Tailor-made for bulk distribution

For bulk distribution of bricks and blocks, there is no better body than a Charlton BrickLite. Typically operating as a 32t eight wheeler or a 44t drawbar, BrickLite can offer a 20t payload for the former or a 30t payload for the latter. And since such drawbars need trailers, we can build those too.
BrickLite is always built to the exact specification requested, including choice of crane and ancillary equipment. Everything is fitted and finished in our factory, giving you a truck that is immediately ready for work.
