The movement of road trains with oversized loads is recognized as a dangerous method of transportation. That is why special conditions are created for transportation: separate routes are drawn up and certain permits are issued.
Non-standard heavy-duty equipment has a significant cost. A sudden breakdown of the vehicle is a driver’s nightmare, because it threatens the integrity of the precious cargo. Therefore, the semi-trailer must be presented for loading in perfect technical condition.
Taking into account the features of the design and its elements, with which troubles most often occur, it can be argued that the most vulnerable elements of a semi-trailer are the following:
Frames made of steel are characterized by wear resistance. However, due to improper operating conditions, cracks may form on the metal. This happens, for example, when the weight of the cargo exceeds the permissible norm.
When diagnostics and maintenance are performed, a mechanic can clean clogged hydraulic brake lines, replace brake fluid and brake pads. Most of the companies that use the trawl are not able to handle the repair themselves.
In addition, it is impossible to carry out repairs in conditions unsuitable for this, if cracks are found in the frame or axles, there is a violation of the curvature of the platform, or the brake cylinders are jammed. For major restoration of the structure, it should be delivered to the service center.
