What are used semi-trailers?
Every transportation company has not only road tractor units
, but also various types of trailers. One of such types is a semi-trailer. It doesn't have a front axle, and that's why it has to be supported by a road tractor or another trailer. When it's detached, it has landing gear to support it. On a truck, the fifth wheel connects with the semi-trailer thanks to Kingpin, which is fully interchangeable. The main advantage of a semi-trailer is that it is more flexible than a rigid truck and can quickly be mounted or unmounted when needed, which also allows for quick change of the tractor unit in case of breakdown. It can also carry greater loads than a regular trailer, as a regular trailer has a draw-bar linking the two vehicles. Moreover, the weight is distributed evenly among a smaller number of axles, which is an advantage on muddy terrain or on snow. A semi-trailer can be connected to a tractor by a fifth wheel coupling or automatic connection. The semi-trailers themselves come in various shapes and sizes. If you own a transportation company, trailers are a must and semi-trailers seem like a fairly good solution to that need.
