Glasvan now carrying Etnyre live bottom, heavy-haul detachable trailers

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Glasvan Trailers has announced it is now the exclusive Ontario distributor of Etnyre live bottom trailers and heavy-haul detachable trailers.

Etnyre, based in Oregon, Ill., has been building road construction equipment since 1898.

The Etnyre Falcon live bottom trailer features a 42-inch wide product belt that’s free of fasteners and cross slats and can be replaced in just hours, Glasvan says. The chain system has a capacity rating of 100,000 lbs and features a long-life, lube-free design. The sidewalls of the Falcon are constructed of 10 gauge abrasion-resistant steel and feature a steep wall angle to prevent product bridging and tunneling. The bodies also feature Thurmax HD insulation.

Etnyre’s heavy-haul detachable trailers can be custom-built to a customer’s own requirements, Glasvan says. Models from 35 to 100 tonnes are available with many options. The Paver Special trailer is geared to the construction industry and features a tapered front section for an extremely low load angle. The rear deck is covered in heavy-duty apitong with a low angle loading ramp to allow the owner to load several machines in one load instead of making two or more trips, the company says.

Glasvan says it has placed a large order for quad-axle and tri-axle Falcon live bottom trailers so customers can visit a dealership to get a first-hand look at the new product line. Mike Hignett and Adam Stevens are the sales reps for the Etnyre line and can be reached at 888-GLASVAN.
