Drake Trailers have a reputation within Australia and overseas for being quality trailer manufacturers. Despite our company forming in the late 50s, we still take care to keep up with any new developments and demands that may arise within our industry.
Our trailers are manufactured and designed and built in Brisbane to tackle the harshest conditions Australia has to offer. Due to our harsh climate and massive size of this great land of ours, we have unique transportation needs. Transportation of some of today’s specialised machinery and equipment has brought about several issues for many transport operators. In response to this need, we have created our new range of extendable trailers to cater for the increasing size of modern equipment and machinery.
Our semi-modular steerable platform trailer has been uniquely designed by our experts to extend from 18.5m to 27.3m in just a few minutes. It can also achieve a maximum width of 4.8m, perfect for transporting any long, high, heavy or cumbersome loads.
This new trailer is also able to carry up to 140 tonnes, thanks to its six rows of eight tyres, which can be extended. It is just one in the new range.
A hydraulic gooseneck that can be raised and lowered via remote control, raise and lower suspension, ramps and widening are just some of the features this new steerable low-loader trailer boasts.
Fully automated greasing systems, plus heavy duty diesel or hydraulic power packs, also come as standard.

Western Australian based transport company, WA Specialised Transports’ existing fleet of Drake equipment has just grown slightly larger, courtesy of our new extendable trailer. Owner John Liddelow was delighted with the fact our new trailer saved his company money, because of its ability to ‘close up’ within regulation lengths after unloading.
