SvTech Ltd, the specialist vehicle re-rating company, has unveiled its new Load Distribution Analysis (LDA) program for all users of motorhomes, horseboxes, vans and minibuses in an effort to improve vehicle safety. In an effort to promote greater awareness amongst road-users of the dangers of overloading, SvTech designed an application that allows an owner/operator to calculate their likely laden weight. This is calculated by the user entering the vehicle’s unladen weight and then adding their desired loads, e.g. Bike Rack, Awning, Horses, Water, Fuel, Passengers. The program then calculates the results, based on the data entered, to give a Load Distribution Analysis, and warning if the user has overloaded a particular axle or axles. The user will then know how much they are able to carry safely. SvTech can advise on any problems arising, as the company is able to increase the payload allowance on many makes and models. Please contact us if you are interested in uprating your horsebox.
