Germany-based concrete safety barrier supplier, Hermann Spengler GmbH & Co. KG, has expanded its fleet with a non-tipping silo K.SSL 35 from Kässbohrer.
The K.SSL 35, which is reported to be Europe’s lightest and most efficient silo vehicle, will be used to transport cement.
Spengler owner, Florian Spengler, and Kässbohrer Tank & Silo Sales Manager, Michael Conrad, attended the delivery ceremony at the Kässbohrer production facility in Ulm.
“Kässbohrer’s non-tipping K.SSL 35 silo is the right choice for supplying cement to our own concrete plant with its quality, efficient discharge, very good manoeuvrability, high stability and carrying capacity,” said Florian Spengler.
“We believe that our latest Kässbohrer silos will increase our operational efficiency thanks to their low tare weight.
“The company’s competent service network in Germany and Europe, fast spare parts availability and quality aftersales service are also very important to us.
“In addition to the guarantee and assurance it provides, Kässbohrer also offers affordable financing solutions.”
Spengler is one of the largest suppliers of passive concrete safety barriers for public roads and motorways in Germany and has been in operation for more than 90 years. In its early years it was a sand and concrete factory that has since grown.
Conrad said: “We are proud to announce our cooperation with Spengler, one of the highly respected companies for precast concrete plant in Germany. Spengler’s newest investment is our non-tipping K.SSL 35 silo.
“For the most efficient cement transportation, Kässbohrer non-tipping K.SSL 35 silos offer optimum payload capacity with their 4,515 kg tare weight.
“Thanks to the re-engineered chassis design K.SSL 35 provides 3.0 per cent improvement in lateral inclination and lower centre of gravity, resulting in high manoeuvrability, safety, and efficiency even in the toughest working conditions.
“Depending on the on-site working conditions, K.SSL 35 is offered with several discharge solutions such as individual discharging per cone at left or right, single discharging at both sides, or discharge from the rear side, meeting your specific operational needs.
“In addition to Kässbohrer’s competent service network in Germany and Europe, manufacturer services, regular and maintenence services, accident damage and inspection of tank and silo parts are available at Kässbohrer’s production sites in Goch and Ulm.
“With K-Finance, Kässbohrer in co-operation BNP leading leasing solution partners, offering financing options that meet our customers needs with competitive rates and payment options.
“With our highest-quality vehicles and growing after-sales services network, we will continue to support our valuable customer Spengler.
“We consider this investment as the beginning of our long-term cooperation with our valued customer Spengler, and we are proud of it.”

In other news, European trailer leasing firm, ICTS, will soon take delivery of its first zero emission refrigerated semi-trailer from Kässbohrer. It will be the first of its kind in Belgium to be fitted with a third-generation Thermo King AxlePower energy recovery system
The BPW e-Power trailer axle module recovers kinetic energy from the trailer and converts is into electricity through two generators. The electrical energy is stored in the battery pack, which in turn powers the refrigeration unit, achieving CO2-neutral trailer cooling.
This exclusive trailer technology will be made available to the public to view at ICTS headquarters next month.
