BUY -Beaver Tail Trailer.

Hhhmmmm........


The company I have chosen are Titan Trailers and Structures. (Or maybe Titan Structures and Trailers)

I'm not daft or naive enough to suggest they are different companies or even different people, but I'm not sending them money via an e-transaction the other side of the world. I've met the chap, grubby shirt and all, and he seems good enough. More than that some customers of mine have engaged his services and have been impressed with the service and quality of work.

I didn't know about their previous business troubles and now that I do I'm not worried.


The internet is great for this kind of stuff and I thank you for bringing it to my attention.

Cheers.

Hi pete have you thought of having a double acting ram at the front corner of your trailer with a grab hook on the end to tension your chains we have one fitted to the front of our herbst low loader and it saves loads of time when moving loadall or tractors can send you pictures if you like
 
To cut a very long story short, I went with a fabricator named Titan Trailers and Structures in Brackley, Northants.

Main man Peter Reeve came to see me and had a measure up. The three quotes were all very close, Titans being the least by only £200 so that made no difference whatsoever. Thing is with Titan I will get more restraining points and higher spec axles. Peter showed me photos of what they had built before and I also know of other folks who have had stuff built by them. They all said I can't go wrong with Titan. In a strange twist it would seem that Peter supplied the kit form trailer which my brother welded together 18 years ago to make the one I still use to this day.

Peter will visit my yard again and have a final measure up. He wants me to visit their place a couple of times during the build just to make sure everything is ok and that was what finally swung it for me. Whilst I have absolutely no doubt the others would provide an excellent trailer, they were a good way from me and I would have to provide measurements for specific restraining points and other things I want building in. If I got it wrong, they build it wrong and I kick myself for years.

Should be contacting me soon to make a start and he did mention it might be done for New Year.

Thanks for asking.

Pete is a good chap, known him many years now and we have had many things made by him, trailers, bowsers and even our last building. Really do rate his work and always willing to take on a challenge. Don't let the grubby look or limp put you off.

That sounds great and I recall Peter Reeve suggesting something hydraulic for the ramps too, but the Big A has no hydraulic service.
If you can get some hooks put at the front to hook the bucket under, to stop the front moving sideways / forwards, then just have a chain the right length across the back (angled forwards) that you hook in the puh and lift to tension.

If you have no puh then hook it in the normal drawbar and extend the boom a bit?
 
You don't want to be extending the boom at all. Any loss of hyd pressure would mean movement of the whole machine.

At the moment, and on the new trailer too, we have a big lip which the front edge of the Loadall bucket locates into. Then at the back, twin load binders locate into the lifting eyes cut into the sides of the Loadall chassis. Quick tighten of them and you're on the road, no hydraulics, no air pressure, nothing to go wrong.

Thought the booms had anti leak valves so only problem would be if internal valve seal went.
Thats no worse than one of your back tyres getting a puncture and letting your chains go slack?
 
Yes, true, but I'm told VOSA take a very dim view of such things. Comes from some case when a JCB back actor swung round on the back of a lorry some years back and clouted a van. Safety catch wasn't located and hydraulic failure let it slew round or something.

yes you are right it was a ford capri and killed the occupants
correction hit more than one car killed 5

Yes that was it.

When the Loadall is on the trailer, the boom is right in and right down. We even give the lever a wobble when the engine is switched off just to let that bit of hyd pressure go. When the load binders are tight, she hasn't moved a millimetre in years.

Data-linked field boundaries open new opportunities for agri-food sector

Written by Charlotte Cunningham

UK agri-tech centre, Agrimetrics, have used satellite imagery and cutting-edge AI to map all 2.8 million UK field boundaries. Charlotte Cunningham reports. The lack of accurate field boundaries has been a pain point for the agri-food sector since the Rural Payments Agency stopped making these publicly available. To solve this, one of four agri-tech centres that make up...
