1. What is a lowboy trailer?

A  lowboy is a type of trailer that has features of a semi-trailer combined with a double-level drop system.

semi lowboy trailers are often utilized for transporting heavy machinery, such as bulldozers, excavators, backhoe loaders, and other types of heavy equipment.  Items that do not fit onto a flatbed trailer or a lowbed trailer can typically be hauled via a lowboy trailer for sale.

Oversized items such as heavy machinery can more easily be loaded onto lowboy trailers because the deck can be lowered to near-ground level.

Most lowboy trailers are operated using hydraulic systems, with hydraulic rams lifting the rgn trailer for sale to meet the unit after loading.  Semi-trucks tow lowboy trailers, which are equipped with air brakes.

2. What does a lowboy trailer look like?

A lowboy is a semi-trailer with two drops in deck height: one right after the gooseneck and one right before the wheels. This allows the deck to be extremely low compared with other trailers.

Lowboy trailers have a lower cargo platform that is positioned lower than the rear half of the trailer. This is known as a concave beam or a staircase structure. These trailers have a high degree of stability, as the staircase lowers the height of the center of the cargo platform. Lowboy trailers are generally used to move heavy equipment and other cargo that has a high height.

Gooseneck lowboy trailer features an adjustable gooseneck. This allows heavy equipment to be loaded onto either the front of the trailer. The adjustable gooseneck makes loading equipment from the front far easier. In addition, once the gooseneck is reattached, it will ensure that any items on the trailer will stay in place.

5. How does a lowboy work?

There are the major force-transmitting regions of RGN lowboy trailer. One of them is the main coupling responsible for transmitting the fundamental longitudinal towing forces between the trailer and the gooseneck. This coupling works as a single point in a force couple to keep the trailer frame and the gooseneck in their desired relative positions. 

There is yet another force vector of the same force couple usually transmitted through the thrust blocks in the back of the gooseneck. This essentially is a bearing surface of the lowboy equipment trailers frame at a point spaced backwardly. Hydraulic pressure is then supplied to the bottom part of the ram cylinders to facilitate the retraction of the rods. This creates a hydraulic lock between the trailer bed and the gooseneck. A lock pin is then used to make a positive link between the yoke pocket and the T-bar yoke.

Generally, this forms a positive connection from the yoke pocketed located in the trailer bed frame to the hydraulic ram anchor feature of the gooseneck. The effect caused helps in holding the thrust blocks tightly in position.

The safety hooks are engaged safely with their respective pins and the lock pins are used to keep the two key coupling hooks in a tight inter-fitting connection to prevent any accidental release.

During coupling and uncoupling, the lowboy trailer for sale assembly is let to a lowered position. During uncoupling, the safety pin handle gets puled and locked open to let the safety pin detach the T-bar yoke free from the yoke pocket.

The control lever for the hydraulic ram feature on the other hand is maneuvered to provide hydraulic pressure fluid inside the dram in order to lift the thrust blocks somewhat clear off their sitting positions on the main beam.

After achieving this, the lock finger gets retracted and the crank handle then is swung in an upward manner to anchor the safety hooks and the thrust blocks upwardly. Once this is attained, the lever is then locked in position through the lock finger that is fit in an upper coupling hole for the same.

Next, the hydraulic ram feature gets extended further to facilitate a further gooseneck rotation with respect to the RGN lowboy trailer bed. This is done to facilitate the withdrawing of the two lock pins that are engaged with the hooks.

The pins get swung in an upward manner through the use of the crank handle. On achieving this, the hydraulic pressure in the ram gets reversed hence allowing the pressure to go down in the cylinders’ bottom chamber. This action slowly lowers the gooseneck and the trailer bed to the ground.

You can choose to place a removable support block in between the trailer frame and the gooseneck beam in order to keep the gooseneck slightly off the ground surface. It is at this point when you can move the tractor away in order to give room for loading. 

 

And we have made a video of the specific operation steps of the detach trailer for sale for you, such as how to separate the gooseneck from the body, how to adjust the gooseneck height, etc.

6. How do you disconnect a lowboy trailer?

When preparing to remove the gooseneck, you must first link the towing pin with the towing saddle. There are many types of removable gooseneck lowboy trailers. Most split gooseneck operating principles are the same. The following are the steps for detaching the gooseneck of our mining lowboy trailer for your reference:

Step 1: Remove the positioning pin and the air pipe and wire connection

Step 2: As the gooseneck height decreases, the bottom angle of the front end of the rgn trailer for sale lowers to the ground and rests on the ground. Once all the linkages have been safely removed, lower the cargo platform.

Step 3: Drive the gooseneck with the truck and drive the tractor far enough away

Step 4: After driving off the truck, you can now load comfortably from the front of the lowboy equipment trailers bed.

7. How to choose the right lowboy trailer?

If you are in the market for a lowboy trailer, you likely have a lot of questions about how to choose the right mining lowboy trailer for your business.  After all, a lowboy trailer is a significant investment.  Purchasing the wrong one can not only cost you in the long-term, but it may also have an immediate impact on your business if you are unable to use it to haul heavy equipment and fulfill customer requests.

To avoid these consequences, take some time to research lowboy trailers in advance.  Understanding the best trailer for the type of work that you do can help you avoid trailer failures.

Material of detach lowboy for sale:

Lowboy trailers are used for the transportation of heavy equipment and other items.  As such, they should be made of a material that can withstand the weight of this type of cargo.  Typically, mining lowboy trailers are made out of steel or aluminum.  The preferred choice is high-strength steel.

Lowboy semi trailer main beam of lowboy trailer manufacturers - TITAN is made of HG60 high-strength structural steel. The yield strength of HG60 steel is ≥ 620MPa, which is more durable and stronger than ordinary steel. Its bearing capacity is 5 times of that of Q345 steel detach lowboy for sale.

Suspension Options of mining lowboy trailer:

When choosing lowboy trailer manufacturers, you will have multiple options for a suspension system.  This includes a mechanical, air ride and single point.  The type of suspension used will primarily depend on the weight capacity of the detach lowboy for sale.

Mechanical suspensions involve a series of reaction arms that keep the axles horizontal at all times.  This makes mechanical suspensions highly stable, with load distribution remaining constant.  Mechanical suspensions are best used for heavy-duty trailers.  They are both inexpensive and reliable, as well as easy to maintain.

An air ride suspension is lighter than other type of suspension.  It also offers good stability, and is more flexible than other options because the stiffness of the spring adjusts to the weight of the cargo.  This type of suspension offers better fuel economy and longer tire life.  In addition, reduced vibration leads to less wear and tear on the lowboy equipment trailers.  The biggest drawback to air ride suspensions is that they are costly.

Single point suspensions are useful for trailers that carry very heavy cargo of up to 100 tons.  This type of suspension has a good damping effect, and reduces vibrations to the trailer, decreasing wear and tear on the lowboy. However, single point suspensions are costly.
