Have a Kaufman Tilt Trailer.. Hydraulically dampered soft down.. Looking underneath from the top/it's far too muddy to crawl looks like a 2 way hydraulic cylinder with a top and bottom line comming out running thru a restrictor? Using the restrictor for the cushioned easy down? Anyone debate or try taking that restrictor out and reconfiguring those lines thru a pump and valves while utilizing that cylinder for power up/down?

As long as the trailer structure is strong enough to take the extra stress it will work. Whether it has enough power to lift a load will depend on cylinder size and geometry. Some pics of it would help a lot.
