Potato & Root Trailers


From 10 Tonne to 14 Tonne. Hydraulic tipping trailer with body height of 1067mm designed for carrying potatoes and roots etc. (Longer and lower sides than Monocoque to reduce risk of crop damage.) 5mm floor, 3mm sides. Can be fitted with silage sides.

The Potato & Root trailers have longer, lower bodies than the Monocoque trailers in order to minimise crop damage.

A full width front window is fitted as standard. This is fabricated from a number of 12mm diameter round bars which run horizontally across the full width of the trailer front. This results in far less crop damage than a mesh window and is more practical than a perspex window which soon becomes dirty and scratched. A slide is also provided to block the window if the trailer is to be used with grain etc.

Hydraulic tailboards are commonly fitted as optional extras to the Potato & Root trailers.
