Tandem 8ft by 5ft


The Loader - Tandem axle 8ft x 5ft braked trailer.

Tandem Trailers are strong, robust and reliable with additional capacity.

It's user-friendly for builders' sheets, GIB board and ride-on mowers.

The 8x5ft Tandem Trailer braked has a 2000kg payload.

It ticks all the boxes at a great price point.

This tandem axle trailer is fully-welded, not bolted together, has a 2.5mm checker plate floor and sides, and wraps up the sides, giving additional strength.

This model has lights on the outer edges, allowing the trailer to have even longer loads and drive with the front and rear tailgates lowered. Other retailers have trailers that can't drive with gates lowered as the gate hits the cage.

Assembled with care by our team in NZ. Perfect for transporting various items: furniture shifts, garden clearance, tip trips, sports gear etc.

- Tow bar braking system for enhanced braking ability and safety
- Heavy duty capacity of 2000kg – pile it up high and heavy
- Side running boards and mudguards that you can stand on when loading
-Side and rear pipes for tie-downs
- 14" wheels for increased stability when towing

Make it versatile. Add these on as Extras:
- Removable cage (900mm) with rear swinging gate for loading.
- Removable tarpaulin frame
- Additional tow ball for trailers for bike rack addition
(See Extras for add-on pricing and information).
