Britains Kane trailers guide

Britains Kane trailers guide

As it stands Britains have five Kane trailers in their collection, with silage and low loader trailers in 1:32 and 1:16 scale respectively.

Based in Northern Ireland manufacturing agriculture and construction machinery for more then 40 years, Britains have now honoured this fine company by introducing their farm trailer range as replica models - available since 2011.

Over the years, Britain have released a mixed lot of toy trailers, starting with the Kane silage trailers to the more recent low loaders for hauling machinery and large general farm sundries.

But let's be clear, all these models are children's toys, sure they can be collected but each and every one of them are for child's play.

Take note, these Britains Big Farm Kane trailers should be compatible with Bruder tractors in 1:16, well the 1:32 range should fit with Siku tractors.

Big Farm Vs 1:32 scale

With six current Kane models in the series, four were released into the 1:32 scale farm toys range, well two were released for the Britain Big Farm tractor range.

With both sets of Big Farm trailers and 1:32 scale available, they do offer features that are pretty much identical, but as you can imagine, they're constructed way differently.

In the 1:32 scale range, these models are all made in die-cast metal, with a few plastic parts, metal fixings and rubberised tyres.

Likewise, this Big Farm trailers in 1:16 scale really allow the detail in these Kane trailers to really shine through.

Be sure to go with either model that is suitable for the child's needs, and just make sure you stay in scale, failing to do so will result in a product return.


Being a larger model or a medium size 1:32 scale trailer shouldn't stop functionality and playability, and they haven't here, with both ranges offering working parts.

As expected all wheels are free rolling, they sit on a light suspension on a twin or triple-axle, with the tyres made from a rubberised like material.

Naturally a bigger trailer will allow more functions to be included, but not so with Britains.

Big Farm and 1:32 farm toys all have the same tipping action, opening tail gate, with a folding down/fold up ramp where applicable.

The simple hole tow bar quickly and easily connects to the corresponding tractor hitch only, but either one is not so compatible with the Britains Land Rover series, due to the size difference - so just buy for tractors.

Comparison chart breakdown

  • Brand: Well the heading says it all, we still include what brand each item comes from, because if this image gets picked up off the web, it would be read out of contents when not read with this article about Britains Kane trailers
  • Item No: Each item is assigned a SKU to help you identity the item to distinguish one from the other when reading the item number
  • Scale: All Britains Kane trailers are featured here from both the Britains 'farm toy' and 'Big Farm' range, well one is made in 1:32 scale, the others are in 1:16 scale
  • Age: Pretty much all Britains toys are made for kids 3 years and up, but it doesn't hurt to let customers know regarding children's safety
  • Assembly: Generally speaking, Britains farm toys require no assembly at all, but this is often asked by customers as they like it ready for play out of the box
  • Dimension: Remember, models in 1:32 scale on our chart above will show measurements far less than the Big Farm models
  • Weight: All Britains farm toys are well built and made to last, so a little weight to each toy is expected
  • Material: As a matter of fact, all Britains toys in 1:32 scale are made in die-cast metal, with plastic parts and hard rubberised tires. Well the Big Farm range are all made in durable plastic with softer tires and metal components
  • Batteries Required: Batteries are not required in the Britains implements and trailers range - this is only needed in the Big Farm tractors and vehicles only
  • Rolling wheels: No fuss when it comes to hauling Kane trailers with free-rolling wheels - so no pulling back or pushing to make them work - simply hook up the trailer to a tractor and away you go
  • Released: This is a good reference to tell if you are buying a model long established in the collection or if it's a recent release
