SDC’s has a huge range of short curtainsider trailers, classed as Urban. The Urban curtainsiders are generally 1 or 2 axle, and can come equipped with a rear steering axle. This makes them the ideal solution for delivering product into urban environments and tight rural locations. Urban trailers are normally fitted with a tail-lift or a fork truck rear end for ease of off loading onsite. The urban trailer gives the operator greater degree of flexibility.
Benefits of SDC's Urban Curtainsider:
- Increased operator flexibility
- Easily manoeuvrable
- Removes the need for rigid trucks, allowing better utilisation of tractor units
Fork-Truck or Tail-Lift Rear Ends
Under slung tail lifts are available to be fitted to this trailer. The benefit of these tail lifts are uninterrupted rear end loading / unloading from docks and excellent unloading in a multi-stop store delivery situation.
Self-steer or command steer rear axle
Command steering rear axle reduces tyre scrub, this in turn reduces tyre wear and fuel consumption. It also offers increased manoeuvrability which is a major benefit to the operator when delivering to urban areas.
