What is the 3 Ton Plant Trailer?

This plant trailer is designed mainly for transporting plant machinery to and from your building sites, and tend to be standard equipment for most plant users. We offer short and long-term hires to suit your business needs. As a family run business ourselves, who have been in the industry for a long time, we want to be flexible allowing you to run your business with minimal costs.

Our road towable, heavy duty, 3-ton plant trailer will allow you to transport your plant machinery (like mini excavators) to the various building sites or projects they are required on.

We offer hire of our equipment with no account set up and can organise delivery for you, allowing you to get on with the job in hand.

This product is what it is, it will be the heavy duty trailer you need it to be and is:

  • Ideal for carrying a mini excavator or vibrating rollers
  • The perfect solution to transport supplies to and from the building site
  • Ideal for carrying any other plant machinery items (with up to a total weight of 3-ton)

This plant trailer is heavy duty and can carry a weight of up to 3-ton of plant machinery (including the trailer). It has loading ramps and side anchor points to make sure your machinery is loaded safely.  It can be towed by a car or a van and has 4 wheels (and a spare, just in case!) to make sure your plant machinery, equipment or supplies are secure and arrive safely.

Typical Projects used for?

The 3-ton plant trailer is typically hired by Project Managers and/or Site Managers. However, we have had many self-employed excavator drivers hiring them out to transport their machinery to the next job. The main projects the trailers have been hired for are transporting:

  • Plant machinery to and from building sites
  • Equipment and supplies to building sites and back to yard
  • Sacks of sand, concrete and rubble to and from the building site
