Sliders for fifth wheel couplings

Sliders for fifth wheel couplings

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 the optimised and the total length of the articulated vehicle to be reduced for ferry crossings or adapted to comply with national regulations. JOST supply a range of adjustable sliders for fifth wheel couplings which are multipurpose, lightweight, compact and robust. Further details and instructions for mounting can be found below.
