SlurryKat develops range of low loader trailers

Northern Irish maker SlurryKat has launched two  tractor-drawn low loader trailers.

The range initially includes 16t and 24t set-ups, but other sizes can be ordered to suit customer requirements for excavator transport or bale handling.

High tensile steel forms the chassis, cross members and side supports, while tread plating is used on the beaver tail and ramps for extra grip when loading equipment.

All the axles used are built to high-speed specification with spring suspension, including the drawbar to reduce the shock loading on the tractor’s tow hook.

LED road lights and air/hydraulic brakes are also part of the package, along with a front headboard and toolbox.

The 16t tandem axle model comes with an 18ft (5.5m) flat deck and 5ft (1.5m) beaver tail, while the 24t tri-axle is kitted out with a 21ft (6.4m) floor and the same 5ft beaver tail.
