SDC Trailers and Moffett have collaborated to produce an innovative Urban Trailer featuring a fully adjustable design, which will allow the customer to fit any Moffett style forklift. The 10.6m curtain-side trailer is EN 12642 XL spec, with a rear steer axle to assist manoeuvring in urban areas. Designed for 33 tonne operation, SDC has incorporated multi-deck rings to run in conjunction with an easy access strapping system for load restraint. There is also additional storage provided with two toolboxes fitted to the sideguards for easy access.
Michael O’Reilly, Product Manager at Hiab, said, “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. 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 Sept 2017 National Ploughing Championships in Offaly, the new Moffett urban trailer will be utilised 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 on their new E Series Range Electric Truck Mounted Forklift.
Enda Cushnahan, CEO of SDC Trailers said, “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. 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.”
SDC’s urban trailer range offers a number of economic, operational and environmental advantages with under slung tail-lifts available for uninterrupted rear end loading / unloading from docks and straightforward unloading in a multi stop store delivery situation. The manufacturer also offers a range of aerodynamic features on their bespoke trailer range such as front air deflectors, rear roof vortex generators and aerodynamic side skirts to help reduce fuel consumption.
