Towing and A-frames

Road transformer exemption

A general exemption has been granted to allow a towed implement – known as a road transformer – to be used on a road or road related area without the need for it to be registered. 

This exemption does not apply to any other towed implement.

A road transformer is a towed implement that provides a quick and easy way to maintain a gravelled road between grader road works. It is made from recycled rail tracks designed without wheels and dragged behind a towing vehicle for removing irregularities in gravelled roads. 

Compulsory third party insurance on the towing vehicle extends to cover the road transformer.
