A tilt bed is ideal for freights that are difficult to load using a conventional ramp. If you are looking for a trailer with that feature, the Gatormade Tilt-Bed Gooseneck is one of the best options you may consider. This trailer is designed and engineered with heavy-duty components that will last for many years. Some of its stand-out features are as follows:
The entire bed measures about 20 feet, 4 feet of work as a stationary staging deck while the rest can be titled. It’s low profile design gives the trailer added stability. Access to the flatbed is easy using the safety steps and 2 big boarding handles on each side of the bed.
This gooseneck has a 16-foot tilt deck. It is ideal for loading man lifts, solid tire forklifts, low profile vehicles, skid loaders and other freight that ramps can’t handle. The tilt design lets you load and unload almost any type of equipment much quicker and safer. The gravity up and down tilt bed works with dual cylinder dual latching auto-latch mechanism.
Lights and Wiring
All the lights in this trailer are LEDs. These lights have a long lifespan and provide better illumination than regular bulbs. The lights are rubber mounted and sealed to protect from the elements. There is also a work light bar on top of the neck to provide additional lighting when you are working at night. This trailer also uses modular sealed wiring harness with 7-way connector as well as safety reflective marker tape as part of the standard components.
Dual jacks keep the trailer more stable during loading and unloading when it is not attached to a vehicle. The Gatormade Tilt-bed Gooseneck is fitted with two 12k spring-loaded jacks.
As a driver, you can only have peace of mind when you know that your trailer has the necessary safety features that can help prevent accidents. For this trailer, it comes with a complete safety breakaway kit that will immediately stop the trailer in case it accidentally unhooks from the vehicle while on the road. It also comes with electric brakes on all wheels for faster braking power.
One of the best brands in the industry, Dexter axles are known to be heavy duty and tough. They also help make rides smoother. This trailer comes with two 7k Dexter axles.
The Gatormade Tilt-bed Gooseneck comes with four new #16, 10-ly radial tires. These tires have deep treads which allow for greater mileage and a smoother ride. Not only that, there are also 8 lugs installed to keep mud and other materials away from the tire.
