All of the fifth wheels in the SK-S 36.20 range from HOLLAND are particularly light thanks to the spheroidal graphite cast iron, and are equipped with a safety latch that allows coupling or uncoupling with one hand.
Additional convenient visual control of locking status through the position of the Automatic Safety Latch, indicating fully locked and secured (raised) or open (lowered) conditions.
The dual-height fifthwheel is designed for volume transportation with 2-axle low liner tractors and MEGA-trailers. The adjustable height of the fifth wheel means the low liner tractor can also be used for standard trailers.

Features and Benefits
The versatility and diverse options offered by the height-adjustable fifth wheel provide significant benefits in the capacity utilization of your semi-trailer trucks. This in turn gives you grater flexibility and competitiveness in your pricing, ultimately resulting in significantly higher profits. The sturdy design is robust and only involves minor maintenance costs after purchase. Downtimes are reduced to an absolute minimum - flexibility is the key advantage.
As manufactures of the most lightweight fifth wheel in the world, we have deliberately not aimed for weight reduction when designing the height-adjustable fifth wheel, but instead given priority to stability and sturdiness. To ensure a long and reliable service life for this fifth wheel, all elements require a solid design in a raised position in particular, so as to absorb the resultant forces without any problems. The simple design without sensitive pneumatic components enables our customers to extend the use of their fifth wheel to a second or third service life on newly purchased semi-trailer trucks. Simply, robust and reliable - three outstanding benefits in one.
The height-adjustable fifth wheel SK-S 36.20 H is part of a well-conceived and modular system. RECOSS®, the electronic assistant, gives the driver an added element of safety. It goes without saying that RECOSS® also offers economic benefits - intelligent options for success.
