Body Carrier handling swap bodies efficiently and also fifth wheel and drawbar trailers
Terberg YT yard tractors (4x2) are used as shunters (tugs) at many distribution centres where they have proven themselves to be much more appropriate for trailer shunting than conventional road tractors.
For example, they have an optimised driveline and gearbox, while their lifting fifth wheel saves time as trailers can be shunted without raising the landing legs. The high reliability and fuel efficiency of Terberg units come to the fore in these applications where they often have to work around the clock. Where permitted by local regulations, some operators also use these tractors for short trips on public roads.
Operators using swap bodies appreciate the Terberg BC body carrier; it not only handles swap bodies very efficiently but can also tow fifth wheel and drawbar trailers. The Mobiler is a solution for transferring ISO containers and swap bodies between rail wagons and road vehicles without costly handling equipment.
Our heavier tractors provide a good solution for sites with hills, ramps and regular icing. Additionally we offer road/rail tractors which can operate on rail track laid in a paved surface or on sleepers.
