Leading trailer manufacturer, Freighter will display its rugged Outback model at the Brisbane Truck Show in May.
Freighter’s Outback trailers are built specifically for the harsh road conditions present in areas such as rural Queensland. The Outback particularly meets the needs of transport operators serving the mining industry with its ability to handle demanding requirements.
Speaking ahead of the show, Rod Cunningham, Freighter General Manager explains that operators need to ensure they have the appropriate trailer equipment before taking up rugged jobs in harsh conditions. The mining industry often involves carrying heavy loads off-road or over unsealed roads in poor condition. These factors can often combine to damage or break an ordinary trailer designed for predominantly highway use.
Freighter’s Outback Series has been purpose-designed for carrying heavy equipment on terrain of varying quality. These tough trailers have been designed in response to the feedback received from operators on their expectations from their trailer transport equipment.
New features in the Outback Series for increased durability include reinforced mainrails with more cross-members, heavy duty combing rails and heavy duty tow couplings. Freighter’s Outback trailers are available in T-Liner, skel or semi models. The Brisbane Show will feature a drop deck semi with rear ramps and small foldaway ramps from the lower to the upper deck.
Freighter can be found on stand number 30 at the Brisbane Truck Show 2013. The show runs from 16th to 19th May, at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
