Tip Trailer wheel options
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.

LED tail lights
Silage cage complete with mechanical or hydraulic
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.
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.

Sprung draw-bar

Reduce shock loading on your tractor.

A sprung draw-bar ensures shock loading on the tractor draw-bar is reduced, ensuring a smooth power transfer from tractor to trailer and greater operator comfort.

Heavy pivot plates, stress relieved coil springs and greaseable high tensile pins ensure long life and low maintenance.

Supplied as standard fitment on HD Series models and available on all Contractor Series trailers except the 8 Tonne model.
