SDC Trailers

Multi-functional skeletal

SDC has developed a splitter skeletal, or multi-functional skeletal trailer, with the purpose of allowing the user more flexibility when delivering and picking up loads.

When carrying the 2x20ft container, the trailer can be split. This means the operator can drop the rear chassis off with a 20ft container on board, and continue his journey with the front section of the chassis, on a single axle.

This saves the operator money and time, but also gives his end customer more flexibility.

Benefits of SDC's Multi-functional skeletal:

  • Enhanced flexibility of operation
  • Low maintenance and repair costs
  • High residual value
