UK trailer manufacturer, SDC Trailers, and materials handling specialist, Moffett – a division of Hiab – has collaborated to produce an innovative urban trailer featuring a fully adjustable design with full Moffett forklift compatibility.
According to SDC, the 10.6m curtainsider is EN 12642 XL spec, with a rear steer axle to assist manoeuvring in urban areas. Designed for 33 tonne operations, SDC has incorporated multi-deck rings to run in conjunction with an easy access strapping system for load restraint as well as additional storage with two toolboxes fitted to the sideguards for easy access.
“As the leading supplier of truck mounted forklifts, our new demonstration trailer aims to further increase the efficiency, convenience and ease of unloading for our customers,” said Hiab Product Manager, Michael O’Reilly. “This is a perfect partnership with Moffett and SDC, and together we will demonstrate the latest technologies in trailer design and truck-mounted forklift design, to give our shared customers the perfect delivery system for their goods.”
Following its debut at the September 2017 National Ploughing Championships in Offaly, the new Moffett urban trailer will be used as a demonstration unit at various exhibitions within the UK and Ireland to showcase how it can be adapted to suit the full Moffett range. Featuring distinctive livery portraying a Moffett forklift in operation, the show trailer will also be available for customer trials.
“We have enjoyed a fantastic working relationship with Moffett for many years and are delighted to be partnering with them on the new concept urban trailer,” said SDC Trailers CEO, Enda Cushnahan. “SDC are committed to ensuring we provide the very best service to our customers and are constantly striving to develop new solutions that will enhance the efficiency of our customer operations.”
