling caracteristics of the unit, an important consideration when going long distances.

 

What benefits does a drawbar trailer offer when compared with a centre axle trailer in your opinion?

  • In my opinion, the choice between a drawbar trailer and centre axle trailer based on the day to day use it is intended for. Our new trailer unit is only secondarily intended for the delivery of goods. The complex manoeuvrability of the drawbar trailer hardly played a role in our decision.  In addition to its better handling characteristics, the ease with which it can be connected and disconnected spoke for the drawbar trailer because this results in enormous time savings when supplying our stock. The low tyre wear represents an additional cost saving in day-to-day operations.

How do you assess the drawbar trailer's trailing characteristics?

  • The drawbar trailer distinguishes itself through especially good trailing characteristics. The risk of "fish tailing" is far less compared with a tandem trailer. The trailer is easier to control and in this way ideal to steer.

 

The tanker's safety is also very important to us. Which safety advantages offers a WILLIG trailer? 

  • WILLIG's many years of experience speak for themselves. The extensive safety tests, putting the vehicle to the testing programm before delivery, guarantees us a safe vehicle. WILLIG tankers are state of the art. Disc brakes for example have for a long time been standard equipment on their trailers.
