Step Frame Trailer

The New Sterling 44T Step Frame Low Loader is a new innovation for Sterling, building on our success with Rigid Plant Bodies. It has been developed due to customer demand for a Trailer Supplier manufacturing to the ‘Higher Standard’. Initially available as a Tri Axle 13.6M Trailer, with 4.0M Double Flip Ramps, and with a range of options to suit general plant and access haulage requirements.

Initially available as a Tri Axle 13.6M Trailer, with 4.0M Double Flip Ramps, and with a range of options to suit general plant and access haulage requirements. Ramps are sideways sliding which allows machines of all widths to be safely loaded. It is fitted with a two-stage neck as standard, with a maximum loading angle of 9 degrees which makes it suitable for any plant or low ground clearance machinery.

In keeping with our core values, the Sterling design or our step frame low loaders is extremely customer centred (or demonstrates customer collaboration), and includes innovative recessed lashing rings to ensure safer and quicker securing of loads.

Full fall arrest systems can be specified to allow safe unloading on site.

Having visited the Sterling factory I was extremely impressed in the superior quality of the product and it’s clear that they have produced a design with the user in mind and have eradicated a number of issues seen in competitive products.

Managing Director

During the development and build of the trailers, the team at Sterling clearly understood our requirements and needs to produce a trailer that was ‘fit for purpose’, and not an adapted ‘off the shelf’ unit.

All trucks were delivered to the highest Euro-6 specification with a double cab, driving plus package and living package. Feedback from the drivers is off the Richter scale! These new vehicles maintain the highest standards of Murphy Plant logistics, enabling the delivery of our civil and rail plant fleet, movement of accommodation, and practically any other site movements that Murphy requires.

Mike Carpenter, Murphy Plant

Managing Director

Sterling gave us a date the truck would arrive and to their word it arrived on that day.  Full handover was done by Sterling & DAF, the truck was bang on the spec we wanted and we’re very pleased with what we received!”
