Tip Trailer Wheel Options

There are many types of tyre options available.  They all have various tread patterns and ground pressure properties to allow them to continue working in difficult conditions.

Below are sizes and types usually fitted to Trailers:

Hydraulic Brakes

Hydraulic brakes provide operator safety and allow machine operation in difficult terrain.

Hydraulic brakes are available for most machines.  On tandem axles, brakes are fitted to the front hubs only.  If necessary, 4-wheel braking is available.  The drum brakes work off external tractor hydraulics and have an adjustable relief valve and hoses included in the kit.

Braking systems are also available for tractors fitted with factory braking circuits that then operate when the brake pedal is depressed.

Sprung axles
Sprung steering axle
LED tail lights
Silage cage complete with hydraulic rear door
K80 ball hitch
Tip Trailer - Deck Options

The Tip Trailers come with the following deck options:

32mm tanalised pine tongue & groove is supplied as standard. This heavy duty floor is tough and durable and will last for many years. It allows the deck to flex as it moves and won't pool water.
This is in lieu of the standard timber deck. It is 5mm thick plate and includes extra cross-members for extra strength over the entire deck. Thicker plate is also available upon request.
This option keeps the standard timber deck underneath but includes a 2mm steel overlay. It has the advantage of still having the ‘give' of timber while maintaining a smooth, tough skin. Available on tip trailers only.
Silage Cage

Light but strongly constructed to handle years of hard work, Giltrap silage cages are made from steel framework with galvanised panels attached.  They are bolted together for easy shed storage and transport and are fixed on top of the trailer sides with clamps.  All are fitted with mechanical power gates that open when the hoist is raised and lifts over the top of the cage, eliminating gate damage.

All trailers are geometrically designed such that double-acting rams are not required to drive the deck down from the tipped position when a silage cage is fitted i.e. the tipped trailer does not over balance and always keeps weight on the tractor draw-bar.

The Silage Cages come in the following options:

Available for 5-8 Tonne models in the Farmer series and 10-20 Tonne in the Contractor Series. The cage attaches directly on top of the standard trailer sides via side rail clamps. All cages have power opening tail-gates, with extra-high lift over the top of the cage for smooth discharge. Side loading cages have a low loading side on the right-hand (900mm) and come complete with a mesh front the same height at the low side.
Available for the Contractor series. These cages require a self-propelled Harvester or a similar machine to load them due to the higher sides but offer the benefit of higher capacity. They come with full height sides all round and a drop-front with gas struts for assistance when opening or closing the front panel.

Hydraulic Gate Release

Hydraulic gate release.

The operator can now hydraulically trip the tailgate at any stage regardless of hoist height giving complete control over load spreading.

 

Side Opening Tailgate

No need to remove the tailgate when carrying longer loads or if it's not required.  Simply remove the locking pin and swing the tailgate around so that it's parallel to the left-hand sideboards and relock.

Hay Extension

The hay extension adds an extra 900mm (3 ft) to the deck length.  This increases the capacity of your trailer during harvest season allowing extra bales to be carried.

It is also quick and simple to fit and remove.
