The ATA ITC converter dolly: concept proved

The ATA Industry Technical Council commissioned a proof of concept rigid drawbar converter dolly following member discussions about the dynamic issues associated with hinged drawbars 

Members were particularly concerned about brake reactivity and tyre wear. 

With immense support from MaxiTRANS and ITC members Hendrickson, Alcoa Wheels, Bridgestone, JOST and WABCO, the new dolly has been undergoing road trials since May. 

Find out about the history of the project, the exciting performance of the dolly in combinations including type I and II road trains, ABB quads and BAB quads, as well as the changes that have been made to the design as a result of feedback from the trial operators.
