• This unusual mini-artic is based on a standard rigid Mercedes 1114 which was reconstructed for Yorkshire Pine Products by Wheelbase Engineering of Rishton, Lancs.
Instead of a 12m trailer, the tractor draws a purpose-built 8.2m trailer which the company says helps easy access into customer premises. The braking system has been re-worked using the original air reservoirs and a two-line braking system. A fifth-wheel and lead-on ramps are also incorporated.
The Thirsk-based pine company is now planning to acquire another rigid Mercedes 1114 reconstructed by Wheelbase, with two custom-built trailers.
