The workshop at P.X. Farms is now authorised to inspect trailers for the Tilly Pass scheme, the first on-farm facility so far approved to carry out this vital function.
Agricultural trailers are legally required under PUWER 98 Regulations to be in a roadworthy condition – well maintained and in good working order with records of maintenance held by the owner/farmer. However, this can be overlooked with busy farm schedules, and many farms don’t have the experienced mechanics qualified to carry out a thorough inspection.
The Tilly Trailer Pass offers the opportunity to maintain trailers to the legal standard. An annual 18-point inspection is carried out on the trailer owner’s farm by authorised mechanics from a list of approved dealers at www.tillypass.co.uk. Upon completion of the test, a Tilly certificate will be fixed to the tailgate of the trailer, clearly displaying a Tilly Pass unique number. This number is recorded along with the chassis number for a thorough record of your maintenance.
“Farm safety is at the heart of everything we do – P.X. Farms has a Tilly Pass on trailers large and small, including trailed implements, to ensure that they are up to standard,” comments P.X. Farms Managing Director James Peck.
“We are pleased to have been approved to carry out the inspections in our dedicated workshop so that we can ensure that this vital safety check takes place, regardless of our busy workload.”
