In January, we decided to purchase a live bottom trailer from Trout River Industries to haul asphalt from a plant near our Barrie, Ontario location. However, we knew very little about these types of trailers and relied heavily on Holdaway Truck Service in Orillia for advice. They were extremely helpful in answering our questions and concerns related to these types of trailers.
Our decision to go with a Trout River trailer was based on a number of factors:
- Trout River is a Canadian manufacturer
- the use of a belt system, which includes a reversing belt
- the fact that the tub is bolted rather than welded to the chassis, thereby reducing the chance of stress fractures due to twisting of the tub
We were very pleased to take possession of our new live bottom trailer to complement our fleet of excavating equipment. The trailer was delivered on time and Holdaway took the time to go over the operation and maintenance.
Thanks Trout River for a great manufacturing job and Holdaway Truck for your excellent customer service. We would certainly be pleased to deal with both companies for our next live bottom trailer purchase.
