SlurryKat: New range of low loader trailers developed

By WniF editors

Northern Ireland based SlurryKat has launched a new series of tractor-drawn low loaders.

There are currently two models in the range desined to take payloads of 16t and 24t, but other sizes can be made to suit customer requirements.

The trailers are suitable for a range of applications, such as excavator/wheeled loader transport, bale handling and potato box transport.

The trailer chassis are built using high-tensile full-length steel H beam sections that allow for better chassis performance when heavily loaded. Tread plating is used on the beaver tail and ramps for extra grip when loading expensive machinery and equipment.

High-tensile steel is also used in all the box section cross members and side supports that run along each side of the bed.

These are manufactured from laser-cut flat high-tensile steel rather than the conventional approach of channel section. This allows the track width of axles to be maximised and gives a lower set floor, lower centre of gravity and therefore more stability when towing.

The tandem-axle model can carry a 16t payload.

All the axles used are built to a high-speed specification with spring suspension. The drawbar is also fully sprung to soften the ride for the towing tractor and is fitted with a high-tensile towing ring.

In order to increase safety on the road, the trailers are fitted with LED road lighting systems and air/hydraulic brakes.

Each trailer is finished in two-pack, durable paint. A front headboard and a tool box are also fitted as standard.

The new models available include a 16t tandem-axle with an 18ft flat deck and a 5ft beaver tail, and a 24t tri-axle with 21ft loading deck and a 5ft beaver tail.
