low flatbed trailer


Recommended Posts

OK I know ive posted this before but ive made a better drawing

its based on a trailer at a farm where i worked doing spud picking

in the 80s and these trailers where the best for the job as

they would be pulled up the spud field slowly and the one bloke

would lift the potato sacks on to the low trailer pulled by a IH 434 or a

784 flt deck at times

i was wondering if any of you lot had ever seen a trailer like this and who

might have manufactured it Bailey or salop or even weeks as the farm had 3 identical tralers like this

they may have been a little longer in wheel base but

its the basic drawing

the main boards may have run width ways and not length ways as depicted i  this photo drawing

no more sturdy than a caravan these were manufactured & not home made

i will try and make a better drawing but this trailer would also take 8 potato boxes full

as well when they where doing the boxes

would be to the same quality as a bailey trailer is today  :-\
