Unlike a standard box type trailers that have lateral structural members, Appcon trailers have longitudinal structural members that support the excavator/skid steer units under their tracks/wheels, this results in minimal deck distortion due to the load being supported on the deck sheeting and a member rather than just the deck sheeting alone as happens in box type trailers
The running gear used on Appcon trailers is selected for quality and durability rather than just its price. Good quality running gear is critical to a trailer's reliable performance because plant equipment trailers operate at close to their maximum load capacities for the majority of their working life. Unlike box trailers which spend the majority of their time with only a small load or no load at all.
All Appcon trailers use quality equipment from new balanced wheels and tyres to the waterproof rear LED lighting with super-durable polycarbonate lenses that resist breakage.
Lets face it, excavator trailers take a beating from their operators and an Appcon quality trailer will still be operating long after the small additional cost has been forgotten.
