Telestep ideal for the transportation of long rotor blades
With the introduction of the Telestep, Nooteboom found the perfect response to the growing demand for transport solutions with a low load floor for ultra-long loads such as rotorblades or upper towersections.
Low load floor height
The Telestep is supplied with a triple extendible load floor with a height from under 120 cm, with 3, 4 or 5 axles and on 245/70 R 17,5 tyres. The turntable steering ensures excellent manoeuvrability. Despite the extreme length, the patented Nooteboom extension beam concept guarantees a perfectly flat load floor, in retracted as well as extended position, even on a loaded trailer.
The Nooteboom Telestep has been designed and constructed in such a way that loads (up to the permitted coupling weight) can be placed directly behind the gooseneck as well, i.e. not just on top of the gooseneck

By now several of these new combinations have been sold and will soon be ready to be delivered.
