From mowers to heavy equipment, Timpte equipment trailers have you covered. Our new line of equipment trailers are perfect for everyone. Timpte’s unique suspension system, available on select models, enables the user to raise and lower the equipment trailer by using a remote transmitter or switch located at the toolbox storage system. The patent pending design provides a 4-degree approach angle, enabling easy loading of equipment with minimal ground clearance; such as scissor lifts, sports cars, motorcycles, and so much more.

In 1948 Timpte designed a frameless trailer constructed of steel saving approximately 2,000 pounds in tare weight. These were some of the first trailers that incorporated the frame into the side construction. Timpte continued their innovation into the early 1950's with the evolution of light weight steel trailers. A 35 foot flatbed was designed using high tensile T-1 steel which weighed less than 9,000 pounds.

From 1940-1945 Timpte's plant and people were devoted to the war effort. Over the course of World War II 95% of Timpte's production was under government contract. Trailers of many types were manufactured and shipped to Europe and other theatres of war. Among the units purchased by the Army were textile and shoe repair trailers, laundry trailers, flatbeds for hauling equipment and communication trailers. Timco refrigeration units were installed on bodies and trailers and used to get fresh food to our soldiers.

In 1931 Timpte produced their first semi-trailer which was set on a chassis furnished by Fruehauf. This major product line is still the backbone of the company today. By 1938 the company began making trailer chassis that incorporated a spring and hanger suspension assembly which they designed. It started to become more evident that the semi-trailer method of transportation was going to become an integral part of the modern freight system.

After over 30 years of building their company the founders, William and August Timpte, retired. Their sons, T.C. "Tony" Timpte and C.A. "Clem" Timpte took over in 1916, around the same time American transportation evolved from the horse to the combustion engine for power. The company's skills and manufacturing transformed from wagons to bodies for the early motor truck chassis. Among the first products was a delivery body built on a Model T chassis. Farm bodies, local delivery vans and highway transports followed.

As we celebrate on this , we look back on how Timpte has grown since moving its headquarters to David City, Nebraska in 1980. What started on 28 acres of campus and roughly 53,000 sq.ft under roof, has now grown to over 60 acres of campus and 278,000 plus sq.ft under roof. In 2021 Timpte purchased an additional manufacturing facility in David City (Timpte East Campus) to house production of the new Equipment Trailer product line. Timpte has come a long way and continues to be committed to not only our great customers, but its commitment to reinvesting in rural America.
