Recent Deliveries April 2018

It’s that time of the month readers! We take pride in each and every trailer we design and build at The Drake Group, so why not take the time to highlight some of our recent deliveries?   

You’ve seen these two companies here before, either taking a delivery or featured as our Customer in Focus. Doolan’s Heavy Haulage and Patlin Transport & Heavy Haulage have contracted The Drake Group for many years to build new floats as their businesses have grown. It’s been a pleasure to see these guys go from strength to strength and build trailers for them over our long relationship.

Over the last couple of years, Patlin Transport & Heavy Haulage has added a Quad Deck Widener and a 4X4 Quad Deck Widening Tilt Slide to their trailer family. This time around they took a delivery of a shiny new 4X4 Full Widener Rear Steer. Their objective like ours is to create a trailer that is of quality, reliability and durability that meets their customers’ needs.

The Full Widener Rear Steer features:

  • Radio remote steering for ultimate maneuverability
  • Heavy duty BPW axles
  • Electronic Braking System
  • 13m o/a deck length with 1 x 40’ container pins

A big thanks to Pat and his family and look forward to handing over their next trailer together so watch this space.

Triple decker threat for Doolan’s Heavy Haulage

Doolan's Heavy Haulage have their competitors green with envy with their new 4X4 Deck Widener and two O’Phee Trailers Tri Axle Flat Top Trailers. It was an awesome sight to see travelling down the highway.

It didn’t take long for the Deck Widener to be put to work, with a follow-up photo posted on our Facebook page and Facebook fans joking that it already needed a wash.

Their new hydraulic widening low loader is perfect for every type of terrain and features a fixed wheel track for optimal maneuverability around town and on-site. The plans are already in motion to produce their next trailer and perhaps even another 1/50 model by Drake Collectible model.

The Drake Group is also a family-owned business that understands the long-term benefits of providing quality trailer solutions. If you’re looking for the best custom-designed, Australian-made heavy haulage transport trailer, contact The Drake Group today.
