Manor Farm & Storage praises Fruehauf tippers

Bedfordshire-based Manor Farm & Storage has hailed the reliability and robustness of two new stepframe Smoothsider tipper trailers purchased from Fruehauf.

The 70 cubic yard capacity trailers are new additions to a mixed fleet of tippers that already includes four similar Fruehauf 68 cubic yard stepframes, with the first entering service in 2014.

Director Paul Reilly said: “It’s one of the strongest trailers on the market; they do a brilliant job transporting grain and aggregates. The Fruehauf trailer sits lower, improving stability on the road and enhancing its tipping capabilities.”

The new arrivals will be working with Mercedes-Benz Actros tractor units, mostly transporting grain from farms in Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Northamptonshire to flour mills across the UK. They will also move some aggregates to fulfil the company’s other contracts.

“We do work them hard. The trailers are covering more than 120,000 km per year, so reliability and robustness is crucial. They are also easy to clean and maintain, and we know from experience that Fruehauf trailers are built to last a long time,” Reilly added.

Fruehauf’s stepframe Smoothsider trailers are produced at its 64-acre site in Grantham, Lincolnshire.
