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.
