FELK Horse Float Repairs
FELK has been performing horse float repairs for the greater Hunter for over half a decade.
With Scone being the equestrian capital of NSW, training centres throughout Gloucester, and nearby racecourses like Randwick and Hamilton, many horse breeders and trainers trust FELK Engineering at Warner’s Bay to service and repair their floats.
We also provide related services such as registration checks, new parts, engineering certifications, modifications & more. Consider us your one stop float repair shop!
Please phone us on (02) 4954 6955 to book in your repair. The majority of services are completed within 5 working days (workload depending) and the repair will be fully RMS compliant.
We perform the following horse float repairs
- Floors (over time, horse urine can deteriorate the trailer floor)
- Brakes & brake controllers (including upgrades)
- Electrical systems
- Belly rails
- Stallion dividers
Essentially we are able to repair all the undercarriage of the float.
We have worked on many horse float models from varying manufacturers
Note, we cannot repair the float capsule or internals
If you are experiencing issues with the internal parts of the float (i.e. kitchen, upholstery, body restoration, storage, doors), please get in touch with a professional in that field.
Horse Float Repair FAQ
Can you provide horse-float registration, including blue and pink slips?
Yes. Please visit our registration & inspection page to learn more.
Will my float be 100% roadworthy after repairs?
Yes. Everything that leaves our workshop is fully RMS and ADR compliant. Safety is our focus here at FELK.
What tyre pressure should I use with my horse float?
As a general guideline, light truck tyres should be inflated to approximately 45 PSI.
What type of flooring do you use and can it be damaged?
If we are replacing a floor, we typically use a heavy plywood. We use plywood, not metal, to increase the grip for the horse.
Sometimes, people may install a rubber matt (or request FELKS to supply one) for even more traction.
Over time, horse hooves and urine will inevitably damage the floor. We do our best to make a robust solution. We have seen our plywood floors last over 10 years, however, that’s not guaranteed.
How can corrosion-damage on horse-float trailers be improved?
The primary strategy is to have the body/chassis built or repaired using hot dipped galvanized steel.
For horse-floats that have been created using regular steel with paint, the horse urine will quickly erode the paint and lead to rust.
