Trailer manufacturer Lusty EMS has come up with a customised lead slider and chassis tipper B-double set for South Australian operator Gericke Bulk.

Among other things, Gericke wanted a more efficient method of tipping grain from the lead trailer to eliminate the build-up of grain between the guards and to allow a cleaner and faster tip.

Lusty EMS engineers in Queensland came up with a centre tip-through chute system, integrated between the front and centre axle group and extending to the top of the guards.

The chassis for both trailers are built using 'Domex', a 700 grade high tensile steel Lusty EMS says helps reduce overall tare weight of the combination by about three quarters of a tonne while maintaining strength and durability.

There are also digital scales on each trailer, two locks on the access doors, front lift-axles on both trailers to reduce tyre wear and fuel use when running empty, and remote controlled electric tarps.
