    Default Trailer specs

    Hi, has anyone got any plans or specs on this kind of trailer?

    As Vera Lynn would say, I don't know where or when but I have seen this on a plant hire trailer for equipment like powered rollers.
    Maybe thats a route to follow.

    Dixon Bate used to make a hydraulic one for plant - but massively heavier than that one! Possibly had the same design ?

    How cool is that?

    Just a little winch and a lever

    My friend and I looked at it about 20 times and have an idea how it all works, but the front is a bit tricky it looks like. Maybe a shock o something in there and then how would it lock, I would not want all that weight just on a steel cable.

    The plan is to fiddle with my flatbed to get it to do the same, but a plan would be good.

    This is an american guy I think, anyone know of anyone from there who could help out?
