Komatiq Trailer Sleds
We have manufactured these in various sizes to customers requirements, from 2.0 m (6 ft 6 ins) X 60 cms (2 ft), to the large 4.5 m (14 ft 9 ins) X 2.2 m (7 ft 3 ins) shown, depending on weight and type of load.
They have also been made as a ‘flatpack’ (see photos below) – the one shown below takes around one hour to bolt together in the field. And this allows significant saving on shipping costs.
Towing A-frames are available, and are detachable, or can be stored up when parked. Alternatively, towing with ropes may be appropriate.
Construction varies depending on size, but the larger sleds may be a ply box section with the sides, glued and screwed. Alternatively they may be solid glued softwood, as with the flatpack sled shown below. The runners are shod with UHMW polyethylene, the standard material used for all our trailer sleds.
Unless they are ‘flatpacked’ and bolted together, the lateral ash wood slats are lashed with polyester cord, with all wood parts liberally treated with linseed oil.
