There are countless types of comb trailers and trailer manufacturers out there, so how do you find the one that best suits the harvesting requirements of your property?

There are a number of key features to look out for when purchasing new comb trailers.


No one enjoys pain or discomfort, particularly when they are required to sit in the one place for an extended period.

It is therefore extremely important that you look for comb trailers with sprung axles. Comb trailers from Inverell Welding and Engineering are equipped with boogie and tandem rear axles, and all axles are sprung.

This ensures a smooth ride and greater comfort for users.


Protect yourself and your employees by ensuring you look out for a few safety features that may in essence be simple, yet can potentially save lives.

Both Inverell Welding and Engineering and Ashmore Engineering manufacture comb trailers with rear signage that reads “oversize.”

This ensures others can see you from a distance, and ensures they slow down in response.

Inverell Welding and Engineering also manufactures many of its comb trailers with flashing lights and beacons for clear visibility during adverse weather conditions and at dawn and dusk.

Header front compatibility

Ask the relevant sales representative if the comb trailers you are interested in can be used in conjunction with a variety of different header fronts, rather than just one, such as those from Ashmore Engineering.

Comb trailers with this capability have the potential to save you time and money, as they eliminate the need to purchase new header fronts that work specifically with the comb trailers, and it allows you to change header fronts depending on the task at hand, which ensures jobs are completed more efficiently.


During the harvesting season comb trailers will be used on a regular basis, and the last thing you want to be doing is changing tyres.

It is therefore important that you ensure comb trailers are equipped with strong, durable tyres. The comb trailers from Inverell Welding and Engineering are a prime example, as the company supplies them with quality made Sunraysia tyres and rims.

Don't stress that harvesting season is fast approaching and buy the first comb trailer that you see, invest a little time into the process and research what is currently out there.

Compare manufacturers, closely analyse the features of those comb trailers that you feel best suit your needs, and then make your final decision.
