Help finding a trailer part


Recommended Posts

These people advertise a 'Tow Eye' which appears to be the Nato Ring welded to a long pin, which I guess would normally fit inside one of the moving hitches (swivel or telescopic). You would have to make your own mounting to hold this pin.

I don't know how often they update the webs site, I suggest making a phone call to establish the situation 'today'.

On the site, the complete Sankey 'take-offs' are only £5.00 more, although carriage may be more expensive, due to the weight.

I know the weld on ones like at the top of the second link are available from most farmers supplies. Just need to find one of the correct diameter. Seen them in the Spaldings catalogue

Here is the link

I notice on the aulro forum you mention you have a new trailer like a Sankey. What have you bought?

P

This is mine. Brand new, just stored away :) I've put a 7 pin socket on, repaired some damage from storage and painted the chassis black before waxoyling. Just touching up a few scrapes on the tub now. As I say, it's new so solid, any rust was just surface rust where paint had flaked away or it had been scratched in storage.

I was going to turn it into a camper but...I don't know now (I'm skint/no job so can't afford to do anymore with it) :unsure: Might sell it on at one of the shows. Not sure.

Interesting, The braked hitch looks like a bradley unit, i've never seen one on a Sankey type trailer before. Looks very smart, is the chassis level when hitched via the cross member or slightly nose down?

Again it's an Avonride hitch. The axle is an "indespension" type from Avonride as well. Lighting equipment is "Rubbolite".

Coupling is similar (but not identical) to this one: http://www.towingandtrailers.co.uk/cgi-bin/trolleyed_public.cgi?action=showprod_CCB2000KC&category=689

It's built to the same dimensions as a Sankey widetrack as far as wheels, coupling height, tub etc are concerned. The chassis is different and the parts are commonly available "modern" bits. It has a 1300kg Gross weight as well, so I think that gives me 1000kg load capacity (need to get to a weigh bridge).

It is HEAVY and rather high :blink: I sits just level, maybe very slightly nose down on a Defender when empty. When I get it hitched to the Disco it'll be a bit lower at the front but not by much.

Cheers, Martin
