Lawrence David returns to CV Show with new products

Trailer manufacturer Lawrence David will return to the CV Show with a new builder’s merchant dropside rigid truck with Hiab crane and brick stack grapple on its stand.

The truck has a modular build, enabling equipment to be configured to different customer requirements, and interlocking aluminium flooring suitable for heavy payloads.The crane is mounted on an integral heavy-duty baseframe while the aluminium dropsides have integrated access steps with complete access to the load bay.

There is a 360-degree camera on the truck to eliminate blind spots and a pneumatically raised and lowered spray suppression system.

Lawrence David will also be displaying a new concept home delivery van body that features a bonded box body with better aerodynamics. There is also a rear camera for greater visibility in urban environments.

New innovations on display will include a modular hybrid second deck that includes a pre-galvanised steel frame with non-slip open-grid floor as well as yellow gratings that improve visibility and highlight a deck that is being loaded at height.

Lawrence David said the design means it is easier to replace individual damaged components.
