Pronar launches 22t half-pipe dump trailer

Pronar has launched a half-pipe dump trailer for use in both agriculture and construction, that looks similar to units hauled around by artic lorries.

First previewed at last year’s Agritechnica show in Germany, the trailer recently broke cover at the Yorkshire Agricultural Machinery Show.

The T701HP has a 22t total weight (with optional greedy boards) this mean with a low kerb weight of just 5.5t it can take up to 16.5t in one go. This has been achieved by the half-pipe design, which Pronar says has reduced the kerb weight.

Standard 600/55/R26.5 tyres spread the bulk, while a two-channel hydraulic system gives a tipping time of only 30secs, requiring around 41 litres of oil.

A sprung drawbar is standard, and there is an optional hydraulic sprung version. The whole body is made of 6mm thick steel.

The 40kph-rated trailer needs a minimum of 125hp at the front and retails for £26,142 + VAT and delivery.
