Standard Features

Click & Connect

Connect is defined by the concept of configuration. Using the Click & Connect system, any available option can be added or removed to suit as and when needed. So the Connect is just as competent loading and transporting super-cars, as tractors, mowers, heavy equipment and materials in site clearance or maintenance operations. This is the redefinition of the multi-purpose trailer.
In every corner of the Connect chassis and placed at points in-between are high strength 'Connect Nodes'. Each node represents the ability to click into place a variety of posts for options such as side systems, headboards or ladder racks. No tools, no fuss.

Multiple anchor points

Numerous strap attachment points are provided along each side of Connect. Each are located through the chassis providing ultimate strength. For vehicle transport a set of professional wheel 'sling' straps can be used for maximum security. Machine movement is made easy with many tie-down options.

Underside rope Hooks

Multiple rope hooks are provided on the underside.

LED Marker Lamps

LED technology, super-bright and reliable lamps are fitted in front (white), sides (amber) and rear outline marker (red/white/ amber) positions as well as for registration plate illumination.

Individual Lamp Array

Stylish, well protected lamps are individually replaceable in the unlikely event of damage. They feature a high quality bulb holder providing durability and a convenient twist release mechanism for easy bulb access. The fully sealed lamps are further protected by a bodywork housing preventing direct wheel spray. Connect features a junction box wiring system for easy maintenance.

Smooth-ride, self damping

Connect trailers are designed for long distance and heavy loads. Axles and suspension technology is by AL-KO, Europe's largest trailer equipment manufacturer. With extensive in-house testing and development facilities in Germany and a history of over 80 years, AL-KO are able to provide an unmatched combination of competence and experience. Connect offers the choice of either a 10" or 12" wheel / tyre size. Choose 10" for the best in low-loading or 12" when a super heavy-duty performance is a priority. Several combinations of either Twin or Tri-axle extend the range to meet any requirement

Super Structure

The strength of Connect is more than skin deep. Super-strength steel used in the main chassis fabrication is complemented by two additional longitudinal beams just below the 18mm thick phenol ply anti-slip centre bed. Lighter weight and improved strength, combined with the durability of a hot-dip galvanised chassis will be a part of the Connect for many years.
