WHAT STEWART TRAILERS DO YOU OPERATE?

We've a 28ft livestock trailer with hydraulic ramp and folding decks.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE A STEWART TRAILER?

I bought my first tractor drawn livestock trailer just over 3 years ago and in theory the idea was good. Unfortunately I bought it on price, and the build quality, paintwork, axles, electrics....I could go on, were not good enough. You're all familiar with the saying "You pays your money and takes your choice" How true it turned out to be.

HAS THE TRAILER MET YOUR EXPECTATIONS?

We tend to use it mostly for sheep and it's a joy to load/unload (can it ever be a joy….you know what I mean) What features do you like? The height between the decks, the doors and the run up ramp are very good (remember to have the oil pressure turned right down on spool when operating ramp I forgot...no harm done..sheep stood on ramp might disagree)

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF OPERATING YOUR STEWART TRAILER?

The brakes are excellent. You just know you can stop every time and when you're empty there's no locking up. Very stable and smooth.

ARE YOU PLEASE WITH THE AFTER-SALES SERVICE YOU HAVE RECEIVED?

Too early to say ask me in 5 years!

ANY OTHER COMMENTS?

It's a lot of money for a trailer, but when you look at the others you'll see why
