Silo semi-trailers are indispensable for transporting bulk goods by road. Large quantities of goods can easily be transported with these trailers. Only a few manufacturers are active in the field of silo trailers. These are Feldbinder, Spitzer, Ardor, Lag and Kässbohrer. BAS World always has a large selection of different trailers of different age and with different options in stock. This way, BAS World has a silo semi-trailer for every possible scenario.
Most silo trailers are identical in design. Models can be distinguished from one another based on their capacity. This can vary from ± 35 to 60 m³. In addition, some silo semi-trailers are equipped with a steering or lift axle or ADR certified. A number of trailers have a special coating on the inside, so that the load does not come into contact with the aluminum tank.
Silo trailers are especially suitable for transporting large quantities of bulk goods such as milk powder or sugar. In theory, any loose good can be loaded. Silo semi-trailers can also be fitted with multiple compartments. This allows several substances to be transported separately
Most silo trailers fall into three categories: hopper bottoms, tipper silos and banana (shaped) trailers. A hopper bottom is divided into a number of compartments. Each compartment has its own discharge opening at the bottom. Tipper silos have one release opening at the rear. The entire tank tilts due to the hydraulic cylinder at the front of the trailer. "Banana trailers" have only one opening at the bottom, making the shape look like a banana. These types of semi-trailers are widely used for the transport of cement.
The price of a silo trailer is largely based on its year of manufacture. At BAS World you can already buy a silo semi-trailer for €8,000. The price of a new unit is about €30,000. Additional options such as a lift axle will increase the price. BAS World always has a large selection of silo semi-trailers of different age in stock.
