Auto Tilt Trailers-1 STOP TRAILERS LTD
Auto-Tilt Transporter Trailers
The low platform and shallow approach angle allow equipment with a minimum ground clearance or long overhang to be loaded easily. They are available in two types, the GT models which are low loading general purpose trailers, suitable for all types of horticultural and construction equipment and the AT range which are platform trailers suitable for machines and vehicles weighing up to 2 tonnes.
Batesons have patented the principal of extending the deck rearwards by means of locking the tailboard horizontally; this extends the platform and allows the body to balance over the pivot point at the rear axle. The body can then be tilted to allow the load to be driven or winched on then the body will return to the normal position. If the valve is closed on the pump, the body will remain raised if several pieces of equipment are being loaded. When the valve is released the body will return to the horizontal position.
When unloading, the body is released and the tailboard lowered, the load can then be moved backwards when the body will tilt, hydraulically damped, and the load driven off. If the load is not self-propelled, the body can be raised with the manual pump for unloading.
All trailers are fully equipped for normal use and have a fully galvanised chassis with an 18mm phenol coated non-slip floor and load securing points. Equipment includes a front jockey wheel, auto reversing over-run brakes, full road lights, spare wheel, hitch lock and a lockable toolbox for straps and equipment.
GT models also have a strap winch fitted as standard.
