The Mine Site transporter experience

Mine Site transporter

Mines need to get the maximum productivity from their dozers, drills and other onsite equipment and that means being able to transport this over-size equipment around large-scale mine sites easily, safely and efficiently. That’s why mine owners, including BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto, Peabody and BMA are choosing a Drake Trailers Mine Site trailer for their mining operations across South East Asia, Africa, PNG and Australia.

Customised design to perform in the toughest environments

Each heavy-duty minesite 100-550t trailer is custom engineered to meet the unique operating environment of each mine site with the heavy equipment trailers coming in a range of capacities, capable of safely transporting loads from 120t up to 550t.
