Great working companions. Since 1946.

Designed to be super strong and tough, SAM Tip Trailers make excellent workmates. 

Popular for their high-end construction, they look great on-farm and boast extreme toughness for you for the long-term. 

Each one comes with simple to operate drop down sides and a functional spreader tail-board. Core-ten steel decks have been incorporated across all sizes due to its strength. Quality components are the very best we can find around the world. All are hand-made in New Zealand with care.

Three, four, six, eight and ten tonne Trailers make up the range.
