Montracon secures a “world first” at the CV Show with the very first semi-trailer with 17.5” 10 stud wheels to be fitted with this brand new size of Zafety Lug Lock from Parma Group.
This security product is rapidly becoming a firm favourite with fleet operators and the new size for this low level trailer is also set to be come a very popular request.
At this year’s CV Show, Montracon celebrates 40yrs in the trailer industry by taking its largest ever stand (Hall 3, 3A63). The show starts on Tuesday 25th April until Thursday 27th April.
One of three vehicles making a show debut is a twin lifting deck reefer that has been developed to accommodate more pallets than previous Montracon models. It carries 44 split 18 on the upper deck, 18 on the lower and 8 over the swan neck. This trailer is also displayed fitted with the Axscend Trailermaster. In addition to a reversing safety aid, it provides continuous monitoring of the trailer’s performance with a view to optimising utilisation.
The reefer is joined by two other debut makers, a curtainsider rigid chassis and a more versatile machinery/plant carrier. The curtainsider body is displayed mounted on a 26tonne DAF chassis and is one of an order for 91 Montracon bodies, a mix of boxvans, curtainsiders and refrigerated supplied to Commercial Vehicle finance provider and leasing specialist Asset Alliance.
Asset Alliance has also placed a follow up order for a further 24, a mix of curtainsiders and refrigerated. The CV Show rigid has a 9m body and is of all bolted galvanised steel construction and built to meet EN12642-XL load security standard.
Completing the stand is a 13.6m curtainsider trailer that adds a further splash of colour, being finished in the company’s 40th anniversary livery.

The demands placed on the ‘simple’ semi-trailer dictate that its specification varies to meet the wide and diverse needs of the many industries it serves. Perhaps the best example of this is the plant/machinery carrier, a specialist trailer that can be called upon to move all manner of equipment from machine tools to quarry loaders, excavators and, quite often, a mix of the same and all in between.
And that’s where Montracon’s New MT45 machinery carrier comes in; in essence, the company has taken a leaf from the car industry by engineering a standard specification base line common platform, with a range of optional modules, that at the ultimate level provide a trailer with unrivalled load versatility and its owner with optimum operational flexibility.
