Making their debut at Northland Field Days was a new range of trailers from Dutch manufacturer Zocon.

The 8-tonne capacity trailers are imported by machinery seller Ag Attachments.

The trailers on display had a heavy-duty chassis, with hot-dipped galvanising throughout, which should result in a long service life.

The tandem bogie axle layout includes parabolic suspension for good ride quality, is shod with oversize 17 inch tyres and has hydraulic braking on all four wheels.

The package also includes a hydraulically controlled, auto rear door locking system and full lighting kit.

Optional extras include three-way tipping, oversize low profile tyres and full air braking systems.
