Roll On/Off drawbar trailers

Similarly to all other drawbar trailers, a Roll On/Off drawbar trailer is always bespoke to the application as unlike with articulation there is no practical standard that accommodates the majority of operator’s requirements.

In many respects a Roll On/Off drawbar trailer can be viewed as a rigid with no engine or cab, as it is usually required to carry the same product as the truck that pulls it, whilst maintaining the flexibility of operation gained from using a rigid vehicle in a solo condition. The waste industry typifies this statement as it is unlike any other, due it collectively handling hundreds of thousands of standard bins, which are capable of being carried on the truck or trailer.

Waste contractors are one of the biggest user groups of drawbar trailers with numerous trailer types to accommodate different styles of bin handler and towing hitch positions. Albeit the basic load is similar, most operators have their own opinion as to what specification will best suit their application; therefore it is not unusual to see considerable differences between their trailers depending on the types and weights of product being handled.
