Bicester-based Kel-Berg launched its T109 horizontal discharge belt trailer in the UK last year, following extensive trials in Denmark.

The trailer, which the dealer said offers greater stability and safety on uneven sites than traditional tipper trailers, is designed for aggregate and asphalt work and targeted at the construction, quarrying and aggregates sectors. Kel-Berg has a new T109 belt trailer and DAF CF tractor unit supplied by dealer HTC Oxford for sale as a complete combination.

Kel-Berg sales specialist Daniel Parker said: “It is a horizontal belt discharge trailer, and because it is non-tipping, this reduces the risk of it falling sideways during unloading to next to impossible. It has a quicker unloading time than a moving-floor trailer - it can unload fully in 2 minutes 40 seconds - and the belt will last longer than a moving-floor.”

The T109 features a high-tensile lightweight steel chassis, disc brakes, Dura-Bright wheels, camera systems, LED lights, a remote operated sheet, and a remote-operated high-strength rubber belt. Its outer sloping side walls are covered by stainless steel panels, while the inside of the body is constructed from Hardox wear plates.

The belt is driven via a hydraulic motor and gearbox that requires the towing vehicle to be fitted with a hydraulic PTO pump and tank. The trailer, which has a capacity of 26m3, includes a two-year chassis warranty. Kel-Berg can also supply the combination in an operator’s livery and with different axle types.

Parker said: “This trailer has been on hire [as a demonstrator] with Alfred Hymas; Maen Karne Aggregates; PJ Haulage; Rory J Holbrook; Mark Mills Transport; and Gary Hollingworth Transport.” The Kel-Berg workshop manager visited the Alfred Hymas yard to brief staff on how to operate the trailer and achieve its maximum productivity.

The Harrogate-based operator described its overall performance as “very good” and having a “very quick discharge”. Parker added: “PJ Haulage, Rory J Holbrook, Mark Mills Transport and Gary Hollingworth have placed orders, after being extremely pleased with the demo.” PJ Haulage, based in Leicester, said: “We were impressed with the speed of the offload and how manoeuvrable the trailer was.”
