Bri-Mar Trailers just super-sized a way to move equipment. With a 20-ft. (6 m) tilt deck and 4-ft. (1.2 m) stationary front, the HT824D is now Bri-Mar’s longest split deck, heavy-duty tilt trailer.

With no ramps and enough room to store attachments, loading and unloading work or recreational vehicles is a snap, according to the company.

The absence of ramps eliminates navigating up or down them, reducing the risk of equipment damage or personal injury. Space needed to unload also is minimized.

A 4-ft. stationary front deck provides room for attachments or tools. This separate section gives the HT824D dual functionality as this cargo remains stable when the deck is raised or lowered. This is accomplished by a power up/power down hydraulic system with a 20-ft. corded remote; a wireless remote is an option.

The additional 4-ft. length added to front of the 20-ft. bed does not affect the incline angle of the deck — it remains at 13 degrees. With a deck height of 33-in. (84 cm), the deck-over design of the HT824D gives it an overall width of 102-in. (259 cm) — 20 in. (51 cm) more than other tilt trailers with decks in between the fenders. This, plus a GVWR of 14,000 lbs. (6,350 kg), further expands its capacity. It also is available in a gooseneck configuration to assign more load transfer to the towing vehicle.

The HT824D can accommodate any equipment that can fit: backhoes, skid steers, mini-excavators, trenchers, tractors or even classic cars. A full length rub rail with stake pockets helps secure the load.

Dexter EZ Lube axles, electric brakes, rubber mounted LED lights, and a 7-way RV plug are all standard features. A heavy-duty 8-in. (20 cm) thick main frame and 3-in. (7.6 cm) channel cross members support the trailer’s 2-in. (5 cm) thick, treated lumber deck.

A selection of colors is offered: black, red, blue, green, gray or yellow. A two-year warranty is standard.
