Teichmann Plant Hire, a leading earth moving equipment provider for Southern and Central Africa, has taken delivery of a Martin Trailer Company custom-made, detachable RGN 55 and HD 50 trailer be used in Southern and Central Africa for abnormal machinery loads including excavators and bulldozers.
Managing director of Martin Trailers, Patrick Gore, says he’s particularly proud to have been selected for the build as Teichmann has historically only used folding gooseneck trailers.
“With economic conditions as strained as they are in Southern Africa, it’s always refreshing to see a large business innovating to keep abreast of their client’s specific requirements. Teichmann listed precise specifications for their trailer including taking the unit cross-border and complying with the height and payload stipulations in Southern Africa as well as Central Africa where the trailer will be operated,” says Gore.
The new detachable RGN 55 and HD 50 trailer boasts a higher payload and lower tare than competitor units. Speaking of the new purchase, both Sean Devine – logistics manager and Brett Nicolay – group plant manager say they looked at various manufacturers in the market for the trailer. “Based on Martin Trailers experience and design, we were comfortable to place our trust in them.”
