All About Different Variants Of Low-Loaders

A low loader is a semi-trailer where the loading floor is located between the gooseneck and the axle bogy. The loading floor is very close to the ground. This makes it possible to transport high loads. The low loaders are available in various shapes and sizes.

There are many companies that provide these high-quality low loaders for sale. This low-loader trailer comes in several variants, for a wide spectrum of tasks.

Some of the variants are:

  • Fixed Gooseneck – which allows a longer deck length and lightest weight of all lowboys.
  • Technical Gooseneck – Second longest deck length and weight.
  • Hydraulic Detachable Gooseneck – Quickest and easiest to detach but, at the expense of weight and deck length.
These low-loaders are fully equipped for carrying loads that are both heavier and taller than average, ensuring that a range of equipment and machinery can be transported safely and legally.
Low loaders come in a number of configurations and some vehicles can be extended to accommodate especially long loads. The low loader is a designation for a trailer whose main deck height is lower than the rear wheel height of the trailer. 

The low load trailer deck consists of two stages: one from the upper deck above the fifth wheels and the other from the rear deck above the trailer wheels. Low loaders are usually designed with double girders and a movable floor section so that the load can be between the girders.
