Get to know the BE-Combi's 3500PLUS system

3500PLUS System: more cargo with a BE driving license

The 3500PLUS System has been developed to double the maximum gross weight of a light commercial vehicle from 3,500 to 7,000 kilos. The advantage of the system is more payload and loading capacity. You can drive it with a BE driver license.

3500PLUS SYSTEM has:

  • With a wide variety of different bodies

  • Payload capacities from 2,500 to 3,000 kilograms

  • Great flexibility due to compact dimensions

  • Drives like a standard light commercial vehicle

  • Easy to rebuilt (on identical vehicle brand)

  • Suitable for BE driving license

  • Up to five times more loading capacity

  • The answer to the driver shortage

The 3500PLUS System is in fact a short-coupled tractor-trailer combination with the look and handling of a standard light commercial vehicle.

Load capacity up to 3,000 kilos

Depending on the choice and dimensions of the body, the 3.500PLUS System offers you a payload up to 2.500 - 3.000 kilos. Depending on the wheelbase of the vehicle, a body length up to 5.500 mm. is possible. BE-Combi is brand independent and the system can be built on most of the rear wheel drive light commercial vehicles.

How it works

The vehicle itself is converted into a tractor unit with a sub-frame, fifth wheel, air supply and an intelligent brake system, converting the hydraulic brake pressure into air pressure. The 3500PLUS trailer is tailor made for the vehicle of choice and connects to the vehicle as a normal Tractor-trailer combination. The body is built on the trailer and the BE-Combination is ready to go. The concept consists of a 3,500 kilo vehicle and a 3,500 kilo trailer. Together a gross combination weight (GCW) of 7,000 kilos in total.

Since rules and regulations may vary per country, please check with the local authorities for detailed information.
