Rootcrop Trailer

Reduces crop damage

A low line trailer designed to facilitate damage-free root crop harvesting. The Rootcrop Trailer has a low side height of 3’9” and a long, tapered body to reduce crop damage. Designed and engineered to maximise efficiency, the trailer body is constructed using pressed steel and channel sections to optimise the strength to weight ratio, and the tipping pivot at the rear end prevents the tail end dropping.

Available in 13 to 18 tonne models with a range of options, you can customise the Rootcrop Trailer to meet your needs.

Key Benefits

  • Highly rated towing qualities. Our commercial mono leaf spring suspension system is designed specifically for agriculture to reduce body roll, giving you greater stability on hillsides and uneven terrain. The height adjustable sprung drawbar system provides active suspension with rebound control.
  • Faster tipping. Single six-stage vertical pushing tipping rams with a 55 degree tipping angle reduce tipping times and prevent unnecessary strain on the trailer body.
  • Low unladen weight for maximum efficiency. Our trailers are constructed using pressed steel and channel sections to optimise the strength to weight ratio, enabling you to deliver full payloads with a low unladen weight.
