Good feedback for new Duncan Agmech trailers

Written by 

Duncan Ag has launched a range of robust transport tip trailers just in time for the new season.

The South Canterbury machinery specialist says the trailers are already attracting good feedback.

Designed for silage and/or grain, the Duncan Agmech trailer range features three size options. General manager Craig McIsaac says they also have the solid build quality and functional design that has long been associated with the company's name. He says the trailers have an ideal fit with anyone looking for tough, well-spec'ed equipment to make silage and grain handling easier and more efficient this season.

The trailers are available with a 10 tonne, 12 tonne and 16 tonne capacity.

All three options feature braked 90 mm tandem axles, eight stud on the 10 and 12 t trailers and 10 stud on the 16 t trailer.

Tyres are commercial road rated, 400 x 15.5 on the 10 t trailers and 500 x 22.5 on the 12 t and 550 x 22.5 on the 16 t trailers.

Quick tipping multi stage twin rams ensure fast load turnaround; a sprung drawbar is optional and the top hinged rear door offers mechanical or hydraulic release options with grain chute.

Floors are flat and 5 mm thick with fully welded, ribbed, bolt on sides which are 3 mm thick. Chassis dimensions are 200 x 100 x 8 mm. Optional spreader chains, a jack stand and LED lights complete the package.

McIsaac says farmers and contractors have already shown interest in the new trailers, which complement the existing Duncan Agmech offering.

"There's a gap in the market for this type of trailer, and we're happy to be able to make some new choices available."
