SAF-Holland expands landing gear range for trailers
The SAF-Holland Hercules landing gear is now available in a compact version, the SAF Hercules Compact, for low-loaders, heavy duty transport vehicles and volume vehicles.
The SAF Hercules Compact can manage loads of up to 24,000 kg a large lift. The continuous SAF rear plate allows the landing gear to be attached in different ways. While the SAF Hercules is designed for standard vehicles such as flatbed and cooling trailers, the Compact version is intended for users of low-loaders and volume vehicles. SAF-Holland offers a three year warranty for both versions.

Both models have an impact-resistant external gearbox which makes inspections easy. A special sealing allows the landing gears to be used in rough conditions and protects against environmental influences and stone impact. QR codes on the landing gears help with ordering spare parts: the QR code reader in the SH Connect app allows users to scan the label. They can then use the ‘parts on demand’ electronic spare parts catalogue to directly order the required spare part on a table or smartphone.
The SH Connect app is available as a free download for Android and iOS devices on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. The spare parts catalogue is available at pod.safholland.com.
The new SAF swivel leg has been developed to provide high ground clearance for central axle trailers. It has a compact design with a low height. Your rear plate is either welded or bolted on. With the swivel function, the new leg provides a large ground clearance for rigid drawbar trailers and facilitates coupling of close-coupled central axle trailers. The lift capacity is 4,000 kg, with a static load of 8,000 kg. A special coating provides the swivel leg with long-term protection against stone impact and environmental influences.
The SAF drop leg completes the landing gear range from SAF-Holland. The drop leg was developed for tippers, tank trailers and silo trailers and is therefore particularly robust with a low weight. It is suitable for static loads up to 15,000 kg per leg or 30,000 kg per set. The prerequisite is that the tractor unit has a rear axle with air suspension. The height of the foot can be adjusted easily and the drop can be set and adapted variably in small steps – fast and easy handling in any weather.
The SAF drop leg is manufactured using high-strength steel and robust pull handles for high durability. The large support foot is welded to the base plate on four sides. The 3D mounting plate at the top is lightweight and a surface sealing on the top prevents ingress of dirt and water.
