A semi-trailer is a type of trailer that is aggregated with a specialized tractor unit via the tractor's coupling device ("saddle") by means of a coupling pin. The weight of the load is completely transferred to the supporting frame of the trailer, and then distributed between the semi-trailer's own wheels and the tractor wheels. The connection between the trailer and the tractor is used both to transmit this load and the traction force. The semi-trailer is not able to move without being connected to the tractor; to ensure its stability at this time, it is provided with folding or sliding racks. There are conventional truck and ballast. The name of the latter is due to the presence of an additional all-metal platform, which loads the ballast load for better traction with the road.
