Equipment Trailers

Genuine Mega Design for
Equipment Trailers (MET)

Mega equipment trailers are designed for use with off-highway trucks converted into tow tractors. The complete Mega solution includes the hitch system, and modifications to the chassis hydraulic, electrical, braking and computer control systems. Mega trailers are designed to comply with OEM tire and tractor axle load limits and meet applicable ROPS, emergency steering, and braking performance criteria. Our design maximizes the use of OEM content in the design of the trailer, and wheel and brake system components. Mega equipment trailers are designed for use with customer-specific track equipment and are customized to individual mine operation performance requirements.

Mega offers two loading configurations. The MET-RL is a non-detachable gooseneck type low-bed trailer designed for rear loading of mining equipment. The MET-DG is a low-bed trailer featuring a detachable gooseneck to facilitate front loading of mining equipment.

Mega equipment trailers can be purchased for integration with a dealer-provided truck or as a complete solution with a Mega-provided truck. Purchasing your complete solution directly from Mega streamlines the ordering process and significantly reduces the complexities related to delivery timing and shipping.
