The difference between semi-trailer and full trailer


The difference between semi-trailer and full trailer has different traction modes, different structures and different performances.

The specific differences are as follows:

1. Different traction methods: The difference between semi-trailer and full trailer is that the traction methods of the two models are different. The load of the full trailer is entirely borne by itself and is connected to the tractor through a hook. The tractor does not need to bear the load of the trailer, but only serves to provide traction. The semi-trailer is supported by the tractor. In addition to providing power, it also needs to bear the load of the trailer.

2. Different structures: the full trailer stands upright on its own tires, and the semi-trailer stands upright on the front legs. Full trailers have front wheels, semi-trailers have no front wheels, full trailers have two axles, and semi-trailers have one axle.

3. Different performance: the stability of the whole trailer at high speed is relatively poor, and the emergency braking ability is relatively poor. On the contrary, the high-speed stability and emergency braking ability of the semi-trailer are relatively good.


A semi-trailer is a trailer with the axles placed behind the center of gravity of the vehicle (when the vehicle is evenly loaded) and equipped with a hitch that transmits horizontal and vertical forces to the tractor. Semi-trailers are generally three-axle semi-trailers, and their types are divided into eleven-meter silo semi-trailers, thirteen-meter silo, low-plate semi-trailers and many other types. It is a heavy transport vehicle connected with the semi-trailer head through the traction pin.
