The Benefits of Using a Tiltbed Trailer
It can be difficult choosing the perfect Ifor Williams trailer for your project; there’s so many options! While car transporters and plant trailers have their benefits, a tiltbed trailer is a great option for so many reasons. The team here at East Coast trailers are experts when it comes to our knowledge of Ifor Williams trailers, so here are the benefits of tiltbed trailers as we see it.
Tiltbed trailers are nothing if not efficient. Rather than having to put down ramps, as with other trailers, the tiltbed trailer tilts at an angle of around 12 degrees to become the ramp. This makes loading and unloading equipment far easier. Wheeled vehicles can be driven straight on and into the trailer bed. The Ifor Williams CT166 and CT167 tiltbed trailers have maximum gross weights of 3500kg, meaning they’ll transport just about any vehicle. East Coast Trailers were the first company to earn Australian compliance on trailers up to 3.5t without electric brakes. Instead, our range of Ifor Williams trailers use mechanical brakes, which are far more reliable.
The fact that tiltbed trailers are so simple to load and unload also makes them far safer for the workers using them. There is no need for loading ramps or props, eliminating occupational hazards relating to their use. Our Ifor Williams tiltbed trailers have a range of safety features such as;
- Walk on platforms
- Options for added wheel chocks
- Aluminium treadplates to prevent slipping
- Constructed with aluminium to prevent rust and corrosion
Tiltbed trailers are notoriously larger than any other trailers as they don’t use up space unnecessarily to store ramps. Our range of Ifor Williams tiltbed trailers are very generous in size, making them perfect for equipment of any variety.
- CT166: This trailer’s platform is 4.77m x 1.98m, with a gross max weight of 3.5t.

No matter what you need to be transported, tiltbed trailers are an excellent, safe choice in a trailer. Whether it’s a car, plant vehicle, lawnmower, motorbikes, or jet ski, a tiltbed trailer will ensure your vehicle reaches it’s destination safely. Additionally, these trailers offer plenty of opportunities for customisation to meet your needs. You can install dropsides, headboards, ladder racks, or mesh side extensions to create a trailer perfect for you.
