Trailers / 6.0 Tonne Self Loading Cable Trailers

RG - 6.0 Tonne


6-Tonne self-loading cable drum trailer is a unique design which includes two independently controlled lifting arms and chain link to the spindle bearing carriers. This makes it possible to pick up drums that are not aligned to the trailer or are on uneven surfaces. All Redmond Gary self-loading cable drums trailers incorporate this design feature. All trailers are designed for one-man operation. Due to the mechanized design of the trailers which includes hydraulic jacklegs, hydraulic lift arms and drum rotators, trailers can be used for lifting drums, rotating drums etc all by one person. All trailer spindles are high tensile hollow section making them light enough to be a single person lift.

The trailers are of rugged construction featuring hot dip galvanized frame and powdercoated sheet metal components. All trailers are equipped with water-cooled diesel engine and fully self-contained powerpack. Trailers are designed to comply with Australian Standards and Australian Design Rules. They can be registered in any state in Australia and New Zealand. A wide range of optional accessories is available.

Please note the spindle diameter quoted is a special light weight spindle with 95mm outside diameter. If you require 90mm you will require a solid spindle in order to carry the 6 tonne drum weight. A solid spindle will be much heavier than the hollow one we normally provide and it will be a 2 or 3 man operation to lift the spindle And it involves additional cost to fit our standard spindle components. For this reason, most authorities prefer light weight spindles.
