2500kg Tilt Flatbed Trailer

The  flatbed tilt trailer is designed to tilt at a pivot point behind the drawbar, allowing the bed to tilt and enabling better access to the load area. Choose hydraulic or pneumatic tilt-assist or simply use unassisted tilt. The optional rear drop ramps are hinged on the trailer making for quick deployment, safe loading and easy storage in upright position. Also included are handy features like tie-down hooks, double safety chains and weight-saving chequer plate bed.
