Robert Walker Haulage, the specialist transporter of mechanical handling equipment, has ordered four new curtainsider step frame trailers from Cartwright.
The company delivers equipment for all the major fork lift manufacturers.
The trailers have a number of special features. At the back of the trailers, the rear part opens out to accommodate fork lift trucks up to 8 feet wide. The beaver tail at the rear slopes down gradually and attached is a double folding hydraulic double ramp designed to achieve a 6.5 degree maximum loading. A heavy duty winch in the bulkhead is included at the front as occasionally the machinery being loaded cannot power itself, for example if broken down.
A sliding roof facilitates the loading of tall masted fork lift trucks. The company can move any type of mechanical handling equipment up to 25 tonnes.
The trailer is meshed throughout and decking is included.
