RSA say that any trailer with a total mass over 3500kg must have independent braking.
I don’t do a lot of trailer work on the road myself but I reckon I have gone over that a few times drawing clay fertilizer etc. But I can’t see myself piping up an hydraulic braking system on my old trailer.
The plate on my tractor says maximum permissible weight of trailers is 11,700 kg.
Wondering is that related to the drawbar pull of the tractor or is that the limit the tractor brakes can handle on its own.
Thread title should be pulling trailers.Sorted.G.
