When you work on a farm, regardless of the type of farm you are one you are bound to see multiple different types of machinery being used throughout the property. One of the more common types of equipment you will see around is a farm trailer. Depending on the time of the year, what people are loading the trailer with will change. Throughout October until January there is a high chance you will see trailers carrying hay bales over certain properties. Where other times throughout the year, you may see the same trailers carting soil around the farm.
Being able to use a trailer on a farm is more of a requirement than a nice thing to have. This is due to the fact that the trailer is a versatile piece of equipment that is capable of doing more than you may have bought it for. Take for example, the above mention of using a trailer to move hay bales. With little doubt the trailer will be able to meet this need very easily. But are you using it for hay bales all year round? So, were you just going to leave it in the shed collecting dust when there are no bales to collect? Of course not, not while there are other tasks it can be used for to help you around the farm.
Some other farming activities that can be greatly helped by the use of a trailer include moving fertilisers, seeds, pesticides, tools, and other smaller types of equipment. Even if your farm isn’t that large, being able to readily and easily move items hassle free over your property will make your whole day run smoother. Plus, it will take out the worry of hoping that those items don’t fall off your tractor forks, if you take a corner too fast or go over a bumpy patch on your farm.
However, the question you will be asking yourself is what size trailer will be suitable for your needs. And if you do envisage using the trailer for carting soil as well as other farming related tasks, how much do you think you will be moving? Is it going to be necessary for the trailer to have higher sides than normal, or even a swinging tailgate?
