New partnership looking ahead Setting its sights on the UK market, since January 2017, Belgium based manufacturer of agricultural trailers Record has appointed Swaffham, Norfolk based DC Engineering as its UK Agent. DC Engineering, established in 2002, is best known for supplying high quality and reliable vegetable handling equipment. Record’s products were seen at their first competition appearance at this year’s Royal Norfolk Show, where DC Engineering submitted a
multi-functional silage trailer with driven axles, which won a highly commended award on the Norfolk Farm Machinery Club’s stand. The manure spreader was the first product from Record and includes the De S-series range, a more basic model and the Vulkan range offering five versions in varying lengths with single or tandem axles. The new “evolution” in Record’s tipper trailer range is the KMR Evo, from 14.5–24t featuring a monocoque
body and height of 1,500mm, enabling it to unload harvested crops direct into waiting lorries. It is suitable for the transfer of all vegetables, points out DC Engineering. All Record products offer improved tyre specifications, rear axle steering, ABS braking, as well as hydraulic and drawbar suspension allowing for a smooth ride. ■ KMR 2400 tipper trailers from Record can be used for a range of crops from cereals to roots. 08R27B
