The new generation of self-tracking semi lowloaders combines Goldhofer’s proven high standard of engineering with attractive pricing plus practical details such as an intelligent load securing system.
With the user-friendly self-tracking semi lowloaders in the »STEPSTAR« series, you are ideally equipped for everyday haulage operations with payloads of up to 70 t.

EFFICIENTLY WITH 26.3 t PAYLOAD

The self-tracking »STEPSTAR« semi lowloaders come with an outstanding payload-to-weight ratio. The advanced design of the »STEPSTAR« results in significant weight savings over comparable vehicles and thus an increased payload of 1 t or more. That is the key to efficient and economical utilization of your fleet.

   26.3 T PAYLOAD WITH PERMANENT PERMIT AROUND GERMANY*

   ECONOMIC FLEET UTILIZATION

* Gross weight: 41.8 t | Truck 4x2: 7.0 t | Stepstar STN-L 3 (Plant Trailer): 8.5 t

MORE PAYLOAD

  • Very light frame construction
  • Optimized vehicle extension (optional)
  • Higher stability and payload due to center tube design

MORE SAFETY

  • Safe loading and transport with a width of more than 2,500 mm with light, stable widening planks
  • Lightweight components increase payload and work safety
  • Further weight saving with safe TRAFFIDECK™ GO flooring (optional)

»MEGA« GOOSENECK

With the optional »MEGA« gooseneck of the »STEPSTAR« semi-trailers more loads than ever can be transported with one trailer. The combination of the very low coupling height of a lowliner tractor with the flat construction of the »MEGA« gooseneck results in an extremely low usable loading height. This allows the transportation of wheeled vehicles, divided loads, small parts and even a 40-foot or two 20-foot container within 16.5 m total length. The "MEGA" gooseneck is available for all vehicles of the »STEPSTAR« family.

EXCAVATOR BOOM RECESS

The special feature of the extra long and wide excavator recess of the »STEPSTAR« semi lowloaders is that it has no cross members and is open to the rear. This makes it possible to carry even bigger excavator booms while simultaneously reducing overall height. With up to three removable bulkheads, even small parts can be secured efficiently and space-saving.

 COST-EFFECTIVE TRANSPORTATION

WHEEL RECESSES

»STEPSTAR« semi-trailers are optionally available with one or two wheel recesses. The loading platform can be converted quickly and efficiently for other loads thanks to the well thought-out wheel recess covers. With the extendable vehicle variants in particular, loads with different wheelbases can be transported easily.

 FULFILLMENT OF THE MOST STRINGENT HEIGHT GUIDELINES

 REDUCED SET-UP TIMES FOR DIFFERENT LOADS

Extension of the wheel recess by inserting aluminium elements

Low entry angle and climbing rails for safe driving even with low slope angles

High-quality aluminium wheel recess covers, optionally extendable to 3,000 mm

Second wheel recess depth for loads with low ground clearance by using the aluminium covers

RAMPS

The long and light ramps of the »STEPSTAR« series are a further advantage in day-to-day transport operations. With a low ramp angle and the ground-friendly lowering mechanism, loading is child’s play.

 FAST AND EASY LOADING

 EFFICIENT RETURN JOURNEY
