  • Rebuildable arm cylinders with 1 1/2" mounting pins

Are Onken’s trailers available with stainless steel?

Onken's recycling trailers are manufactured with Corten steel floor and sides with stainless steel water tanks. However, customers can choose to upgrade floor and sides to 409 stainless steel.

Can I add an axle and change the length of my Onken’s trailer?

Yes, Onken's recycling trailers can be customized to any length and are available in custom axle configurations, such as a third axle. Onken's engineers work closely with customers to determine the specifications that are right for each business.

What can Onken trailers be used for?

If you need to collect a product in bulk, then an Onken trailer will likely work for you.  From grease, to oil filters, to organics, to glass and other recyclables, the Onken trailer and container combination has been used in a wide variety of applications. The options are endless.  Increase your efficiency by getting rid of your drums or other small containers and switch to the Onken bulk collection system.  

Can Onken trailers empty liquids stored in containers?

Yes! The patented trailer/container system is designed to keep the container level until it is over the holding area of the trailer. This keeps liquids from spilling on the ground or outside of the trailer.
