    Kane Trailers

    Looking at Lowloader trailers, what are Kane like ? Seen triaxle advertised locally as "shop soiled".
    To carry 13 tonne excavator, temporary roadway & buckets.
    Any things to worry about with this make compared to other manufactures ?

    Thanks for any comments

    borrowed a tri axle one earlier this yr to shift a digger seemed to handle it no bother pulled well behind tractor

    neighbouring contractor that runs all kane silage trailers runs a herron (iirc) low loader also tri axle for digger, trencher and bale cart so make of that what you will

    tbh can't see it being a bad trailer

    the lights basically don't work!! always having to mess with them to get them to work

    the brakes can not actually be adjusted!! one axle will always brake harder than the others! we have messed with them for hours and still can't get them right.

    mate of mine has a twin axle one, the ramps were shit from the day it was bought, 2nd time a 13 tonner went onto it, it peeled the steel up from off the ramp, it went back to herbst and whilst there was modified to allow a mini digger to be tracked onto it. modified meaning having a tiny bit of tin welded on which could be bent with your foot! and instead of respraying the ramps, they brushed a bit of paint on which was completely the wrong colour

    it has a toolbox on which catches the rear tyres everytime you turn meaning you rip your tyres to shreds!

    look at kane in future!

    I`ve been selling Herbst trailers to farmers and contractors for 10 years. I was more than suprised to read your view. I would recommend them to anyone.

    I have twin axle Herbst and it's a cracking trailer the only fault i have is the axles are just too far back but it is a far better trailer than my old tri axle Redrock, but then it has commercial axles with air, oil and load sensing.

    NC are a nice trailer, very good ramps, very nice to pull, very gradual beavertail angle which is very nice for loading machines. Good steel in them too.

    Country here is full of them.

    http://www.kanetrailers.co.uk/low-loader-trailers-24

    I would have one tomorrow if I could justify it. Phone Noel or Colin in the office and they will talk you through it. They shift diggers etc of their own with them on their own farms, so know what to build.

    Don't think you will be disappointed.

    The contractor I work for has a tri axle NC 32ft with fold down flat ramps, its a great trailer very well built plenty of tying down points the fold down ramps are the business the only downside is the bottom of the rams scrape the ground if you are coming out of a steep site and they put the levers for the ramps 2 foot too far to the back you have to warn everyone who uses it for the first time not to be having a chin wag while unfolding them or they will get a ramp into the jaw.

    John,

    I haven't got one, but would say it would cope well. The link below shows a hydraulic beaver tail with bale racks. Might give you an idea...

    Hope that helps

    I also am a fan of Herbst we use a twin axle and it doesn't half get some stick, both as a plant trailer carrying a 13 tonner and a tracked trencher (15ton?) then when not carting plant is carrying bales in the field.

    The ramps are still very good certainly no metal stripped off them and the lights have been upgraded to LED's so no troubles here, the ones in the beavertail however are still original and they are fine.

    Couple of photos of Herbst with hydraulic back so that it can be used for bales etc. The outer frame remains fixed, with just the inside part lifting. We got two triangular wings made as the inside 'floor' was 3"(?) narrower at each side than the front part of the floor. They only need to be taken off when loading 13ton diggers, and possibly not needed for round bales either. We got them to support the edge of pallets.

    We have a JPM triaxle. They will build what you want, very flexible and relatively helpful. Just it is built to a price. The paint is what lets it down really but so long as it holds up then the saving in purchase price will pay for a full respray.

    Gets used for 5 months of the year several times a day, pulled over long distance and across fields with 15 tonne of kit on it.

    Yes well priced tidy kit. I may end up with one. A few used about as well. Is yours spring or hyd ramp ?
    Our artic trailers are getting a bit old now so could due with a good flat bed. Air brakes etc.
