Driven Trailer – Agriculture

Multidrive Driven Full Trailer ‘Flexible Frame’

The Multidrive ‘Flex Frame’ is a unique system that allows drive between a rigid truck and full trailer, allowing for 8×8, 8×10 and 10×10 drive configurations.

In Agriculture this system is for use transporting a diverse range of produce through difficult terrain and soil conditions where exceptional oscillation is required between the tractor and trailer unit.

The Flex-Frame coupling system delivers a drive from the rear tractor through-drive axle to the leading tandem trailer axle.

When compared to a rigid vehicle of similar proportions this system dramatically improves mobility, manoeuvrability and agility.

In addition to allowing drive to the trailer unit, the design also enables:

  • Unlimited oscillation between tractor and trailer, which improves wheel to ground contact, enhancing traction
  • 50 degrees up and down
  • 50 degrees side to side/li>
  • 360 degrees rotation
  • Smallest 17M turning circle in its class achieved with only one steer axle and minimum ‘cut in’
  • Increased axle spacing giving a wider spread of traction
