NEW 14t on Euro 6 Chassis for Eagle Platforms

This is the first 14t beavertail we have built on a Euro 6 chassis. Built for Eagle Platforms Ltd, this build gave us the perfect opportunity to identify the difference in payload capacity between a 12t and a 14t beavertail body. Although on paper it would look straightforward as being an additional 2t payload, however, the body needs extra strength and the chassis is a little heavier too.

The average payload for a 12t beavertail body is 6.5t, this body came in at 8.1t payload, a difference of 1.6 tonne for only a small additional charge on the body.

Service from the “top drawer”

A company who makes doing business less stressful. They provide the ability to adapt to specific requirements for the body of each vehicle, even to the point of (a minor detail) moving a number plate bracket to accommodate our signage on the rear of the deck.

Delivery schedules and customer support were spot on through-out the process.

We would not hesitate to use them again and will be placing another order with Shawtrack in the coming weeks.
