Sliders allow the position of the fifth wheel coupling to be moved on the semi-trailer tractor unit. This allows the axle load and load distribution to be optimised, and the total length of the articulated vehicle to be reduced for ferry crossings or adapted to comply with national regulations.
JOSTís EV HD slider is suitable for use with heavy-duty fifth wheel couplings of all conventional makes with a connecting hole pattern in line with ISO 3842.
JOSTís EV M slider is suitable for use with fifth wheel couplings of all conventional makes with a connecting hole pattern in line with ISO 3842.
The JSK SL sliders can be equipped as an option with a pneumatic control and are supplied as a complete unit with integrated fifth wheel coupling. The SL series is outstanding as a result of its weight and flexibility. All Standard couplinges (sheet steel and cast) can be installed on it.
National regulations and JOST mounting instructions must be observed for their mounting.
The slider is mounted on the mounting angles of the tractor unit. There is no need for an additional mounting plate. Further details for fitting the slider are given in the mounting instructions.
