Diddy plant trailer added to Brian James line-up

A brace of handy plant trailers has been added to the extensive line-up offered by Daventry-based Brian James Trailers.

The Eco Plant is an entry-level beavertail unit designed for small and low-ground-clearance machinery such as mini diggers and scissor lifts. The smaller model features a bed of 2.3×1.1m and costs £1,949, while an extra £100 extends deck dimensions to 2.5×1.5m.

Features include raised sides and a punched steel tail panel to offer grip when loading. The beavertail design helps load low-bellied machinery that would usually be scuppered by the pivot point.

LED lights, a spare wheel, strapping anchors and a heavy-duty jockey wheel are included as standard, while extras extend to a digger bucket rest, manual winch and machine stop bar, plus Datatag security ID and tyre pressure monitoring.
