Drake Quad AG Widener trailer
Drake has brought out a versatile widener trailer for the ag industry
The Drake Trailers Quad AG Widener trailer, which is capable of carrying 50-tonne payloads, is set to be launched onto the Australian market.
Specially designed for agricultural work, and with a variable width of 2.5 to 4.5m, the trailer utilises Drake Trailers hi-tensile beams and fabricated cross members. “This Drake 4.5m Ag Widener compliments our range perfectly, and our recent acquisition of O’Phee Trailers means we can offer agricultural and construction equipment across the country,” Drake Trailers says.
“When we were called on to design something specific for the agricultural industry, we were only too happy to accept the opportunity.”
The trailer features the Drake hydraulic suspension system, which optimises stability, according to the company. Auxiliary and optional equipment includes: multiple suspension options; fully remote control functions; drop-in deck sections; various tyre sizes (17.5-inch, 19.5-inch, 20-inch); double-hung ramps of various lengths and widths; low profile or hydraulic raise/lower gooseneck; self-tracking rear axles; bi-fold ramps; and a 30,000lb winch.
“Backing up the performance is a reliable and proven support system and readily available spare parts, meaning no Drake system is ever out of commission for too long,” the company says.
“Drake Trailers are always adapting to Australia’s ever-changing market, as we have done for over 50 years.”
Drake manufactures widening and fixed-width trailers for heavy haulage, mining and agricultural equipment transport, along with steerable modular trailers and telescopic trailers.
