As many of you know, we love celebrating our customers and the heavy haulage trailers we’ve built for them. Our highly experienced team pour their expertise and passion for building great trailers into every custom design trailer we produce, so that our customers can roll out the door with a trailer they know will serve their individual needs in the harsh Australian environment for years to come – and with great resale value once the dust settles.
So, to recognise our amazing customers and the hard work that goes into building our trailers, we focus on our favourite customer and their latest trailer from The Drake Group.
This month’s Customer in Focus is Andrew Walter Constructions, who took a recent delivery of their second Drake Trailer. This time around it was a 4X4 Full Widener Rear Steer – one of our newer models that’s quickly become one of our more popular trailers, and for good reason.

Heavy equipment requires a sturdy trailer
Andrew Walter Construction has a large variety of heavy equipment that helps them do the job at hand, including front-end loaders, dozers, graders, crushers, excavators and backhoes. So, it’s only natural that they’d need to invest in a durable trailer to safely transport their equipment.
The first Full Widener trailer with rear self-tracking axles was engineered and delivered to its first customer in 2014. Since then, we’ve made a few minor changes, including the ability to fit an optional radio remote to the self-tracking axles to steer yourself through tight areas. It’s an ideal trailer for any kind of environment.
Depending on your requirements, you can add the following extras to build a custom Full Widener (or on any of our trailers for that matter). They include:
- Multiple position skid plate
- Various axles sizes and deck lengths
- Radio remote control steering
- PTO lines, petrol or diesel power pack options
- Radio remote control suspension
- Hydraulic spare tyre crane
- Various storage solutions
