What are differences between hydraulic gooseneck and towing bar

Tow bar and hydraulic gooseneck can be chosen for various demands and road conditions. Trailer parts like the tire, axle, control panel, power packs, and other parts can be used in the original Goldhofer THP/SL trailer. Normally powered gooseneck is equipped with a small horsepower diesel engine(power pack) and hydraulic cylinders. Here below are the differences between them.

  1. With goose neck, hydraulic jack(cylinder) in the goose neck will put force on the tractor, no need to put counterweights on the truck(prime mover), and increase payload capacity and maneuverability of the modular trailer.
  2. In China, the gooseneck trailer (semi-trailer) is allowed to run on a high-speed road, tow bar trailer (called full trailer) is not allowed.
  3. The hydraulic gooseneck can stabilize the trailer on the high-speed driving mode.
  4. When turning in a narrow road, manually steering on the whole trailer is inevitable, it is easier to use a tow bar instead of a gooseneck.
  5. The force of the gooseneck press to prime mover is adjustable.
  6. The height of the kin pin on goose neck is adjustable, make it easy to remove gooseneck from the tractor.
  7. The gooseneck can not be worked with 4 or 3 files trailer(when trailer modules connected side by side), only the tow bar can go it.
  8. When the trailer is smaller than 7 lines, it is better to use the tow bar. Because the short trailer can not conduct enough hydraulic pressure to the gooseneck.
  9. It is hard to back a drawbar trailer, easy to reverse a neck trailer.
  10. For manual control steering, the tow bar is easier than the neck.

Evolved to Goldhofer PST SPMT
