Lowboy Transportation For All Heavy Equipment And Machinery
The heavy equipment transportation industry's workhorses are lowboy trailers. They're helpful in a range of industries for transporting equipment, machinery, and goods. These are virtually universally used in agriculture, mining, construction, and freight transportation around the world. Depending on where you are in the world, lowboy trailers are also known as a double drop, low loader, low-bed, or float. They're all referred to as a drop deck semi-trailer. Rapid Auto can haul your trailer alone, or we can offer the lowboy trailer to deliver your freight.
Lowboy trailers are used to transport huge machinery such as bulldozers, backhoes, and dump trucks that aren't road rated despite having wheels. They're built with two drops on the trailer, allowing taller, non-disassembled equipment to ship through low-clearance zones. Freight height requirements are typically 8', which many larger machines may surpass if transported on a different type of trailer. The maximum weight for a two-axle lowboy trailer is 40,000 pounds, however, depending on the number of axles necessary, the weight restriction can be increased to 80,000 pounds total weight and load. We have everything you need to transfer equipment on a lowboy trailer at Rapid Auto Shipping.
