Multi-award winning MAMMUT manoeuvring system is now leading the way with weight calculator

Kötz. Strong yet sensitive, the AL-KO MAMMUT manoeuvring system enables smooth and precise manoeuvring of single-axle caravans up to a maximum weight of 2.5 tonnes or tandem axles up to 3 tonnes. Now AL-KO Vehicle Technology Group has added an indispensable feature to its proven MAMMUT manoeuvring system: an innovative system that can determine the weight within five minutes with a tolerance of less than five percent.

“With the further development of MAMMUT, we have created a globally unique concept that makes life much easier for caravan drivers,” says Dr Timo Schwickart, Senior Vice President Sales & Marketing: “There is usually plenty of storage space, which can tempt drivers to pack more than the weight limit allows. This means the caravan quickly becomes overloaded.” Many customers know the dangers of overloading: less driving stability, the vehicle swerving on bends, and a significantly increased braking distance. There will be problems with the insurance company in the event of an accident, and any traffic checks will lead to fines. Fines for overloading in Germany start from exactly five percent over the limit. He says: “We are now offering our customers the perfect tool to help them always stay on the safe side.” The intelligent manoeuvring system is controlled smartly and conveniently via a remote control with a digital weight display. MAMMUT Evolution will be available from the end of the first quarter of 2022.
