Open trailers differ little between themselves. An open semi-trailer can be fitted with 2 or 3 axles. The more axles, the larger the load capacity as the pressure per axle decreases. In addition to an extra axle, open semi-trailers can be equipped with various options that make them easier or more efficient to use. These options are, for example, stanchions or stake boxes, crane rails, a crane, steering axle or lifting axle.
Thanks to their design, open semi-trailers are suitable for a large number of different transports. Large, indivisible loads can, for example, be transported by the large loading floor. When the trailer is equipped with a loading crane and stakes (side posts), it can be used for forestry. Side boards on the other hand make it possible to transport stones.
The price of an open trailer is highly dependent on its external condition, year of manufacture and options. You can already buy an open semi-trailer from BAS World for €5,000. However, this would concern an intensively used unit. You can buy a younger used open trailer starting at €15,000.
