About the Site Range

If you are looking for quality in your Cable Drum Trailer, then you have most definitely come to the right place. Based in Scotland, our wide range of trailers will help you transport power and cable drums straight to your development site.

Unique to the Site Range Trailers, they have been specifically designed and supplied for off-road use, and to be used on and around about site. Each trailer is fitted with some sort of brake system, hand parking facility and basic vehicle lights for moving around on site.

These trailers are ideal as they improve the all-round safety on site, the ease of application on site and cut additional costs.

How to use?

Site Range Trailers have been installed with a hydraulically operated jacking system, this elevates the trailer and allows the sides to extend and retract to your application. You then select the width of the drum you are going to utilize and then insert a pin at the correct point to secure the framework of the trailer for use.

The controls for the drum drive system and power lift units are located at the rear of the trailer.

Key Features

  • All drum widths are with drum locking collars fitted to spindles
  • Available in single, twin or multi axle
  • Hydraulically operated jacking system elevates the trailer
  • Brake system and hand parking facility fitted within

**It is important to note the trailer size and machine size so that both can work in coherence with each other

Is there a maximum towing speed?

This is where the Site Range differs to the Highway Range.

These Site Range Trailers have not been built to conform to EEC braking/lighting directives in the way the Highway Range have. Although, some non-EEC countries have allowed operation of these trailers on the highway under the condition that towing speeds must not be exceeded when carrying a full rated payload.

They have much lower towing speeds as they are not designed for motorways or main UK roads, they are designed for idle use on site.


We understand that the sizes of drum vary, depending on your application. As drums of the cable get larger and heavier to reduce the number of joints in the cable, our SureFast range of Site Trailers has expanded to accommodate drum sizes of up to 2800mm wide, with a maximum of 5000mm diameter and can handle heavier loads with a maximum payload of 48000kgs.
