Holmwood delivers PBS tanker gains

  • Posted on Thursday 23rd, March 2017.

Tanker expert Holmwood Highgate has delivered new Performance-Based Standards approved quad-axle fuel tankers to both Evans Petroleum and Simpson Fuel Supplies.

According to Holmwood, the PBS-approved quad-axle tanker has a total capacity of 48,600 litres over six compartments, which is an increase in payload of 6,150 litres of unleaded petrol per load over a traditional semi-trailer.

Jason Stables, Technical Director Holmwood Highgate Melbourne, said Evans Petroleum specifically requested steer axles from SAF-Holland.

"The payload increase over a standard trailer is substantial, and with our brand-new design using steer axles at the rear, we have been able to build a bigger trailer that doesn’t sacrifice on manoeuvrability," Stables said.

"Now that we have perfected the design, all Holmwood customers can benefit from the additional capacity and ease of use of the quad-axle tanker."
