TRAILER EQUIPMENT of Doncaster has been appointed sole British agent for the full range of air suspension units from Weweller of Apeldoorn, Holland.
These will be available for all types of trailers and rigid vehicle from 8.1 to 36.6 tonnes (8 to 36 tons).
One of the first such units to be fitted in Britain was on show at RAF Hendon on May 8 on Carrymaster's tri-axle 12.2m (40 ft) demonstration trailer.
The Weweller system can be custom-built to suit any vehicle and type of axle, providing the distance between the axle centre-line and the bottom of the chassis is between 250 and 740mm (9.8 and 29.1in).
All units are despatched preassembled on strips which are welded to the chassis, eliminating the need for a suspension subframe. Weweller options for all models in the range include a pivotless axle-lift on the leading axle, manual level control, stabilizers and a steel travel-limiting cable.
Using the trailer's existing axle and provided that the chassis top is clear, conversion takes around 20 hours.
Trailer Equipment converts trailers itself, has five fitting agents and is to appoint more soon.
