Ifor Williams - Model DP - Livestock Trailer
The DP120 range combines a substantial maximum volume and gross weight (3500kg) with the option of a removable container. When the container is removed, the DP120 can be used as a conventional flatbed trailer. Body lengths of 10’, 12’ and 14’ are available, all with standard headroom of 6’. A tri axle is an option on the 12’ model and standard on the 14’ version. All sizes are available with either the standard ramp or with the EasyLoad ramp and folding deck system.
Unique to Ifor Williams Trailers, the factory fitted EasyLoad ramp and folding deck system simplifies the loading of the upper deck without the need to manhandle ramps or livestock.
With the deck system folded away the trailer is suitable for use with cattle and other livestock. All components are stored on board the trailer and are conveniently and safely stowed for quick access. When required the deck can be deployed or stowed within a few minutes without the need for any tools or special equipment.
With the decks deployed the EasyLoadramp can be operated, lifting easily into position, assisted by way of two gas springs. This requires little effort from the operator and stowage is just as effortless. Utilising the weight of the operator the ramp lowers and is simply locked in place.
The EasyLoadramp is used in conjunction with the folding deck system and must be specified at time of order.
Built to last
The galvanized steel chassis and drawbar offer unbeatable corrosion protection. Couple this with the high strength, impact-resistant aluminium side panels, these trailers will often outlast the vehicles that tow them. The distinctive steel roof channels on braked models give a strong and rigid frame. The flooring on these trailers comprises of thick pressure treated timber planking protected by 2mm thick slip resistant aluminium treadplate.
Stability when towing
All of our braked trailers feature the exclusive Ifor Williams beam axle and leaf spring suspension system which has been developed and refined for a safe and stable ride. Similar systems are widely used on commercial vehicles where performance under load is essential. Renowned for its durability and ease of maintenance the Ifor Williams beam axle system contributes significantly to the low depreciation of our trailers.
