O’Phee Trailers strengthens the heavy haulage fleet of JMT Civil

Since their inception over 40 years ago, O’Phee Trailers has grown in strength. After joining The Drake Group in 2015 the heavy haulage trailer manufacturer has grown and capability across the board, proven by a continually growing roster of satisfied clients.

A great example of this is the latest delivery from O’Phee Trailers by New South Wales-based construction company, JMT Civil. This organisation has been providing their roster of clients with land clearing, heavy haulage, bulk haulage and bulk earthwork services for many years now and, with a staff of 20 and growing, it’s clear to see why there was a need to expand their haulage options through new trailers.

JMT Civil’s mantra is “Excellence is not an option, it is our standard” and so expectations were set high when O’Phee Trailers were tasked with delivering a new Drop Deck Widener for their fleet.

O’Phee’s solution

Of course, O’Phee Trailers were ready for the demanding and exciting challenge. The Rocklea, Queensland-based trailer manufacturer has built a solid reputation across the country for making a reliable range of trailers built for the harshest conditions Australian roads have to offer. The range includes Drop Decks, Flat Tops and Convertibles ready for any load, and custom-made solutions that are built for each client’s unique requirements and industries. By being able to meet each customer’s exact needs in every part of the design, manufacturing and service stages O’Phee Trailers has become synonymous with excellent performance, reliability and customer service.

The Drop Deck Widener chosen for the job was given a smart all-black paint job with an orange-trim finish, matching one provided to JMT Civil several years ago by sister company Drake Trailers. It sported a host of features including hydraulic suspension, radio remote rear steer functionality, a pair of bi-fold ramps that extend out over four metres and over 9,000-kilogram capacity remote-controlled hydraulic winch.

A great result

JMT Civil Managing Director Joel Michael Taylor has a hands-on approach to all aspects of his business and was on hand to pick up the new trailer directly from O’Phee Trailers’ manufacturing facility himself. Judging by the pictures posted on social media, he seemed very happy with the result and so was The Drake Group Business Development Manager Sam Drake. Joel Michael Taylor said online that he “can’t wait to get this fantastic trailer out and working hard” and neither can we.

Paired with a pearl-white Kenworth truck with a matching black and orange Daffy Duck decal, this combination is guaranteed to turn heads as it travels across the nation’s highways for many years.
