I use a 20ft full tilt trailer to haul my small tractors and plows. The tilting is done with a manual hydraulic jack on the tongue (built in at factory). That manual working of the jack gets old fast for this 75 yr old. Does anyone know of any company that makes an electric powered hydraulic jack for this purpose? I use a elec winch to pull plows on this trailer powered by a spare battery and that is a very nice setup....would like to power an elec jack with same battery. Otherwise I really like my tilt trailer as heavy ramps are a real pain for me.
The trailer company (Trailerman) has no interest in helping me with a solution.

I have an Econoline deck over tilt trailer. To tilt it down to the ground you just unlatch the front and walk down the triler to the end and it slowly tilts down. Drive the tractor on it slowly, and it goes back to level. Latch it down.

Gordo,
That won"t work on my trailer. Two men aren"t heavy enuf to make the bed tilt. I do make that work while unloading tractors, but loading is impossible as unlocked trailer won"t tilt that easily. Wish it would.

I've got what sounds like a similar setup- 18 foot "car trailer" with hydraulic floor jack to tilt it. I never use the jack when loading tractors- just drive the tractor up to the trailer, go slowly forward, and the front wheels of the tractor will tilt the trailer. Drive on, slick as a whistle.

My trailer is a "car trailer" type, with bed between the fenders. It probably wouldn't work with a wheels-under-the-bed type trailer- too high.

You can replace it with a hyd cylinder and electric hyd pump, but it will cost. A pump will cost $250-350.00 and a cyl will be $50-100.00. The pumps are available at Northern tool and cyl. are cheeper at Fleet Farm.

Don't know if it will work with your set up or not, but would it be possible to install an upright piece with a sheeve on top & use your winch to raise the bed? Just a thought, Keith

Can you ballast the rear so it is nearly neutral? Or is the tilt axis just too far aft?
Maybe you should look at the Econoline. They are in Alabama with dealser lots of places. I bought mine here in SD.

I had electric dollies installed on my 5th wheel camper, they work great. Go to a reputable RV dealer and they should be able to fix you up.
