Box Liner eLTU40/45 (Universal 40/45')


Setting new standards.

With the new Box Liner eLTU 40 Light Traction, Krone revolutionises the chassis market and offers a unique alternative to a chassis with middle extension, which until now was often ordered by transport companies that put emphasis on an improved fifth-wheel load when transporting 20‘ containers flush with the rear.

The highlight of the new Box Liner is its unique and patented traction rear, which customers have come to trust and rely on from the eLTU 70. Among other things, this offers a new position for 20' containers flush at the rear. Compared to all other chassis, the rear-flush container of the new Krone Box Liner is positioned closer to the front and the distance from the middle of the rear locking mechanism to the middle of the rearmost axle is only 565 mm. This significantly increases the fifth wheel load, providing better traction and greater driving safety.

The Box Liner eLTU45 differs from the eLTU40 due to its additional front extension for 45' containers with a long tunnel. With a B dimension of 12,000/12,150 mm, a special permit is not required.

45' containers with a short tunnel cannot be transported!
