 The PL Series of Flatbed Trailers and Platform Trailers are designed and manufactured for professional use. These robust and durable trailers offer a versatile option for transporting varied goods and equipment especially when customised with options such as Ramps, Mesh Sides, Ladder Rack etc.

The optional galvanised drop sides (in pressed steel for strength and rigidity), give unrestricted access on 3 sides, making for quick and easy loading, even by forklift truck.

The taperline chassis of formed channel and box-section cross-members (c/w rope hooks) is of fully welded construction and hot-dip galvanised. The design for strength without excess weight,
combined with Avonride full beam "Softride suspension" axles and Bradley cast coupling all add up to safe towing & stability whether laden or unladen.

The PL series is available in sizes ranging from 8'4" x 5' up to 16' x 6'6", with gross weight capacities of 2000Kg, 2600Kg and 3500Kg. Larger sizes can be built to special order.
