Tilly Pass





The Tilly & NFU Mutual join forces

Over the last few months the NFU Mutual have been meeting to establish the best way forward for owners of trailers insured with the Mutual to meet their legal obligations with the HSE PUWER 98 Regs. 

The NFU Mutual sector lead for Farming and Agriculture David Harrison along with the underwriters are updating the sector through their 300  UK agencies with all details on how to comply by contacting the Tilly Pass to book all their trailers/muck spreaders for an inspection. 


Agricultural trailers legal requirements.

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. 

The Tilly trailer Pass offers the opportunity for trailers to be maintained to the legal standard. An annual  18 point inspection  will be carried out on your farm by authorised mechanics. Upon completion of the test a Tilly certificate will be fixed to the tailgate of your trailer , clearly displaying a Tilly pass unique number. This will be recorded alone with your chassis number for a thorough record of your maintenance. 

To ask a question or Book your trailer for a Tilly,  contact us below or visit the dealer page for your nearest authorised mechanic.

When working under raised machines, jacks should be used. These should be correctly positioned, and appropriate means of additional  support (eg axle stands) provided.

When working on hydraulically-raised equipment (eg trailers) use props. Never rely on the hydraulics.
