Over the past 40 years the Clayton’s fleet has grown to include low loaders capable of moving up to 48 tonnes. From small ambitions with one bogie float (which is still in the fleet) to now having over ten operating on a daily basis. The majority of our fleet is based on the latest Drake trailers. Drake Trailers are considered to be leaders in their field. We transport equipment throughout QLD, NSW, Victoria and occasionally NT. This is a reflection of the changing times adopted to maintain the best service to our customers no matter where they are working all over Australia.
Some valued customers include:
- Downer EDI
- Boral Asphalt
- Allens Asphalt
- Coates Hire
- Conplant Hire
- Shadforths Civil Contractors
- Hiway Stabilisers
- hastings deering
Our fleet has the capacity to transport all types of machinery. All of our low loaders are deck wideners or axle wideners and are fitted with 5.6m bi-fold ramps and winches. These extended ramps allow for the loading of specialist asphalt industry equipment like pavers, profilers and shuttle buggy’s. The combination of the extended ramps and winches ensure that the recovery and loading of machinery that has broken down is able to be loaded in the safest method possible.
Our fleet includes:
- 2 – 2x4 Low Loaders
- 1 – 3x4 Lusty deck widening Low Loader
- 1 – 3x4 Smith deck widening Low Loader with top deck and winch
- 1 – 3x4 Drake deck widening Low Loader
- 1 – 3x4 Drake deck widening extendable (to 15m) Low Loader with winch
- 3 – 4x4 Drake deck widening Low Loader with winches
- 2 – 4x4 Drake axle widening Low Loader with winches (1 with 750mm drop well for high loads)
- 3 – 2x4 dollies
All of our operators are trained to load and secure all types of machinery. We also have operators with a MISC card for access to AAT at Fishermans Island at the Port of Brisbane.
