graham lusty trailers walking floor axle options

Every trailer is professionally detailed before it is delivered to the customer. All GLT trailers are laser wheel aligned prior to delivery. GLT walking floors are available in tandem, tri or quad axle configurations. We have a large range of options to customise your new moving floor. See below for some of our most popular options.

All GLT aluminium bodies are fabricated from European sourced marine grade aluminium plate. Floor and wall sheet thicknesses can be customised to suit the application.

Top coamings are also an exclusive aluminium extrusion. These specialised extrusions increase the tub body strength while maintaining exceptional tare weight. All top coamings are either huck riveted or bolted with stainless steel bolts. This method of construction allows the coaming to flex and reduces the risk of cracking.

Fronius machines are used to create superior welds on all aluminium sections.

Body Type Options Include
Graham Lusty Trailers straight body type

Straight Body - This body type is standard on lead rollback moving floors. Tag moving floors can select this option or the wedge body type (see below).

Graham Lusty Trailers drop deck type

Wedge Body – To achieve maximum cubic capacity our engineers have given the floor a 1 degree drop. This gives you a 240mm drop over a 45’ unit.

Side Wall Options Include
Graham Lusty Trailers plate side wall option

Plate – Lower sections are formed from 10mm plate which is then joined to 8mm plate midway up the wall. Mill finish plate is used which can be left raw or painted.

Graham Lusty Trailers plank side wall option

Plank – GLT custom extruded planks. These are ideal for maximum height bodies as they reduce the amount of side wall bulge.

Front Sheet Options Include
Graham Lusty Trailers standard flat front sheet option

Flat Front Sheet for Plate Side - Our standard front sheet for a Walking Floor is 5mm thick with a polished finish. Other thicknesses and finishes are available.

Graham Lusty Trailers rounded front sheet

Plank Style – This option will match the finish of a plank sided trailer.

All our chassis are made from 700 grade mechanical steel with quenched and tempered skid plates. Minor amounts of 350 and 250 grade steel are used for small profile gussets.

GLT uses CA D design programs

Each chassis is 3D modelled and laser cut. Our steel fabrication team are highly skilled qualified tradesmen. Miller digital pulse welders are used which lay a clean weld.

All edges on flanges are sanded and polished to reduce the chances of cracking and also to help paint adhere to the steel.

Graham Lusty Trailers only use Fronius welders

GLT chassis are optimised for Hendrickson Intraax airbag suspension and axles. Other brands such as BPW, SAF and K-Hitch can be optioned. Subtle design changes are made to the chassis to accommodate these different suspension brands ride characteristics.

GLT trailers are designed to handle the harsh Australian conditions. The correct suspension and axle selection is one of the most important factors in the trailers' ability to survive our unique roads.

Graham Lusty Trailers Chassis Tipper uses Hendrickson suspension

GLT chassis are optimised for Hendrickson INTRAAX air bag suspension and Hendrickson axles. Other brands such as BPW, SAF and K-Hitch can also be equipped if requested. GLT is an authorised Hendrickson dealer which allows us to offer greater after-sales support.

Graham Lusty Trailers chassis tipper suspension options

Air bag suspension offers better ride quality, low tare weight and simplified ways of reading load weights. The prefered brands which we supply have passed our field testing protocol and have excellent after sales support. All trailers with air bag suspension are equipped with ball valve taps to isolate individual bags. These taps will allow you to shut off an air bag if it has an issue.

Rollover with Pelmets

By far our most popular option. The tarp rolls up neat and tidy out of the way when loading. When unrolled, the tarp offers a high level of cover to protect your load.  Compared to the QLD style tarp, the roll over is easier for the operator to use, reducing OH&S risks. Side drop is 300mm standard and can be increased to 600mm. A full range of colours available. Razor electronic tarp upgrade available on this tarp.

QLD Style

If you want the most water proof tarp option, tick this option. Tarps come standard with 300mm long flaps front and rear which are pull down tight to seal the front and rear of the tub. The side drop is standard at 600mm. This gives you a bit of extra room to roll over the heaped loads while still getting a tight seal along the side of the tub. A full range of colours are available.

Retractable with flap ends

These tarps retract forward to allow loading. The rear part of the tarp has a flap end which is pulled down tight to seal the rear of the trailer once loaded. The tarp supports can range from 200mm to 350mm high.  Retractable tarps are not waterproof and leaking can occur.  A full range of colours are available. 

Retractable with plate ends

These tarps retract forward to allow loading. The rear part of the tarp has a sliding aluminium pelmet.  The tarp supports can range from 200mm to 350mm high.  Retractable tarps are not waterproof and leaking can occur.  A full range of colours are available.  

Hooded

Custom designed in-house by our boffins, this system uses hydraulic cylinders to open and close the hoods. The structure is made from aluminium to reduce tare weight. This system has a fast opening time at 10 seconds flat. A full range of colours are available.

Tarp Controls - Manual

Manual tarps come with stainless steel handles.  Sliders and rollbacks come equipped standard with telescopic handles. All other trailers are equipped with fixed length handles as standard with telescopic as an option.

Tarp Support - Rolled Aluminium RHS

This is a popular option for operators wanting a tough alternative to Flexbows. These supports can be spaced at custom intervals. 

Tarp Support - Air Flip Over Bar

This air-operated tarp support can be operated from either the trailer via a push/pull switch or truck cabin controlled switches. The bar and centre pelmet is designed to be contamination free.

Hinge - 1 Way

Hinge - 2 Way

This door style uses container style locks and stainless steel hinges. The doors can be fixed open with latches.

Hinge - External

Our most popular type of hinge. This hinge sits outside of the body.

Hinge - Internal

This hinge allows for the rear door to close flush. Some people say that this hinge type is pretty good looking, too.p>

Finish - Standard

The rear of the tailgate has the internal support posts exposed. This style door is our lightest door.

Finish - Reverse

This style gives the door a clean finish. There is a weight penalty of around 50-80kgs. The inside of the door is still a flush finish just like the standard tailgate.

Recommend for operators wanting to cart products such as hides. These locks are manually operated and provide excellent sealing pressure. The door plug seals the grain door water tight.

Split Tailgates

This option is suited to tailgates where clearance with the ground or other trailers is an issue. We can do a single or a double split. The split is controlled by a single or twin air ram.
