The North Yorkshire-based farmer J.Charlton & Sons has had a Ktwo trailer retrofitted with HARSH sheets.

While HARSH predominantly equips road haulage fleets, its solutions are also applicable for agricultural applications too. The new ‘roll n’ go’ sheet system is made with 900gsm PVC to offer the operator weather protection, load security and sheet durability. The sheet can be operated manually from the ground from a rear winding handle or from the side, pulling the sheet closed with the centre security strap. For this project, HARSH designed and manufactured a custom lightweight full length top frame with curved support domes at each end of the body.

Harry Charlton said: “We wanted a sheeting solution that would be practical, reliable, easy to operate and provide complete sealing for the payload. For a one-off requirement such as this, there’s a big advantage if the whole system can all be designed, built and installed as a single item at a single site.

“The obvious choice for this was HARSH, not least for their ever-growing reputation in the sheeting business, but also because they are more than happy to provide individual, bespoke solutions for customers like ourselves.”

Mark Britton, who heads up the sheeting and tarpaulin business for HARSH said: “we are delighted to have been able to provide Harry with exactly the sheeting system his company needed for their new trailer. Whether for rigid tippers, full size semi-trailers, farm trailers or other bespoke products, HARSH now has the widest range of sheeting solutions available in the UK. Design, manufacture and fitting can all be done here at our dedicated workshop at Full Sutton - it’s a complete service, from start to finish.”

Ktwo is a UK-based farm machinery manufacturer. J.Charlton & Sons’ Ktwo trailer has a twin-axle design, steel body and hydraulic tailgate. The trailer has a payload capacity of up to 13-tonnes and is set to be put to work off-road on harvesting wheat and barley as well as other farming requirements.
