Recent Deliveries April 2016

It’s been a busy month at Drake Trailers and just two of the highlights that stand out among the flurry of our recent deliveries this month include a 4X4 Deck Widener delivered to Fulton Hogan and a 3X4 Drop deck Lowboy Trailer that heads over the Nullarbor to join Higgs Haulage’s growing fleet of Drake Trailers. 

Fulton Hogan

The 4X4 Deck Widener is the perfect choice for Fulton Hogan due to its flexibility across a wide range of load types such as steel drum rollers, asphalt pavers and similar construction materials and equipment. The manoeuvrability of the 4X4 Deck Widener trailer is also a big benefit when negotiating the tight angles and restricted access areas that are part and parcel of new sub divisions. We also loaded up the trailer with extras for Higgs Haulage that enhances operator safety and making working at night easier.

 The 4X4 Deck Widener includes:   

  • 11850mm Level Deck
  • Extra-long bi-fold ramps
  • 30,000lb winch
  • Drake hydraulic suspension & BPW rear self-tracking axles
  • Landing strip lights to underside of deck
