Trailer crab steering demonstration14 February 2020

VSE demonstrates rear steering and crab steering in an articulated tractor-trailer combination thanks to electro-hydraulic steering mechanisms on both axles of an animal transport semi-trailer.

The trailer is pulled by a Volvo 4x2 tractor owned by Dutch haulier Teus Kuiper. The video was filmed at animal transport bodybuilder J. Schaap en Zn of Tijnje, Netherlands.

(Forward the video to 0:52 to start the driven demonstration).

The technology, VSE's Electronic Trailer Steering system (which is also Dutch), is covered in the feature 'Running gear: Backseat driver' in the February 2019 edition: click here
