Truck Fifth Wheel Plate

Brigg Haulage have now purchased over 8 Fifth Wheel Lube Liner Plates

The self-lubricating plate for the fifth wheel results in a perfectly lubricated anchorage for your vehicle. Made of a high-density plastic material, this provides significant levels of resistance and durability. Our Truck fifth wheel autolube liner removes the need to regularly lubricate the plate.
If you are not doing repeated drops, it is not unusual for the Lube Liner to last up to 1½ years before needing to be replaced.
To improve performance and reducing operating costs, customers have fitted a durable Truck Fifth Wheel Lube Liner. This high-density polyethylene disc helps removes lubricating problems by eliminating the need for 5th wheel plate grease. Lube Liners attach to a trailer’s kingpin and provide constant lubrication for easier handling, cleaner operation, safer trailing and more reliable performance during on-the-road operations.
It removes the danger of a dry 5th wheel plate and it ends the need to clean plate grease from your tractor and trailer. By replacing the need for lubricating grease, the plate also reduces the possibility of fire from displaced grease falling onto the hot exhaust or onto electronic components.
The minimum life of our liners is typically around 250,000 miles. However, improved driving conditions can result in a considerably longer life of around 500,000 miles.
Brigg Haulage have now purchased over 8 Truck Fifth Wheel Lube Liner Plates for the fleet. Adding a new Lube Liner to a trucks fifth wheel when a truck is under a service routine minimises time off the road and helps spread the purchase cost.

Truck Fifth Wheel Covers

On average 30% of 5th wheel grease is wasted

Millions of pounds of grease are washed off 5th wheels in this country every year. This not only has a huge impact on the environment causing water pollution but is also extremely costly to haulage and logistic businesses.

During application a significant amount of grease is either dropped in the workshop or falls off onto the tractor unit making the tractor unit dirty, unsightly and uncomfortable to work in.

Greasy residue on surfaces and on the ground can prove hazardous during hitching and can cause individuals to slip on the ground and on the back of tractor units. This has considerable implications from a health and safety view point in and in particular from an employer’s liability perspective.

On average 30% of 5th wheel grease is wasted.

Truck Fifth Wheel Lubrication Liner have Heath & Safety benefits, with less oil and grease on the fifth wheel the likelihood of oil dripping onto a hot exhaust is virtually impossible, hence protecting against truck fire.

Many companies have fitted a Truck Lube Liner recently, David Craig Haulage in Berwick Upon Tweed completed a fleet fit of the Truck Fifth Wheel Lube Covers.
