Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• To the trailer survey published in the February 5 issue should be added:— NEVILLE TRUCK EQUIPMENT

Neville Truck Equipment Ltd, Lindleys Lane, Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Notts.

This company builds tipping semi-trailers with standard body capacities ranging from 15 to 60 Cu yd. The units are made in three forms----Frame Tippers, with tipper bodies on trailer chassis; the Tandem Tip, in which the running gear is attached to the body and the' tipping is by the Villiers system: and the Tandem Dump, on which the running gear is carried on a short sub-frame having the tipping fulcrum mounted low down between the axles. When the body is tipped the actual pivot point of the action is between and below the axle centres, so providing a considerable reduction in the height of the c of g when the body is tipped.

Neville Truck manufactures its own running gear utilizing rubber as the suspension medium. The unit features rigid walking beams within which the axles are suspended by Metalastik sandwich rubber springs. Axle location is by rubber-bushed radius rods, and the whole unit is virtually maintenancefree.

From the trailer survey should be deleted Seaway Containers Ltd, Naker Street, Greenock; we have now been informed that the company has ceased trading and is being wound up.

To the tractive unit specifications tabulated in that issue should be added the Dennis Defiant. Relevant details are:— Dennis Defiant 24-ton gtvv; wheelbase, 9ft Gin; unladen wt, approx 9632Ib 13064kgl: engine, Perkins 6.354; output. 155bhp at 2600 rpm; max torque, 376 lb.ft at 1600 rpm; gearbox, 5-speed constant-mesh; rear axle, 2-speed spiral bevel: brakes, air pressure; tyres, 10.00-22.5 radial steel cord.
