Some of our most recent deliveries has seen some of our most highly specialised and popular orders delivered to some of South East Queensland’s most successful businesses, including a Forklift Trailer for Howie Transport and a customised Quad Deck Widener for Shadforths Civil Contractors.

Fast efficient loading

Brisbane-based Howie Transport are forklift transport experts and their new Forklift Trailer from Drake Trailers joins their fleet of tilt trays, low loaders and drop decks.

The Drake Trailer Forklift Trailer’s independent suspension, 15 tonne carrying capacity and low load angle of 2.3 degrees make it one of the most popular choices in the specialist forklift transport market. Other standard features include:

  • Radio remote controlled 12,000lbs winch
  • 5 x Toolboxes fitted into the top deck
  • Running deck height of 500mm-550mm

The Howie Transport team’s new Drake Trailers Forklift Trailer was recently spotted doing a delivery of their own in our neighbourhood. Congratulations on the new purchase!

Another notable recent delivery was the Quad 4X4 Deck Widener for Shadforths Civil Contractors, one of South East Queensland’s largest family owned civil contracting companies, currently working on a huge range of projects including bulk earthworks and residential and industrial subdivisions. With one of the country’s largest fleets of construction, engineering and earthmoving equipment, Shadforths need to transport their heavy equipment safely and efficiently around the country – their new Quad Deck Widener will help them do exactly that.

Versatile top performer

A big attraction of the Drake Trailers Deck Widener is its ease-of-use in both built-up urban areas as well as the harsh Australian outback. Available in 3X4 and 4X4 tyre configurations with 35-50 tonne capacity and widening from 2.5m to 3.5m, the Deck Widener features:

  • 9hp diesel electric start hydraulic
  • Stainless steel hydraulic tubing
  • Manual hydraulic widening
  • LED lighting
  • 15” heavy duty Drake axles
  • Auto greasing system

We wish Shadforths the best of luck with all those subdivision projects and trust they enjoy using the latest edition to their impressive fleet.
