The new Kögel Light plus: more payload, more internal height and more margin

Kögel is presenting a new generation of Kögel Light curtain-sider trucks, the Kögel Light plus. The brand new, specially developed Kögel Light plus comes with a payload-optimised and weight-optimised frame and body. With a low tare weight, starting at 4,775 kilograms with individual equipment, and 5,145 kilograms in its standard version, it is exceptionally cost-effective to drive. The technical total weight is 39,000 kilograms and the technical fifth-wheel load is 12,000 kilograms. Its excellent stability and durability, despite the sparing use of materials in its construction, is ensured through the use of high-quality fine grain steels.
