Lusty EMS is a big supplier of bulk haulage tipper products.


Widespread rain across south eastern Australia has increased the demands for tippers, according to MaxiTrans’ South Australian state sales manager, Kym Penhall

Penhall describes how the grain harvest in South Australia is rolling down from the northern and western wheat belts and will conclude in the south east in the height of summer.

He adds that, under the compliance oversight of the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR), the state is making full use of truck combinations.

"There’s a lot of variety of combinations down here in South Australia from B-doubles, road trains to AB-triples," Penhall continues.

He says for these configurations customers are able to apply for a low cost permit through the NHVR portal to gain approval on the routes they want to travel.

The demand has coincided with the expansion of MaxiTrans’ manufacturing and engineering capabilities due to the opening of a new heavy duty trailer manufacturing facility at Carole Park, Queensland. The new facility will increase the numbers of trailers reaching the market and has been purpose built, replacing the company’s former facility at Richlands.

MaxiTrans says its bulk haulage tipper products feeding into grain haulage applications fly under the Lusty EMS and Hamelex White flags.

It points to Lusty EMS providing a wide range of tipper bulk haulage solutions from the its semi-tipper available in modules suitable for single trailer work or B-double combinations, through the Stag B-double combos that preclude the requirement of having to unhook to unload, and the versatile multipurpose Multi-Loader range.

It states that PBS combinations and dollies for road train setups are also available through Lusty EMS.

MaxiTrans says Hamelex White manufactures a wide range of tippers and bulk haulage equipment, including B-double tippers, three- up to six-axle truck and dog combinations, tip over axle (TOA), moving floors and chassis tippers.

In addition, Hamelex White is said to offer tippers ideally suited to grain haulage when maximum payload and low tare weight are priorities.
