    we were going to get a set of aluminium ramps before we bought it, the ramps were at least 1k, I’ll put a tape against our one and measure the height, it is plated for 12 ton gross, it is a bit un nerving tracking up it but you get used to it, I’d say the front loading ones are a balls of a job having to take it off every time

    My trailer is 1.1m and the ramps 3m, still feels steep enough when you are on them, they are aluminium rated to 8 tons and I'm at my limits to manhandle them on my own.

    I don’t unhitch the tractor just drop the pick up hitch,turn on an angle and you just hop on/off,no ramps far quicker.

    Well wear @towbar , very jealous I think they're a great size for a lot of farms. Never driven that size tacky but if the smaller ones are anything to go by you should have a real nice machine on your hands, the tb125s are definitely the nicest I've hired over the years.


    30 years ago that's how nearly every low loader worked wasn't it?

    Do you tip the body a little bit too? How does reducing the break over angle balance against increasing the overall height?

    Thinking about this and speaking ex cathedra I think you need a hook lift trailer and arrive on site with everything you need.

    We’ve a few jobs in farm but also planning some work around the house and this came up. It is ex hire but apart from bad wear in the quick hitch and poor buckets machine itself seems in good condition. Very happy with the deal seller was keen to move it on and I think didn’t have that much interest apparently 8/9 ton is the new popular size

    Don't tip, just up and over, gotta be dead square because I've only a few inches between the trailer sideboards.

    anyone remember what the balers with the flail mower on front were called?
    Used for clearing scrub land, could bale up small trees and everything.

    Would a flail cutter knock out too much grain?
    Front mower without conditioner and normal baler on the back be better?

    Is a bail trailer similar to a Bale trailer? :rolleyes2:

    I’d have advertised it as a plant trailer.

    I’m still torn between beaver tail single axle and the front mounted ones. I really like the idea of the low floor! About 600 cheaper too. Certainly the drop floors are good value

    The beaver tail on lowish wheels will be fine for loading and unloading
    I think if you have to take off the cheaper one, and be chocking wheels and disconnecting hose and cable every time you want to load/unload, you might be sorry you didnt spend the extra €600
