Ellebi Trailer

I have one of these Model LBN 720. It has hinged towbar, see pic at bottom of the following page. Also has trailing link type suspension. I have not yet used the trailer. Does anyone have any experience of this make or type of trailer and in particular the folding feature. It appears to be very well made.

Thanks.

Ellebi

this trailer is a very good one, very popular in Italy where it is built.

We don't find it in France, because of out-of-age regulations ... EC exists, but not for all products made in EC.
French trailers in France, italian ones in Italy, german ... unless the manufacturer pays enough to get the local approvals.
So it is impossible to get disk brakes, which are allowed in Belgium, England

Hi Linda,
Ellebi is a well known manufacturer of trailers and farm equipment in north Italy.
I have a 1989 LN 570, with a total weight of 570kg and a load of 430kg.
Last Friday i went to Italy to pick up a Avon Searider 5,4 .
Sometimes, i forgott to have a trailer behind me and made up to 140km/h.
It runs very smooth behind. The only problem with the elder models like mine
is to get brake parts. They are only availible at Ellebi.

Update
Stripped hubs brakes etc. and found everything in great condition, except for a few cobwebs, but went ahead and repacked the hubs anyway with waterproof grease. This trailer is built like a brick s/house.
Being not familiar with overrun brakes w. handbrake so Googled and found the following.
http://www.ntta.co.uk/law/servicing/...djustments.htm

Excellent info. and a lot more to choose from on the home page.
Discovered a useful trick in the process. I wanted to make sure the hubs were fully packed and I have a grease nipple on the dust covers ( no bearing buddys) I did not want to empty out my greasegun to change grease. I ladled lot's of grease into the hub and dust cover and started to tap the dustcover back into place. It would not go all the way back in because the inside had too much grease. kept tapping with a mallet for a few mins. and then removed the grease nipple and a nice squirt of grease came out. wipe off and tap dust cap fully home and replace nipple. These hubs are now full, unless there is an air bubble in there!.

Don't know if they have your brake system, but Champion Trailers have quite a bit of info on their website.
