Light but strongly constructed to handle years of hard work, Giltrap silage cages are made from steel framework with galvanised panels attached. They are bolted together for easy shed storage and transport and are fixed on top of the trailer sides with clamps. All are fitted with mechanical power gates that open when the hoist is raised and lifts over the top of the cage, eliminating gate damage.
All trailers are geometrically designed such that double acting rams are not required to drive the deck down from the tipped position when a silage cage is fitted, i.e. the tipped trailer does not over balance and always keeps weight on the tractor drawbar.
Available for 3-6 Tonne models in the Farmer series. The cage attaches directly on top of the standard trailer sides via side rail clamps. All cages have power opening tailgates, with extra high lift over the top of the cage for smooth discharge. Front loading cage comes complete with a low mesh front, pipe frame and a heavy-duty PVC canopy.
Available for 3-6 Tonne models in the Farmer series and 8-12 Tonne in the Contractor Series. The cage attaches directly on top of the standard trailer sides via side rail clamps. All cages have power opening tailgates, with extra high lift over the top of the cage for smooth discharge. Side loading cages have a low loading side on the right hand (900mm) and come complete with a mesh front the same height at the low side.
Available for the Contractor series. These cages require a self-propelled Harvester or a similar machine to load them due to the higher sides but offer the benefit of higher capacity. They come with full height sides all round and a drop front with gas struts for assistance when opening or closing the front panel.
