Axle Haulage order three 7.5t beavertails

Axle Haulage operate a modern range of haulage vehicles throughout the United Kingdom, including light haulage, heavy haulage, artic tractor units and trailers. Axle Haulage’s requirements were to design and build three beavertail bodies that could be used to transport concrete pumps. With the chassis weighing almost three tonnes on the 7.5t trucks, the brief was to achieve minimum payload of 3.2 tonne.

To provide the user with the best loading experience we designed a body with a shallow loading angle and included a winch and tapered subframe to assist loading. To improve the loading angle we swapped our typical 2.2m ramps for 3m ramps. Having seen the first of the three 7.5t beavertails they are extremely happy with the body and we are already discussing future projects.

We have recently commissioned Shawtrack to build several bodies for our company and have been more than satisfied with the quality of the products and service we received.
We would not hesitate to recommend them to any company.
