Paisley-based Truck Plant Services has taken delivery of a new tri-axle step frame trailer from Andover Trailers.

The new trailer can carry access and drilling equipment, through to compact heavy forklifts and features a closely spaced cross member construction. It also includes Andover’s full-width hydraulic fold-forward ramp system that helps to minimise aerodynamic drag.

Other features include BPW axles, with rear-lifting axle capability, a high-power winch, strobes, safety lights, extra reversing lights, and LED lighting for safer working in dark conditions.The new trailer is expected to stay in operation for a minimum of 10 years, and clock up between 70,000 and 80,000km per year.

It joins five other Andover trailers in the firm’s fleet and replaces a similar step frame that the company has been running since 1999.

Kenny Blair, director of Truck Plant Services, said: “There’s nothing we move that this trailer can’t handle - and that’s exactly what we needed. Options like the closely spaced cross members increase the types of machine we can transport and therefore extend the working life of the trailer.”
