Swift Built Trailers
It’s time to get Punchy! Punch Hole siding with our in-house corrugated side sheets creates a versatile siding for a livestock trailer, by corrugating the metal and making the punch holes, the steel is actually strengthened in this process through the corrugation. The punch hole siding is perfect for the rancher who lives in a hot climate but also wants to keep the public eye off their cattle and keep them cooler at the same time.
The Swift pipe trailer revolution continues as Swift Trailers introduces the Punched Side option –
24’ punch sided stock combo.
“We started Swift Trailers 6 years ago to be the best in a crowded livestock trailer industry,” said Swift Trailers CEO and managing director, John Murdock. The pipe steel trailers were started to fill a need in the industry. “This style of trailer is rugged and fully suits the needs of ranchers. Our trailer was designed to never see an easy day on the ranch and to live a hard life. It takes being a tough person to be a rancher, and a rancher needs a tougher trailer.”
“All along the way, our motto has been to listen to the customer. The success of the company has been built on the partnership between our dealers, friends, and customers. Piece by piece we continue to improve our trailer with feedback from ranchers who use the trailer.”
The company continues to test and work on new options and designs based on the needs of the customer. “The Punch Side design is important for those haulers requiring more air flow,” explained John. “This concept was born in the hot humid south where more air flow was critical to keeping livestock comfortable.” Along with that, the limited rattle concept has also been incorporated into the New Cattle Puncher Swift model. “As on all of our Swift Trailers, we hand corrugate the side sheets in house – now we punch the sides in house as well.” Corrugating the side sheets increases the strength of the sides.
“Even as we continue to grow bigger and better we have not forgotten our roots. Swift Built was started by people who saw the need for an affordable trailer that could handle any job, whether that’s hauling horses to the branding, taking two track roads to your pasture, or going off road and finding that sick bull, we just want to build the perfect trailer for you that will hold up to the hardest conditions.”
The basic sizes of Swift Trailers has expanded in the last two years to expand on the standard 6.5’ wide to now include 5’, 6’, 6.5’, 7’, and 8’. The revolutionary powder coat application is second to none as is the laser cut assembly process.
The new 2021 punch side will be showing up on dealers’ lots soon.
