A standard coal spec 26m B-Double side tipper with 10mm aluminium floors will tare in at around 14 tonnes. Hydraulic phasing cylinders are used on both the tub and doors. Tipping cycle times can be less than 30 seconds per trailer depending on the truck hydraulics.

GLT door side tippers use our custom composite seal with spherical bearing pivot hinge. This spec gives the trailer the ability to haul products such as mineral sand without any leaks.

Bowl style bodies are the other option we offer. Plate is rolled and pressed to suit your design requirements. The rounded sides are strong and reduce the chances of contamination build up.

End sheets are a standard flat design while the side sheet uses a pressed lower curve. The pressed lower curve increases strength and rigidity in the side wall.

Aluminium floor beams and top coamings are an exclusive extrusion belonging to GLT. These specialised extrusions add to the strength and weight savings to all GLT trailers.

Each chassis is 3D modelled and laser cut. All steel work is hand welded using Miller digital pulse machines by our highly skilled tradesmen.

The tipping pivots utilise a multi-link floating design which takes stress off the chassis and tub bodies. Special nylon pads are used where the body rests on the chassis.

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

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.

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.

Trailer Options
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.

Standard Retractable

Custom Spacing

Our standard light spacing interval is 1300-1500mm. If you want more light bling then we can go as close as 300mm between lights. We also offer lights at the top of the side sheets at matching intervals.

Work Lights

Work lights can be fitted to the tailgates, wings on RediTips and within the tubs either up the front near the hoist well or near the rear door.

Mill Finish

This is our base level finish.  It's a natural granular finish and holds up pretty well to staining.

Painted

Choose from a large range of colours to personalise your trailers. We use only premium quality paints.

Vinyl

A popular option. The vinyl is applied in 1400mm wide drops with a slight overlap. Each drop can be replaced if they get damaged, making it less expensive to maintain compared to paint.

Plastic Radius Guards

Choose from a range of colours.  Our standard brand is Maxus with other brands such as Truckmate.  Our radius guards are mounted to the chassis by a 8mm thick alumimium bracket, making them very strong and stable. 

Chrome Dress Strips

Dress up your radius guards with chrome dress strips.  These look great and finish off the guard area nicely. 

Stainless Steel Radius Guards

If you want the bling look then stainless steel radius guards are the go.  We recommend the ribbed type as they hold up to rougher conditions better.
