Farmers Weekly Chooses Fruehauf as ‘Editor’s Pick’
Farmers Weekly editor, David Cousins, has chosen our trailers as one of the pieces of kit to watch from Cereals 2015, amongst the likes of drills and mowers.
It may surprise some people to find us at a farmers show, but in fact of the 115 or so trailers we make a month, half of whom are involved in the farming industry.
Big farms can run up haulage bills of £30,000, so it can makes good financial sense to run your own truck (and maybe haul your neighbour’s crops too). In fact more than 50% of ag haulage companies were started by farmers.
The Smooth Sider range benefits from the new Performance Chassis and 30mm standard plank sides. There is also a heavy duty step frame version with 50mm plank sides and a thicker section.
Thicker crossmembers over the kingpin create a flatter floor, a top rail shaped to avoid loading damage and an extended near sub-frame increasing strength, make the Performance Smooth Sider the only viable alternative to the Performance bathtub.
