Available in four models with tipping capacities ranging from 12 to 22 tonnes, the versatile trailers are designed for small earthmoving companies, hire companies, small quarries or property developers.

Giltrap Ag has long been associated with agricultural trailers, but the company has been manufacturing construction spec trailers in New Zealand for around seven years.

Now it is hoping to make an impact with the construction series in Australia, a market where trailer sales have not traditionally been strong.

"Many contractors have been asking us for tough trailers which they can use for more than one type of job," Giltrap Ag business development manager Warren Grose says. "Our construction range meets that demand perfectly."

The heavy-duty trailers are manufactured in New Zealand from 6mm Hardox 400 steel. The trailers attach securely to the truck by a 25-tonne rated swivel towing eye with anchor points on the draw bar for safety towing chains.

The rear doors of the trailers are hydraulically operated and have a wide opening clearance to allow for the free flow of material while tipping up to 55 degrees. The trailers’ draw bars have compression springs for suspension, which eliminates shock loads transferring across into the tow bar.

The trailers use large radial off-road tyres designed to minimise ground compaction, and perform well in slippery environments. This is especially important as they are not able to be registered for road use.

Oscillating braked axle equipment and a low centre of gravity make the trailers safe to use in steep, hilly areas.

The construction series also has ergonomic and safety features such as a hydraulic jack stand, safety brace for servicing beneath the bin and LED tail lights.

There are a number of optional extras that can increase the trailers’ versatility even further, including large capacity silage cages, transport tarps and lowering fronts for paddock use.
