Drake Trailers

Recent Deliveries February 2018

As much as we love seeing photos of Drake and O'Phee trailers out on the road and doing their thing on-site, there’s a certain affinity we have for seeing our most recent deliveries roll out of the manufacturing facility for the first time. Look at some of our latest efforts and you will see why.

Extendable BoXLoader Multiloader for Ian Parr Transport

Firstly, O’Phee Trailers are proudly displaying the Extendable BoXLoader, which was commissioned by Ian Parr Transport. This Emerald green beauty is the first of its kind of rO'Phee Trailers. Being an extendable, it is capable of handling 40ft, 45ft and 48ft containers. The side loader cranes are fully radio remote controlled and can lift 35 tonnes of cargo effortlessly. 

Side loaders such as the BoXLoader allow for more versatility and convenience where space is tight and have proven their worth since their introduction in 2011. With a focus on safety, this trailer is fitted with disc brakes which offer excellent stopping performance, as do the onboard sensors that monitor aspects of crane arm position and any container movement. These elements reduce risk factors during day-to-day operation. 

Ian Parr Transport operates out of Cloncurry, just near Mount Isa, so we know this trailer will see some serious mileage over the coming years, backed up by O’Phee’s dedication to reliability and customer service.
