Etnyre Falcon live bottom trailers are now available to WA, SA and NT bulk handling and agriculture industries.

WA-based road transport equipment manufacturer Bruce Rock Engineering has been appointed as the exclusive distributor of US-manufactured Etnyre Falcon live bottom trailers for Western Australia, South Australia and the Northern Territory.

The Falcon trailers have a non-tipping design and unload via a horizontal conveyor. This allows the trailer to work in tunnels and under bridges, powerlines and other overhead infrastructure where access may be difficult.

The design is well suited to the bulk handling, road construction, earthmoving and agricultural industries for the transport of hot mix asphalt, sand, gravel, aggregates and other bulk products.

BRE managing director Damion Verhoogt said: “The Etnyre Falcon complements our own range of Bruce Rock side and end tippers by offering clients a solution to some specific bulk haulage challenges such as unloading on difficult terrain or near overhead infrastructure.

“Rather than tipping, it uses a hydraulic-driven conveyor to unload the product so there is little to no risk of rollovers during unloading cycles,” said Mr Verhoogt.
