The Chieftain Root Crop trailer range has been designed to achieve maximum carrying capacity for the transportation of crops, silage, peat etc.
Chieftain's knowledge and expertise in the commercial trailer sector has contributed to the fact that models are fitted with 10 stud high speed commercial axles (420 x 180 brakes) on parabolic suspension AS STANDARD. This gives braking efficiencies of over 50% (similar to that of commercial road trailers). This also reduces the brake wear on your towing tractor and saves the operator money on replacement parts for both the tractor and trailer.
The trailers are also built on a heavy duty chassis and have a hydraulic tail door with chute and sprung drawbar (which considerably diminishes impact loads and assist driver comfort). Other features include 6mm steel material for the floor and sides and Steel construction mudguards with bolt on spray suppression mud flaps behind each wheel. It has been shot blasted to guarantee high quality and long-lasting resistance against corrosion.
It is finished with 2-pack epoxy primer and paint, with a colour that will complete your trailer but also protect it from the harsh environment.
Please see the list of standard and optional features to create a trailer right for you.
