From fields to construction sites: Award-winning "AGRO Drive" drive axle from BPW also available for construction trailers

Soft, loose and wet ground and slopes quickly push even hauled construction vehicles to their limits. With a hydraulic drive axle from BPW, drawbar trailers are now digging their own way out of the sludge: originally developed for agricultural use, the award-winning "AGRO Drive" system is also taking construction sites by storm.

BPW now makes it possible to determine the weight of the load using a new type of sensor that via a hub wirelessly transmits its data from the drawbar trailer axle directly to end devices and via an ISO bus interface also to the driver's cab. This allows drivers and transport companies to gain full transparency over mileage and transported quantities – and can also bill by weight.

The next generation of Europe’s top-selling trailer disc brake is in the starting blocks – but it doesn't come alone: BPW is also supplying a completely redeveloped sensor which is the first to continuously measure brake lining wear and thus enable visits to the garage to be timed perfectly. The system requires no maintenance and can be retrofitted for all BPW trailer disc brakes.
