NatRoad 2014: AutoHold trailer to be auctioned at Natroad conference

MaxiTrans’s trailer brand, Freighter, has announced it will supply one of its new AutoHold trailers to industry association NatRoad for auction at its conference this year.

Valued at over $90,000, all proceeds will go towards NatRoad’s work.

The auction will be held at the annual NatRoad auction dinner in Adelaide this Friday, August 15.

Freighter says the new auto-fastening load restraint tautliner trailer has a patented sequential closing system that ensures the curtains fasten at the touch of a  button, even in windy conditions.

The AutoHold is available in two models, with curtain buckles for easy adjustment or without buckles for a clean appearance.

The major feature of the new trailer is one-touch fastening and unfastening of the load restraint curtain. Drivers no longer need to open and close every single buckle when loading and unloading, with the trailer’s pneumatic system doing the work for them.

Freighter says it expects this will save operators around 15 minutes per stop, leading to more drops per day and less stress for the driver.

The trailer going to auction has also been supported by – and features – Hendrickson HT suspension, Alcoa wheels, Bridgestone Ecopia R109 tyres and Glasurit paint.

Other donated sporting memorabilia, luxury items, and useful tools for the road will be auctioned on the night, including  a ThermoKing SB-330fridge unit and a Paccar merchandise pack.
