Hayton Coulthard has taken delivery of four new curtainsiders from Tiger Trailers, after being impressed with a seed trailer operating in its fleet since 2016.

The new 13.6m tri-axle straight frame trailers feature Tiger’s front aerofoil design, which works alongside the rear roof scoop and is designed to improve aerodynamics and lower fuel consumption.

Underrun lights of the trailers have been positioned on separate pressed steel outriggers for added protection.

The trailers include grab straps in recesses on the rear pillars to allow safe access into the trailers via the rear doors, without compromising on load space.

They join a fleet of 150 curtain-sided trailers and 120 tractor units - mainly Scanias - at the Twynholm-based operator. The new trailers will be on the road up to seven days a week, travelling nearly 200,000 miles a year.

Duncan Coulthard, MD at Hayton Coulthard, said: “We haul across Scotland and the UK for a wide range of sectors, from the building trade through to food, so we need our trailers to be flexible enough to meet the wide-ranging demands we place upon them.

“Our first Tiger-built trailer proved the build quality and suitability for our operation, so we know these new additions will match our expectations. The level of detail and care Tiger shows towards its products made it an easy decision to come back for more, and we’ll hopefully be adding more Tigers to the fleet.”
