Low boy equipment trailer

Low boy equipment trailer

A low boy equipment trailer comes in a variety of sizes. The one pictured has a 50 ton capacity. To get the sheep’s foot roller onto this trailer, the truck is separated from the trailer. Using hydraulics, the front end of the trailer is lowered toward the ground. The ramps are then set onto the ground. At this point, the equipment can be driven onto the trailer. The worker then chains the equipment onto the trailer to hold it in position while he is driving. Using the hydraulics, the trailer is lifted back into position. The truck is backed up and attached to the trailer. This is much more efficient than trying to drive the equipment from site to site.
