Our General Duty, or garden trailer as it is often called, was purchased new in 2011 from Ifor Williams. It is approximately 8ft long by 4ft wide (please see exact measurements in table below) unbraked and has a single axle making it light and easy to move around, but still being tough and very adaptable to be able to withstand any type of load up to 750kg-1000kg (1 tonne).
Like all Ifor Williams trailers it has a galvanised chassis and tow bar. It has fixed front and side lower panels to approximately 1ft high, with a higher drop down rear ramp (tail bar) for easy loading. The ramp also has a chequered plate base for better grip and there a leg (prop stand) where the jockey wheel would be.
A particular feature of the General Duty trailer is that is it is provided by JB Trailer Hire with three additional mesh sides (weld mesh panels) creating a cage effect, giving the trailer more height (approximately 3ft in total), for larger loads (these are removable if not required). This cage, as well as the hooks on the outside of the trailer provides ample positioning to secure tie down straps, bungee straps or ropes.
TIE DOWN STRAPS ARE AVAILABLE TO HIRE FOR THIS TRAILER FOR £10 PER HIRE.
The spare wheel is located at the front of the trailer next to the tow bar neatly tucked away and we have also provided the trailer with a number plate case, taking away the need for screws or stickers. Your own number plate slots neatly inside. We will provide you as standard with a universal coupling lock while on hire, but the tow bar is lockable too.
As well as all the fantastic features this trailer provides, we also have a WATER PROOF CANOPY AVAILABLE TO HIRE FOR £10 per hire. This fits neatly over the top of the weldmesh sides, with a zip each side of the rear panel for continued access into the trailer from the drop down tail bar.
Galvanised Steel racks are now available to support and carry motorbikes within this trailer. Two racks of 2m long can be positioned for you on the floor of the trailer, these come with a wheel hoop at one end which can be adjusted to suit the length of motorbike for stable transportation. The motorcycle can be locked to this wheel hoop to help against theft. Suitable for Road Bikes, Trial Bikes, Scooters, Motorbikes, Enduro Bikes, Motorcycle, Scooter, Dirt Bikes, Trial Bikes, Push Bikes, Scramblers, BMX bikes, etc.
