Drop Deck Tilt – 3000 Series
Pan Design | Ultra Low Deck | Drop Axle  | Angle Frame

We manufacture tilt trailers in all the most popular deck sizes, axle capacity, and styles. The 3000 Series is our most popular tilt deck trailer. This series of trailers are designed for easy loading. By eliminating the ramps, tilt deck trailers provide an easier way to load and unload equipment in less space, and are ideally suited for construction equipment that may require low ground clearance.

Cronkhite tilt deck trailers are engineered with a pivot tilt point strategically located under the deck. This pivot point allows gravity to gently lower the deck into the loading down position. A hydraulic cushion cylinder provides variable adjustability to the gravity powered tilt operation. A heavy duty locking latch system secures the deck to the frame for safe and secure transportation.

The 3000 Series is constructed out of 7”x4” structural angle steel. This DESIGN creates a +5” pan frame around the trailer. When used with a 4” DROP AXLE, the LOWEST possible deck height in the industry is achieved. Many tilt trailers have 24” to 26” high decks which creates a very high steep loading angle. Our decks are 33% LOWER. This lower load angle reduces incline and ensures easy and proper loading of equipment.

Specialized ramps are available as an option to the tilt deck. This option decreases the loading angle 45% to just a mere 5 degrees. The 5 degree load angle will allow a piece of equipment with very low ground clearance, such as a scissor lift with pothole protection skirts, to be loaded with ease.
