Big horsebox in a small package!
The Compact Helios 7.5 tonne horsebox is designed with a very high standard specification to have all the comforts of our larger Helios models whilst offering the smallest possible footprint.
To make the Compact Helios 7.5 tonne horsebox as manoeuvrable as possible it is based on the competent DAF LF 3.5 metre wheelbase chassis and has a tiny turning circle of just 11.4 metres.
Through design, innovation and materials technology we have manufactured a robust Compact Helios 7.5 tonne horsebox that combines the perfect balance between functionality, aesthetic appeal and most important of all, a pleasing and comfortable environment for the horses that is safe on any length of journey. Equipped with anti-lock brakes and the lowest possible centre of gravity, the safety-conscious Compact Helios horsebox is the perfect all-rounder.
As standard it is stalled for two of the largest horses or three ponies with an incredible payload of approximately 2.8 tonnes. We can also offer a version to take three large horses with a smaller living area. Working from the ground up, each Helios horsebox benefits from the lowest possible load height and has an extremely low stainless steel ramp at just 0.81 metres (32”) that is almost the full width of the horse area, allowing the largest of horses to load and turn more easily.
The Compact Helios horsebox also benefits from our ground breaking Coat-X Polyurea protective coating sprayed in the horse area and on the ramps. Our exclusive curved roof system flows into the bespoke Helios luton pod achieving reduced fuel consumption, wind noise and vibration whilst increasing the internal height to a massive 2.50 metres (8’ 3”). This provides a much smoother, stress-free and safer ride for the horses. Each Helios horsebox has an auxiliary battery system with solar charging, plus solar charging for the chassis batteries, plus mains hook up with lead and a 230 volt charger conditioner. The horse area has an integrated heated rug rack, air extraction system and an integrated stainless steel safety cell with tubular stainless steel horse partitions and rear horse doors. For added safety the horse walls are double skinned. We also include metallic paint, new upholstery throughout and bonded windows with smoked glass. Each Compact Helios 7.5 tonne horsebox is a totally bespoke build and backed up with our comprehensive two year warranty.
To drive the Compact Helios 7.5 tonne horsebox you require a category C1 licence, or a category B (car) licence if passed before January 1st 1997.
