Anyone ever had a tilt like this?




I like how much open space is on the front.

Looks sweet. Put a bucket on the neck, harley rake forks etc on the flat deck. I don't like tilts though, all my experience is with crappy rental house units fyi

That's interesting, should have called it the "Teeter Totter".

I'm the same way. I've always been scared to use tilts, but the more i look the more they look like a good option.

I know they're only 14k but that's all I need. I don't have any big machines.

I like that. Would be awesome for small sod install and pine straw. Stack the bales on front deck. Put tractor on tilt.

Yup small sod installs. But the dingo on the back.

Drainage installs with pipe and mini ex

Only thing in worried about it getting a machine on it when its snowing

I loved my tilt tag but I got rid of it because it couldn't haul my TB153 (it only had 12K axles). I'm looking at getting a gooseneck in the near future too and a 14K tilt would probably cut it, but it will be close though.

I think a flat deck with ramps is more versatile

I'm not a fan of deck over trailers. I dont like machines being that high up. May be different with a gooseneck but I hated it on a bumper pull.

And I think you should have a full width gate on deckovers. Just my opinion.

This tilt trailer seems like an awesome compromise. The flat deck is sweet. I never really cared for bumper pull tilt cause they only have a 4ft stationary
