ESTA's SPMT best practice guide

Cover ESTA BPG SPMTESTA’s long-awaited best practice guide for the use of SPMTs is due to be published in Munich this April, during the organisation’s meeting at Bauma.

 

The new guidelines will help address the problem of trailers tipping over, which has happened on some occasions even though then operating rules and stability calculations have been precisely followed.

 

Clients had asked what the industry was going to do about the problem and in response, ESTA created a working group that included representatives from several of our leading members, plus manufacturers and clients.
