Bulk Freight Purchase Trailer Diagnostics.

Since it’s formation in 1987, Bulkfreight (Midlands) Ltd has maintained it’s ethos of putting the customers requirements first.

Operating a fleet of over 100 articulated vehicles, which are changed every three years. This ensures we operate a “Green Fleet” that meets the current exhaust emission regulations. Our trailer fleet comprises of, Walking Floors, Ejectors & Bulk Tippers.

To meet the maintenance required for the fleet, workshop manager invested in the TrailerCheck 4 Vans, trailer light, Air Brake and ISO tester.

Designed as a mounted trailer tester in a Van or workshop the TrailerCheck 4 Vans is a One Man Trailer Service tool with the option of ECU Trailer Diagnostics.

The Trailer Air Brake And Light Tester is an intelligent unit and has the capability to power multiple trailers without the inconvenience of continually recharging external batteries.

A single trailer service engineer can be under a trailer activating brakes and reading pressures.

Switching brakes on and off allows the user to look for wear in s cams and faulty slack adjusters. The digital pressure gauge measures pressure at the brake chamber, ideal for setting load sensing valves.

EBS Trailers can be tested for CAN line integrity, a quick and simple test to confirm the CAN lines.

Neil Mitchell said “Modern times require a modern approach, the quick and correct maintenance of trailers is as critical as trucks, having the latest up to date test tools is what I believe will make our maintenance routines efficient and to a high standard. Looking at the old Scrutineer and the TrailerCheck 4 Vans, I chose the later due to its modern design and latest electronics. Furthermore I have the option to add full trailer code diagnostics when I see fit.”
