T-40TA | 50TA

Towmaster’s® deck-over air-tilt trailers offer convenience and easy loading by tilting the bed using air from the tow vehicle’s system. This provides a clean and efficient way of tilting the deck without the use of hydraulics. Approach ramp is standard, air-lift ramps are optional. Simply tilt the deck, drive on or off and level the deck back down. The tilt deck trailer features a single-lever twin-latch system to secure the deck to the frame. The low load angle allows for easy equipment loading and unloading.
