Drake Trailers

Recent Deliveries September 2016

We’re always excited to see happy clients take delivery of one of our latest trailers, and especially so when we get to see them paired with a powerful and impressive truck.

This is why we were thrilled when Gradco took delivery of their new Drake-built Full Widener Rear Steer in a limited edition Kenworth Legend 950. One look at the pictures and it’s easy to see that they make a winning combination.

The Full Widener Rear Steer is fitted with BPW Self tracking rear axles combined with radio remote controlled steering, for improved tyre life and manoeuvrability. This key feature makes it the perfect choice for its Tasmanian based owner.

Gradco has been a leader in the mining, construction and heavy haulage industries and has been around for over 50 years, starting in 1955 as Gradall Constructions. We’re proud to have yet again another Drake Trailer in their fleet.

Drake Trailers continue to work with their customers to develop innovative designs. No further proof is needed than the unique trailer steerable trailers designed and developed for Lake Eildon Marina Services.

The trailer had a very special requirement: safely carry houseboats across land and into water.

To make this happen, a specially-designed trailer was designed and manufactured in Drake Trailers' Brisbane factory. The trailer widens, and extends based on the size and length of the houseboat, Auto steering axles are used to manoeuvre boats up to 60t through the mountainous hill of Lake Eildon. Radio Remote control is fitted for precise manual steering control via hydraulic rams that control each axle. The trailer is designed to be submerged entirely under the fresh water for loading out the boats.

Lake Eildon Marina Services chose Drake Trailers because of their experience and renowned commitment to quality and reliability. We're very happy to work with the team at Lake Eildon Marina Services in this exciting industry.
