FELK Plant Trailers
Plant trailers are primarily designed for carrying earthmoving equipment such as bobcats, excavators and forklifts etc. FELK Engineering has been manufacturing plant trailers from Australian steel since opening over 50 years ago.
We usually provide trailers to mining companies for heavy duty use.
Our plant trailers range from 2,000kg to 4,500kg GVM rating.
The feedback has been excellent and we have constantly refined our engineering to deliver a solution that is:
- Safe to operate
- Designed for purpose
- Well constructed
- Looks great
As a result, FELK Engineering is proud to offer the most refined plant trailer to Australian industries, 100% compliant and are supported by a three-year warranty.
Our plant trailers can be set up to accommodate multiple types of heavy vehicles and can be re-adjusted when necessary. We align the axles, tow ball weights and ensure there is enough downforce on coupling so towing safety is maximised.
We also perform modifications on plant trailers to ensure they match requirements perfectly.
Plant Trailer FAQ
How does FELK Engineering maximise safety when building a plant trailer?
The trailer itself is over-engineered. We use a heavier class of Australian steel, so the foundation itself is as strong as possible.
In addition to the chassis, we place emphasis on
- The quality of our welding
- Quality products (i.e. axles, suspension, stands, and jockey wheels)
- Appropriate tie-down points
FELK view safety as our number one priority. For as long as we’ve been in business, we’ve consistently improved our plant trailers and are proud to be a highly rated and distinguished manufacturer in the industry.
How often should I get my plant trailer serviced?
Approximately once per year.
What advantages do FELK plant trailers have over the competition?
For more than 50 years we’ve had the opportunity to service our own, as well as those from other manufacturers. From servicing other manufacturers trailers, we have found the faults and have ensured that these weak areas have not been duplicated in our manufacturing or design.
While our prices are towards the upper range, we can assure you that FELK plant trailers offer the highest caliber reliability, durability and serviceability. It’s that simple.
We require a fleet of plant trailers for our business, what information do we need to prepare for FELK Engineers?
If you are considering ordering multiple, please prepare
- The specifications (namely length, width, height, weight) of the excavator or vehicle you plan to use on top of the trailer
- The environment you work in
- The date you require them by
Do you provide fixed servicing options for mining companies you deal with?
No. Servicing is performed on a standard hourly rate plus parts used. An itemised invoice will be provided.
The client will be notified and the issue discussed if a problem is found before any work is performed outside the scope of the normal servicing process.
