HOW DO I CHARGE MY CAR?
A few words about a cleanly loaded vehicle. Not only to avoid unpleasant buses, also to protect you and other road users, a properly loaded vehicle is important. Here are some things to keep in mind when loading long bars.
The load is listed in the vehicle card and must not be exceeded. If you have a heavy load, adjust the air pressure to the recommended values beforehand.
Loaded goods that extend 1m over the body length must be marked with a signal body (eg Trio-Pan, Triangle striped in orange and white). However, it is generally the rule that the overhang from the rear axle of the vehicle, to the end of the load max. 5m may be. The front overhang may be max. From the center of the steering wheel to the end of the load. 3m.
For more than 3 poles it is recommended to tie the poles together in several places first. Once in the back third and in the front third. Note that the poles nest nicely and there are no voids between them. Each bar must be fixed and must not be able to come out of a gap. Check whether you have adhered to the excess length for your vehicle. Now fix the bars in the middle, on the rear and front straps with separate tensioning sets. Mark the overhang with a signal body.
If the goods are loaded correctly, the journey should not be greatly impaired. The rods always go with and do not swing, like a trailer. Drive carefully and pay attention to cyclists, especially at low vehicle height!
Good and safe ride!
