Self Steer - BPW's unique patented selfsteering axle

BPW's Unique Patented Self Steer Axle

The unique and simple steering components enable automatic control, dependant on the load being carried. An important feature is the self-locking facility when reversing. Unlike other systems, as soon as the trailer begins to move backwards, the steer mechanism is locked in the straight-ahead position.
