    I was thinking of purchasing a tilt trailer. Does anyone have
    pros and cons of them.

    I started off with one and got rid of it soon. I had to unload everything on it every time becuase of the tilt. And I didnt like it because I had to get near the back of the trailer before it would tilt. And it would come up so fast it would almost turn my mower over. When I would load back It wouldnt tilt over till I got near the front and then slam down hard on the frame, It just didnt suit my needs. I prefer the fixed bed trailer with a 4 foot gate

    They are great for loading cars on. However they are not well suited for a landscaper. IMO I would steer clear of them.
