Don-Bur uses new Trics to save on fuel

Don-Bur has launched its new tri-axle 13.6m lifting deck trailer demonstrator, which it claims can save as much as £6,500 per annum in fuel costs.

The new demonstrator incorporates Don-Burs’ ‘EcoStream’ aerodynamic sloping roof profile, with an area over the swan-neck that can be split with a 4.2m secondary deck.

The new demonstrator has the capacity to carry 41 pallets or 59 cages and claims to provide an extra tonne in payload weight potential due to the low trailer weight.

Don-Burs’ new ‘Trics’ (Trailer Reporting Interface & Control System) has also been included, and has a number of on-trailer sensors connected to a CPU and a reporting interface that can be accessed directly by a driver or fleet engineer, without the need for an additional laptop.

The new demonstrator also incorporates the Don-Bur “Reversing Guardian”.
