A150 Trailer Mount


Project Description

Power Pumping as a long-term user of Metco UHP Pumps has existing UHP Skid mount units in their fleet. As business needs change so does the specification and configuration of fleet.

UHP Mobility is paramount to get to those out-of-the-way places.  Power Pumping saw our own A150-40-TD UHP Trailer. Then approached us about converting an A150 Skid mount into a trailer unit.  Something they could tow behind a standard work vehicle.

Another successful project was completed by the engineering and design team in our Adelaide facility.

Once we were engaged by the customer and fully understood their requirements. Which were to turn the existing A150 Skid Mount unit into a trailerised version.  It was then a matter of working out what needed to be done to the existing unit.

As well as identifying what were the Australian Design Rules that applied to the trailer and the associated mass it was carrying.
