Model TA5 - Livestock Trailers
The TA5 4’ headroom models are slightly wider than the P6 and P8 at 5’, and feature wider side vents with flaps giving increased ventilation. With the low headroom and increased floor area, the wind resistance is minimised when towing, a bonus when travelling long distances. The twin axles provide a maximum gross weight of 2700kg. The rear ramp is covered with grip face aluminium planking and is fitted with a ramp assistor. The TA5 is available in 8’, 10’, and 12’ body lengths. TA5 models with 6' or 7' headrooms are suitable for customers requiring an alternative to the larger TA510 or DP120. The TA5 range with 6’ or 7’ headroom is a substantial but slightly narrower trailer, ideal for navigating rural tracks and lanes.
The TA5 6’ and 7’ are available in 8’, 10’, and 12’ body lengths. The 8’ and 10’ versions have a maximum gross weight of 2700kg, while the 12’ heavy duty version offers 3500kg maximum gross weight.
EasyLoad 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 EasyLoad ramp 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 EasyLoad ramp 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.
