A semi-trailer chassis is a vehicle frame that serves as a basis for a semi-trailer. It commonly consists of two or more wheels and the framework for a fitting semi-trailer. The chassis cannot move by itself and will always need a motorised pulling vehicle. The chassis can be equipped with a bed, a box or a container of any kind and does not include a cab. The wheels and other important parts of the chassis are often protected by shields. A semi-trailer chassis regularly has its own license plate and lights.
Load of any kind
The connections for the flow and compressed air supply in a semi-trailer chassis are often protected from damage when setting up the semi-trailer. The chassis is one of the most powerful parts of a complete semi-trailer. Load of any kind can be placed on the chassis with help from a bed or box. The axle needs to carry the weight and must therefore be very strong. Pneumatic suspension makes it possible to carry a heavy load during transport. A motorised vehicle makes it possible for the chassis to be pulled forward and serve as part of the transport.
Multiple listings on Tradus
In the Truck category, several cab and chassis listings can be found. These are not to be confused with semi-trailer chassis listings, of which less are listed on Tradus. However, there are still many listings of used semi-trailer chassis. Mercedes-Benz, Iveco, MAN, Fliegl, Volvo, Van Hool, and Krone are some of the brands that are available.
