New britains header trailer


Recommended Posts

Not a dud, but is modelled on the US style of header trailer, so doesn't look up to much to us. 

It would be better if they included a trailer specific to each combine, as Siku do.  They also need to add a tow hitch to the rear axle of their combines, to enable the trailer to be used!

It is worth noting also, that some combine manufactureres source their header trailers from the country in which they are sold, which results in different styles of trailer between some European countries. 

As examples, a few years back Claas used to make their own trailers at Saxham for combines sold in the UK (they possibly still do?),  and these were the single mid axle or mid twin axle designs we are used to seeing. Elsewhere in Europe they supplied the German style of trailer which was a 'wheel at each corner' design (similar to the RC2 one). 

Case New Holland source their UK market header trailers from Marston Agricultural Services, which results in us having slightly different designs in the UK compared with elsewhere in Europe. 

Massey Ferguson and Sampo supply their own trailers, so these are the same for all markets.
