Custom Plant Trailers by HANS: Design Your Own Trailer From Our List of Specs Or Fully Customise

The HANS group is a leading manufacturer of custom plant trailers. We have been producing high-quality trailers in Queensland for over 50 years, operating two plants and employing more than 50 people.

At HANS we offer a range of plant trailers to suit your particular piece of plant or equipment. We understand that plant and equipment varies greatly in mass and size, so you can choose from one of our pre-manufactured designs or speak to us about customising a plant trailer for your specific needs.

If you already know what kind of plant trailer you want, you can choose from a range of specs here.

Why choose HANS for your plant trailer?

HANS use 3D modelling software and CNC production machinery to produce high-quality trailers for a wide range of customers at affordable prices. Each of our trailers is designed for specific purposes, such as moving heavy equipment, plant and machinery.

Our trailers are made with pre-galvanised materials, ensuring your trailer is not susceptible to chipping or flaking paintwork. We also offer a 5-year guarantee on our plant trailers—that’s how confident we are in our manufacturing process and final product.

Custom plant trailers: choose from our specs or fully customise

Custom Plant Trailer Manufacturers Queensland | HANS BrisbaneYou can design your own plant trailer from our predesigned specs—choose your size, suspension, brake running gear, wheel and tyres, draw bar, and flooring—and we’ll build the perfect trailer for you.

Alternatively, if you need a fully customised trailer, contact us and we’ll do everything we can to make it a reality.

We also build specialised trailers such as tandem roller trailers, front deck mower trailers and excavator trailers (see below for more info).

Plant trailer specifications

Aggregate trailer mass (ATM)

Our plant trailers are made of heavy-duty steel and range from 2000–4500 kg ATM. (The ATM is the combined mass of the trailer and its load.) Our range ensures that you can move almost anything you need.

So the first thing to do when choosing a trailer is to work out how much the trailer will be carrying. Generally, our trailer categories are less than 2000 kg ATM, less than 3200 kg ATM, and less than 4500 kg ATM.

If you need a higher ATM, talk to us about at a fully custom trailer or another trailer type.


Plant trailer dimensions range from 1600–1800 wide and 3000–5400 long. These are the standard for plant trailers and are designed especially for heavy loads.

Braking systems

If you’re going to be moving big loads, you want to know that your new trailer is going to stop as required. Our trailers can be fitted with either mechanical or electric braking systems and can be customised with suspension loads from 2000–4500 kg.

There are different braking systems available for a new plant trailer:

  • Anything under 2000 kg ATM we suggest 9” mechanical override.
  • Over 2000 kg ATM we recommend 10” electric brakes.
  • Over 3200 kg ATM (up to 4,500 kg ATM) we recommend 11” electric brakes.

Loading equipment

You can select from fold-down loading ramps or we can custom make something for you.

Optional add-ons

We offer a range of optional add-ons for our plant trailers, including:

  • a winch
  • hydraulics tipping
  • custom loading ramps
  • wind-down drop legs
  • a draw bar mounted toolbox.

Specially designed plant trailers
