Heavy Hauler Trailers 

Heavy haul trailers (also referred to as “lowboys”) move oversized loads that are too big for road travel without an escort and, in many cases, a special permit. Our selection of heavy haulers includes heavy tractor units, as well as lowboy flatbed trailers with multiple axles. Dragon Products is proud to offer heavy hauler trailers for moving your loads safely and efficiently. Review our specs, then give us a call to discuss your requirements and determine the custom solution for your heavy hauler needs.

Heavy Haulers 101: What To Know Before You Buy

Partnering with Dragon Products is an excellent first step in choosing the right heavy hauler for the job. But before you begin to explore your options, be prepared to answer some important questions we’ll need to ask before we can get you on the road.

 

Experienced truckers will tell you, “It all starts with the load.”  This is the most critical factor when determining what kind of lowboy hauler trailer to purchase, but there are other considerations as well. When you talk to us about the heavy hauler you need, be prepared to discuss:

 

  • How much weight you’re planning to carry
  • The size of the heavy haulage you’re planning to transport
  • Which part of the country you will be traveling through
  • The road conditions you will likely encounter

 

Once we have this information, we can work with you to provide the best haul truck for the job. For example, as you determine the scale of your freight, the size and weight have to be considered together to choose the proper deck size and ensure the safety of your load. And permit requirements vary by state, so it’s good to know the restrictions you’ll encounter on your route.

 

What Is A Lowboy Trailer?

Lowboy trailers – also known as drop or double-drop deck trailers – typically haul tall freight that exceeds the legal 8-foot 6-inch maximum. Designed with a well in the center and two decks sitting higher on each end of the trailer, the lowboy’s drop deck can legally accommodate freight up to 12 feet in height. This enables them to carry bulldozers and other super-heavy equipment. The number of axles will determine how much weight a lowboy trailer can handle. For example, a 2-axle heavy haul lowboy can handle about 40,000 pounds, but the size of the load needs to be taken into consideration, along with the weight.

 

What Kinds Of Loads Do Lowboys Haul?

The types of loads carried by lowboy haulers are many and varied. Some examples include:

  • Giant boilers
  • Chemical pressure vessels
  • Prefab sections for construction projects
  • Power transformers
  • Turbines
  • Houses
  • Carnival rides 
  • Military equipment

 

What Is A Removable Gooseneck Trailer?

One of the most versatile trailer designs, a removable gooseneck trailer has a detachable front allowing the heavy haul lowboy trailer to drop to the ground to form its own ramp. This enables you to drive the vehicle or equipment you’re transporting onto the trailer’s platform. Once you’ve loaded the equipment onto the trailer, you can reattach the gooseneck to secure the equipment. This makes the process of loading and unloading your heavy hauler considerably easier.
