Britains links with Kane Trailers

Firm to produce 1:32 replicas of the trailer range.

Both the models and the real life Kane Trailers were unveiled together for the first time this month at Kane HQ in Northern Ireland.

Kane Trailers, based in Northern Ireland and owned by brothers Noel and Colin Kane, is one of the largest trailer producing companies in the farming industry.

Having realised this, it was a natural step for Britains, which produces agricultural and construction die cast models, to join forces with Kane to add to its portfolio.

The new Kane Trailers, produced in 1:32 scale come with all the detail and accuracy you’d expect from Britains. The Kane 16 Tonne Silage Trailer and Kane 16 Tonne Grain Trailer feature tipping function, automatic opening rear door and rear wheel steering. Both trailers also include special spring loaded hitch for easy attachment to other items in the Britains Farm Toys range.
