Skip  Trailers

 

Tandem-Axle Single Skip Trailer;  Tri-Axle Single Skip Trailer; Tri-Axle Twin Skip Trailer

 We produce specialist TYPE-APPROVED drawbar Skip Trailers.

Skip trailers were traditionally built with a swan-neck in order to overcome the problem of the skip unit's rear stabilisers protruding further than the drawbar coupling, and hence fouling the drawbar during manouevring.

 Nowadays,  it is usual for  the skip units  to be  manufactured with stabilisers which do not cause this difficulty. In these cases a conventional straight-beam drawbar is able to be used. This also means that the drawbar can be retractable for loading the skip over the front of the trailer.

 We manufacture several layouts of skip trailer; the Tandem-Axle Single Skip SkipMate is usually employed for the carriage of one skip. The Tri-Axle Twin Skip SkipMate is usually adopted for the carriage of twin skips. Although  the Tri-Axle Single Skip SkipMate is also in demand for heavier loads
