Bateson PT56 Hydraulic Tilt Trailer

16′ x 7′ Triple Axle Multi Purpose Hydraulic Tilt Trailer

The PT56 is the most popular model in the range, it is a true multi purpose trailer without compromise. The low deck height and hydraulic tilt makes loading machines and cars safe and easy. The three axles are rated at 1500 kg each (4.5 tons total). The trailer is plated at the legal maximum of 3500 kg. gross but can be plated down for use with vehicles with a lower permitted train weight.

All six wheels have auto reversing overrun brakes and remain on the ground when tilted. The main chassis runners incorporate the outer sections of the floor which increases the strength and reduces the deck height and unladen weight. Tyre grips and load securing points are cut into this section which are easy to use even with the steel sides fitted. The optional sides are in three pieces each side and are removable with lift out posts. The hinged rear ramp is 75 cm high and provides a constant loading angle. As an alternative two slide under loading ramps are available as a free option.

The body is 2.1 metres (6.88 FOOT) wide as standard but can be increased to 2.3 (7.54 FOOT) metres or the maximum 2.5 (8.2 FOOT) metres to special order.
