Wow. Looking back, March was insanely busy with lots of different projects including tippers, trays, and trailer combos. One of our highlights was when our existing clients, Otway Civil asked us to build a brand new state-of-the-art 3 axle dog trailer for their HINO tipper.
Working with Otway Civil
We had previously worked with Otway civil to build a tipper body for one of their HINOs in 2021. So when they came back and asked us to build a new trailer to match, we were thrilled. We spent an extended amount of time planning and designing this tipper and trailer combo so that we could build the body to their exact requirements and specifications. In the long run, this means that the tipper and trailer will be as productive and efficient as possible.
Building the tipper and 3 axle dog trailer
Originally, we had built and fabricated a brand new tipper body from wear resistant Hardox steel. The tipper featured a two-way swinging tailgate, electric tarp, additional LED lights, spray suppressant, and a pintle hook towing assembly to easily connect to the trailer.
After the planning process we built a brand new trailer using Hardox steel. The new trailer features a low profile chassis, which allowed us to squeeze an extra 100mm of height into the body. We added York air bag suspension, drum brakes with EBS, an electric tarp, polished JOST alloy rims, and a pintle eye to connect to the towing assembly on the tipper truck. The trailer was also fitted with a two-way swinging tailgate, LED light strips, and spray suppressant to match the tipper body.
The end result is a perfectly matching, and built to last tipper and 3 axle trailer combo, which will serve Otway Civil well in the long term!
