Keyo, the agricultural services, logistics and equipment hire specialist has added a Krone Dry Liner box trailer to its fleet which, says the company, in its 50th anniversary year, marks a step up in load security, volume and build quality.
Based in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire, Keyo’s services include complete door-to-door logistics as well as module fabrication, repairs, third party forklift servicing and spot hire and refurbishments. The Dry Liner from Krone is being used for rural deliveries throughout the UK.
“We deliver to farms, often with restricted access, throughout the UK and our cargo requires delicate and safe handling.” Comments Managing Director, Mark van den Bos. “Consequently, we required a box trailer which would combine strength, security and maximum load space within a 4m overall height. With the Krone Dry Liner, we have all this and more.”
Manufactured by Krone in Germany, the Dry Liner specified by Keyo, comes with a steel roof, hydraulic tail lift platform – which folds up to serve as the rear door – two rows of recessed LoadLok and drum brakes. Furthermore, for daily forklift use, the floor is tested to 7 tonnes. The construction is also certified to European standard, Code XL.
“The attention to detail is excellent.” Adds Mark. “The Krone Sales Manager guided us through every stage of the specification and in our opinion, the technical knowledge and advice was second to none.”
In this regard, Krone achieved an internal height of 2615mm, with a fifth wheel height of 1250mm, within the maximum European-permitted height of 4m.
“This is our 50th anniversary year,” concludes Mark van den Bos “and I’m pleased to say, even in today’s highly competitive market, this standard of trailer and back up from Krone raises the transport solution bar and enables us to live up to the high calibre of service our customers have grown to expect!”
