Rather than pollute Neil's Gamic thread, thought I'd better start a new one.
Anyone got / had the power deck on the G Edwards livestock trailer?
Early ones were a bit slow, but I understand they doubled the speed?
Any comments good or bad?
Not looking for "buy a gamic" comments for various reasons, not least the 18 month wait. 6/7 months for an Edwards is bad enough.

Got this trailer this summer with power deck. No ramp to lift just the back tailboard to shut the sheep in. It’s very handy I must say, definitely slower now than in the summer as it’s powered by solar panel on roof

Whats a rough price on that.
What speed are the wheels rated at? Will it stand running at 65kph?

Not ever buy a nugent trailer then, the rear ramp is a bitch to lift especially if you have crammed them in and they are all stood with the back feet on it, enough to drive me to drink.

i must not jam them in enough…😂

but the only bug bear I have with my nugent is the rear upper ramp moving so it slips back past the linch pin on the right hand side. Then there’s a gap between top edge of ramp and top floor.
