Recent Deliveries December 2016

Our final recent deliveries for 2016 are effectively a summary of some of our most versatile transport trailers, including the revolutionary Swingwing and our bestselling Quad Deck Widener.

  • 9hp Diesel electric start hydraulic
  • Stainless steel hydraulic tubing

TRN Group’s repeat order for a Swingwing

Civil engineering and haulage company, TRN Group is another one of our customers who share our commitment to customer service and quality high-spec equipment. With its head office located 60km south of Sydney, TRN Group specialises in equipment hire, earthmoving, quarrying and haulage. This isn’t the first time we’ve delivered a Swingwing for TRN Group.

But this recent delivery was for the largest of our Swingwing configurations, the 120 tonne capacity 5X8 Swingwing, featuring:

  • Stainless steel hydraulic tubing
  • Hydraulic controlled ramps
  • 5.5hp pull start hydraulic power pack
  • Drop legs
  • Rear push point
  • High tensile steel frame with level deck open at inner rear
  • Two horizontal spare tyre carriers

We trust this Swingwing gets the job done for our good friends and loyal customers at TRN Group. With the exception of some 21st century modifications, our current Swingwing range is based largely on the original – which revolutionised the Australian heavy haulage market back in 1969.
