A fifth wheel tractor is a more advanced vehicle compared to the articulated types of vehicles. Such vehicles are distinguished by high maneuverability, high load capacity, and convenient transportation of long loads. Moreover, the tractor is easy to replace in case of breakdown, and the load is not transferred to another vehicle. Trailers A trailer is a vehicle that has no engine of its own. It is moved with the equipment, i.e. it forms a "road train". The trailer is not based on a tractor, like a semi-trailer, but on its wheel axles. The trailer is used for transportation of various cargo types. Depending on their purpose, trailers are divided into: flatbed; tipper trailers; tilt-covered; refrigerated; isothermal; other types of trailers. Often the trailer is used as a supplement to a semi-trailer when it is necessary to transport a large volume of cargo in a road train. In this case, the trailer is connected to the semi-trailer.
