Did you know?
Customers who purchase machinery from non-ADR approved manufacturers will no longer be able to obtain road registration for their equipment. This means they will not be able to legally transport their machinery on public roads.
This has a large range of negative implications depending on how you use your machinery and in what setting. These implications range from potential legal consequences to safety concerns.
The Legislation Change
As of July 1st, 2023, a new legislation came into effect which mandates that manufacturers must be approved and comply with the Australian Design Rules (ADR) to get their products road registered. Prior to this change, as long as the trailer met the criteria set by the inspector, it could be registered for road use.
This shift in regulations means that customers can now only register their trailed machinery if it originates from a road-type approved manufacturer.
Please be aware that The Road Vehicle Type Approval law changed on the 1st of July 2023, therefore all units purchased before this date do not need to go through this process.
What have we done about this change?
As part of our ongoing commitment to quality and regulatory compliance, we have taken the necessary steps to ensure that Trimax has been accepted as an ADR-approved manufacturer and all our new Pegasus machines can be ordered with a road registration kit which makes the Pegasus fully compliant with the updated legislation.
We’re proud to announce that, thanks to our proactive approach, we are currently the only manufacturer in the commercial mower industry that has met the new legislative requirements. This means you can have confidence in our products, knowing that they meet the highest standards of safety and compliance.
