Pivoting axle for single-axle chassis

Lowering axles with pivoting mechanism
Lowering axles with pivoting mechanism

BPW Fahrzeugtechnik knows the trick: Lowering axles with pivoting mechanism

  • Maximum lowering capability
  • Maintenance-free rubber suspension axle
  • Cost-optimised system

Less complexity, less weight
Reduction of complexity and weight by elimination of several expensive hydraulic components.

Comfortable handling
Easy release of the lock and opening of the hydraulic valve. The trailer is lowered by its own weight, lifting is possible optionally with an electric (12V) or manual drive.

Reduction of loading height of up to 180 mm
The special lowering mechanism allows you to lower the loading edge of the trailer almost to road level, thus allowing easy loading and unloading.

Maintenance-free suspension and bearings
The rubber suspension axles used are maintenance-free and equipped with compact bearings with life-time lubrication.

Safety while driving
In contrast to conventional raise/lower systems, the mechanical lock prevents a lowering of the trailer while driving even if a leak of the hydraulic system occurs.
