Low Loaders Trucks For Sale

Low loaders fulfil the dual purpose of carrying loads which are both heavier and taller than average, ensuring that a range of equipment and machinery can be transported safely and legally. These trailers can be coupled with standard truck cabs, but they feature a load deck that drops lower after the wheels so that the load bed can be much closer to the road surface. Low loaders can be purchased second-hand, but not before the buyer has checked up on the specifications, assessed which type of trailer is suitable for their needs and compared the various options to ensure that the equipment they need to transport can be accommodated.

Low loaders cross into several other trailer categories, with some models offering extendable frames that can be adjusted to allow for oversized machinery to ride on board. Models may also feature beavertail ramps at the rear, with pneumatic or hydraulic rams allowing this to be raised and lowered remotely for added convenience. Flip toe ramps are not out of the question for this type of trailer, while outriggers may be present, improving stability during loading and unloading. And with very heavy payloads destined for this type of trailer, it is crucial that operators are made aware of the features and benefits on offer.

Low Loader TrailerCheck Trailer Suspension

Another element which requires inspection is the suspension. More affordable low loaders will be outfitted with steel springs, which do the job but may ultimately lead to more stress and strain being transferred to the frame of the trailer, resulting in additional wear and tear. Air suspension is preferable for smoother operation, better shock absorption and a greater degree of real-time adjustability, but it will make the trailer more expensive and could also be costlier to maintain. Some models even feature hydraulic suspension systems, with independent suspension and power steering being the most desirable set-up for larger trailers. No matter which approach is taken, it is necessary for used low loaders to be thoroughly checked over to ensure that the suspension is in good condition.

Many different types of equipment and machinery can be loaded on to this type of trailer, making them suitable for deployment in a variety of industries. From agricultural machines to excavators, bulldozers and other plant staples, even the smallest low loader trailers can accommodate payloads of six tonnes or more, ensuring that there is a good degree of flexibility afforded to users. A tri-axle set-up is normal for small and mid range models, while five- and six-axle models can also be found at the upper end of the market.

What to Check When Buying Used Low Loaders

The weight borne by the trailer frame will be quite significant sometimes, so be sure to take into account its structural integrity when perusing second-hand models. Also check the coupling, hydraulics and any other controls that may need to be linked to the cab. At the end of the day, the type of equipment you need to transport should be used to help you identify the best second-hand low loader trailer for your needs.
