The GLT tip over axle (TOA) is our lightest weight end-tipping trailer. We can build tri axle 34’ grain spec units to tare in at 5.7 tonnes. That’s 56 cubic meters with a wedge style body. Over the years we have refined the design and have created a very special piece of kit. This type of trailer can also be designed to run in road train configuration including PBS A-Doubles.
Our TOA have about a 100-200kg weight savings over our chassis tippers. With standard draw arms and suspension modules, trailer sizes range from 32 foot/9.7m to 38 foot/11.5m. We can also build smaller units using custom draw arms.
For further weight savings we have an aluminium suspension hanger option for the Hendrickson and SAF brands. This will further decrease tare weight by around 150kg. If you are using the TOA without a Ringfeder as a single or as a tag in a multi combination, we can fit the unit with custom single arm draw arms. This draw arm uses a full pivot pin. A tare weight savings of 100kg will be gained.
The highest quality parts are sourced to manufacture each GLT unit. All nuts, bolts and washers are stainless steel. Grain scrapers, shovels, brooms and grain chutes are equipped as standard. Every trailer is professionally detailed before it is delivered to the customer.
Our TOA’s are available in tandem or tri axle configurations. We have a large range of options to customise your new TOA.
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.
Each body is built on our exclusive extruded aluminium floor beams. The beams are specifically cambered to suit the body length. The process of welding the floor sheet to the beams and cambering the beams all happens simultaneously.
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.
All trailers with a king pin position less then 1400mm come standard with a Jost body lock. GLT bodies are designed to have the hoist feet mounted directly above the king pin to increase strength and stability while tipping. Bodies with upright hoists need the body lock to help hold the body in position while traveling.
Fronius machines are used to create superior welds on all aluminium sections.
Straight Body - This standard body type is a strong, cost effective and a light weight option. Choose from two body widths: Narrow - 2,330mm or Wide (standard) - 2,480mm.
Drop Deck – The drop in the floor will increase the trailer's capacity by 4-8 cubic meters depending on the trailer length. Tare weight will be increased by round 70kgs.
Wedge - This option will give you a similar capacity increase as the drop deck. Tare weight increase will also be similar to the drop deck style body.
Plate – 4mm to 12mm thickness.Choose from either mill finish, mill bright (polished), painted or vinyl.
Standard Lower Curve - The GLT lower curve is an exclusive extrusion. The side sheet and floor sheet slot into the extrusion before they are hand welded into place.
Pressed Sides – GLT can remove the lower curve and press the side sheet to meet the floor sheet. This will reduce the tare weight by around 70kg. It also increases the strength of the tubs making it an ideal option for carrying liquid based goods.
Plank – GLT custom extruded planks. These are ideal for maximum height bodies as they reduce the amount of side wall bulge. This option will increase the trailer tare weight by around 80kg depending on length and height.
Standard Flat Front Sheet - This is our standard front sheet which is 5mm thick with a polished finish. Other thicknesses and finishes are available.
Rounded Front Sheet - This option is ideal for carrying liquid based products. The front sheet is specially rolled before being welded into the place. As liquids move forward when decelerating, the shape of the front sheet reduces the liquid's impact. We recommend a thickness of 6mm to add stiffness to the front sheet which reduces fatigue.
The TOA chassis is a true modular design. The rear suspension and the skid plate/draw arm module are crafted from 700 grade mechanical steel and 350/250 grade steel. All our skid plates are fabricated from quenched and tempered steel.
Each module is 3D modelled and uses laser cut parts. Our steel fabrication team are highly skilled qualified tradesmen.
Skid plate/draw arm modules can be set up to either use single or double draw arms. The hydraulic cylinder for lifting the body are mounted directly over the king pin to reduce stress on the skid plate area.
The rear steel suspension module bolts directly onto the main aluminium beams which run the length of the trailer. 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.
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.
Mechanical spring suspension can be fitted to most GLT trailers. K-Hitch KHDO/KHU and FW88 are our preferred suspension models.
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.
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.
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.

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.
The simple clean way to finish off the guards on a B trailer. Horse hair is added to reduce water spray.
Built to handle the harsh Australian environment. Rubber can range in thickness and colour.
These special valves recognise the difference in axle load and adjust braking force.
Another well-known EBS unit popular with our clients. This unit offers stability control and EBS braking. Knorr Bremse offer excellent technical aftersales support.
If safety is high on your list when operating, then you need to consider the Wabco EBS system. This electrically-controlled braking system helps to reduce the risk of serious accidents.
This is a must-have option for our RediTip range of trailers. As the trailer approaches jack knife, the EBS system will activate the brakes to save your trailers from damage.
