Drake Trailers' versatile tilt slide transport

When it comes to heavy haulage trailers, versatility is always a priority. Being able to transport a wide variety of loads increases the number of jobs you can undertake, enhancing the return you receive on your initial investment.

To add extra adaptability to your haulage vehicles, the Drake Group are proud to showcase their innovative, adaptable deck widening tilt slide trailer. Available in a variety of widths (we can customise the width to suit your requirements), the trailer is extendable to over 20 metres and can carry up to 40 tonnes. Ideal as a trailer recovery aid or to transport wide or heavy loads, the fully mechanised tilt slide mechanism ensures loading and unloading are safe and straightforward.

Patlin Transport use our tilt slide trailer

Patlin Transport - the well-known Victorian, heavy haulage company - have started to use Drake Trailers' unique quad-axle tilt slide to enhance the services they offer clients.

Patlin Transport specialises in cost effective transport solutions for the heavy machinery, mining, agricultural, wharf and civil construction markets.  Their modern fleet of prime movers, extensive range of Heavy Haulage and over dimensional trailers including the new tilt slideaddition, crane trucks, tilt trays and escort vehicles are complaint Australia wide.

Designed to carry vehicles and machinery that wouldn't fit onto a standard deck, the trailer incorporates a range of safety features (including rope rails and plenty of tie-down points) to minimise the risk of slippage or shifting during transit. Because the trailer is self-loading, there's no need for a crane - an enormous advantage when it comes to vehicle recovery work or loading in remote situations where additional plant isn't readily available.

Remote operation of the tilt slide trailer makes life easier

The winches and hydraulics are all remotely radio operated. This not only enhances safety (operatives can stand well clear of the load whilst it's being manoeuvred), it also allows accurate movement and ensures rapid, effective braking if required. Because the process is fully automated, it's user-friendly and means that loading and unloading can be easily and safely undertaken in a cost-effective way by a relatively small team by Patlin Transport.
