Specialist Trailer Hire, based in Leeds, have expanded their fleet with the addition of 6 sliding roof Profi Liner curtainsiders from Krone which, say the company, allow 2.7m side-loading clearance within a 4m overall height.
With a diverse range of trailers for hire, from waste ejectors, semi-low and flat extenders to double deckers, skells, urban flats and 4.4m curtainsiders, STH were looking for optimum loading flexibility.
“The more adaptable the trailer, the more uses our customers can put it to” comments STH Director Mark Liversidge. “These euroliner-type trailers can be loaded through the rear, sides and roof and using Krone’s Multi Lock side rave load securing, enable our customers to carry mixed loads in any configuration both safely and securely.”
Increased payload is also possible owing to the Profi Liners’ low – approx 6250kg – tare weight: Hitched to a 8,500kg, 6 wheel tractor and operating within 44,000kgs GVW, a payload of 29,250kgs can be achieved.
Formed in 1998 and with a diverse fleet of around 600 trailers and tractor units, STH puts its continued success down not least, to the provision of flexible and good quality equipment.
“These trailers are as good as a euro liner can get” says Mark, “and also, with code XL certification as standard, they are ideal for the increasingly stringent requirements of the European transport industry”.
