Agricultural Trade Show - Agritechnica

This year, the biannual Agritechnica trade fair will be held in Hannover between 10 and 16 November. Agritechnica is the world’s largest trade fair for agricultural technology.  At the fair, Newton together with Knapen Trailers will be presenting our K200 HDX-A, the agricultural moving floor trailer suitable for on-road and off-road applications. Kep it 3 months a year on off - road tyres and 9 months a year on on road tyres. For example in Germany this qualifies the trailer to be exempt form road tax.

Brexit Day - 31st October 2019

Brexit Day - 31st October 2019 is here. So the big preparations we have done to make sure we have trailers the right side of the channel in sufficient quantities........

Could whinge a bit but then who reads this?  Is it just me or does it look like we are not quite sure about what we are doing in Parliament. No doubt the election in December will clear it all up.

Sugarbeet is happening, apples are happening, soon carrots, then Christmas products - turkeys guts and feathers in water tight trailers. The exciting world in which I live is getting more exciting.

Greener Trailers -Hell in a Hand Cart

As we are all aware from Saint David Attenborough we are all going to hell in a hand cart.  

So here is a small morsel of joy for anyone buying our trailers: we are very green. And how so? Firstly as an ex student of carbon taxation in the 1980's I have always been somewhat concerned that all our children are going to end up fried in Turtle juice due to global warming. So all of Newton Trailer's electrical energy is wind or solar generated.

But the trailers we offer are on first pass surprisingly green too.

Aluminium requires a VAST amount of energy to extract, melt and extrude.  We could carbon offset that energy. And we will offer that service in future.

BUT the aluminum that makes up between half and three quarters of a tipper or a floor mass is 100% end of life recycled.  But more interestingly the original aluminium content was 42% recycled. So thumbs up. Once formed the aluminium is trapped in a recycling circle. The steel axles and steel chassis are 100% end of life recycled. The tyres ditto. It is only the roll over sheet tarpaulin that is waste and not recyclable but we are working on that.

So at least you can sleep at night in that your trailer choice from us is not the worst part of the bulk sector - now how about that 700 hp Scania you have with the extra lights and the row of air horns acting as an air dam.......that hand cart may well look surprisingly like a Red Scania with hellboy at the wheel.
