Reigart Contracts Transport Manager Tom Reilly, comments; “We continually upgrade our fleet to ensure that we are constantly mobile and able to meet deadlines and the purchase of the Andover Trailers step frame is part of this investment.”

The specification also includes a 15,000 lb Comeup electric winch with remote control and a 24 volt power pack to run the hydraulics. Additional features include toolboxes fitted into the upper deck, hardwood floor and two-speed leg gear. The trailer is expected to stay on the Reigart Contracts fleet for 8 years and cover 800,000 km.
