Product details

BPW connecting assemblies for centre axle drawbar trailers and turntable drawbar trailers

BPW hitch blocks are mounted close to the rear axle of the tractor unit and provide a secure connection between truck vehicle and trailer. Developed for trailers with permitted total weight up to 24 t, they are suitable for even the heaviest loads.

The choice of drawbar assembly depends on the truck/trailer combination used. The two most important combinations consist of a truck vehicle and a centre axle drawbar trailer, or a truck vehicle and a drawbar trailer with turntable steering. BPW offers a full range of drawbar assemblies for both combinations.
 

How the BPW centre axle drawbar trailer works

These trailers have between one and up to three axles in the centre of the vehicle. A rigid drawbar on the vehicle frame connects it to the truck vehicle. The trailer can be steered because the axle(s) is/are installed in the centre. The drawbar installation is characterised as “rigid” because not only horizontal but also vertical forces are transmitted. As a static load, these make up between min. 4 % and max. 10 % (or 2000 kg) of the total trailer weight. Centre axle drawbar trailers are connected as low as possible under the truck vehicle unit to improve their driving characteristics.
 

How the BPW turntable drawbar trailer works

A turntable drawbar trailer can be steered because it has a separate articulation joint. This means the rigid front axle of the trailer is mounted in the chassis so it can turn by means of a sub-frame with a turntable. The BPW product range includes twin-row turntables for this purpose offering the highest levels of quality and service life. The drawbar and its associated height adjustment features are attached to the sub-frame. Various versions are available, and they can also be coupled low down like rigid drawbars.

See our brochure for more information on the series AB 75 and PAB 17 as well as the UFK 100 III under-run bar.

The safe connection between tractor vehicle and trailer

The hitch block - mounted on the chassis of the tractor vehicle - makes it possible to connect a centre axle drawbar trailer or a low-coupled turntable drawbar trailer. It is equipped with a suitable hitch for accommodating the towing eye.
