The logging industry is one of the biggest parts of the Tasmanian economy, with over an estimated 4 million cubic metres of wood fibre harvested every year. That’s a lot of trees that are felled every year, and the machines that do it are absolutely massive.
Orana Enterprises is one of the biggest logging companies in the state, and they move their own logging equipment from harvest point to harvest point. They’re a family owned local business specialising in eucalyptus timber harvesting and transport, heavy haulage and equipment maintenance.
Moving giant machines and heavy tree trunks around the state from forests to processing factories or shipping ports is tough work, and that’s why Orana Enterprises came to us for their trailer needs.
Orana Enterprises opted for The Drake Group’s Steering Widener for these tasks and more. The front two widening axle rows afford this model extra stability that will prove crucial on the local area’s hills and winding roads. Making the Steering Widener even more enticing is that it can be used on certain travel routes with greater payload weights of up to five tonnes that other trailers aren’t permitted on.
If that wasn’t enough, the Steering Widener is available in 3X4 and 4X4 tyre configurations and features self-tracking BPW axles, enclosed power pack and hydraulic controlled ramps among many other key benefits.
The team at Orana are no strangers to the benefits of using a trailer from The Drake Group as they picked up a Deck Widener back in 2015 that has served them very well over the years. We’d like to thank the entire team and in particular Robert and Dwayne for their continued support.
At The Drake Group, we specialise in making trailers built for every purpose imaginable. With dedicated engineering and manufacturing teams on hand, we have over 60 years of experience making the best heavy haulage trailers in the country. Contact The Drake Group today to find out more.
