UK plant moving specialist receives Andover equipment

UK-based Osmonds Transport & Planing has taken delivery of two new step frame trailers with beavertails from Andover Trailers.

Both trailers feature a new generation of box-section slide-out side extension, which Andover reported is stronger simpler to use, easier to clean and galvanised to ensure a long life in service.

Also new to the design is the installation of 10 tonne rated RUD swing-up lashing loops and M36 load securing points built into the load bed to accommodate 14 or 16 tonne screw-in RUD lashings.

Both trailers have been built with one-metre wide power toe ramps with sliding width adjustment and knife-edge toes. Disc brakes, Andover’s own safety-light system and robust 285/70 R 19.5 tyres are fitted, and the SFCL56 and SFCL73 step frames are equipped with three and four SAF axles respectively, with a rear-steering capability.

“You cannot beat the Andover Trailers build quality. Everything they produce is designed and manufactured to an incredibly high specification – quite frankly, we regard them as the strongest trailers on the market,” said Tom Osmond, Managing Director of Osmonds Transport & Planing.

“What’s more, you always receive that personal touch with Andover – it’s one of the reasons we keep coming back year after year.”
