Recent Deliveries January 2018

Welcome back to another year of stellar trailer deliveries from Drake Trailers. As many of our loyal readers know, we love to highlight some of the recent deliveries from the month.

Everyone at The Drake Group is basking in the New Year glow and hard at work on some new trailers which we are excited to share with you in the coming weeks. So, for this month’s instalment of recent deliveries, we thought we’d feature one of our last trailer builds from 2017, which rolled off the lot in the final days of the year.

The 4X8 Swingwing designed and manufactured for Divall’s Earthmoving & Bulk Haulage was a great way to finish off a busy year at The Drake Group. This trailer has become a feature on our blog as of late, with many of our customers keen to invest in a robust, durable trailer that ensures their oversize freight and heavy equipment arrives safely at every destination.

Divall’s Earthmoving & Bulk Haulage, which incorporates Goldburn Sand & Soil and Southern Tablelands Bitumen, operates out of Goldburn, NSW, and specialises in general earthworks and earthmoving, crushing and quarrying, operations roadworks, bulk haulage, demolition, subdivisions, plant and operator hire and road stabilisation. As Divall’s business continues to thrive, it was time they gifted themselves an early Christmas present to get the New Year off to a strong start. Although it was joked about on our Facebook post that the team bought so much new equipment, they had to get a new float just to carry it all.

The new Swingwing trailer, built for Divall’s Earthmoving & Bulk Haulage features:

  • 65 to 120-tonne capacity
  • Built with Australian, Japanese and Swedish high tensile steel
  • Hydraulic controlled ramps
  • Drop Legs
  • Stainless steel hydraulic tubing
  • Two horizontal spare tyre carriers
  • Air operated lock pins are fitted to the front links and back bumper to set widths
  • Hydraulic widening from 2.5 metres to 4.27 metres 
  • Hydraulic tank with hydraulic controls
  • Built-in beaver tails for improved loading
  • Tie down points which are built into the trailer deck, frame and gooseneck
  • Telescopic ramp props
  • The Swingwing is available in 3X8, 4X8 and 5X8 tyre configurations

A big thank you goes out to Divall’s Earthmoving & Bulk Haulage for their ongoing support. We hope your new float is just one of many Drake Trailers to help your business keep moving forward.

The Drake Group look forward to delivering more Australian-made transportation trailers to our fantastic customers in 2018. Keep an eye out for some special builds and designs of all shapes and sizes from all the Drake Group brands.  And if the time to update your transportation gear is now, contact The Drake Group today to discuss your trailer needs.
