How does a low loader work?

1. Low loader trailers have flatbed, concave beam and tire exposed structures, and the longitudinal beams are straight or gooseneck. The frame is stepped, and the cross section of the longitudinal beam is I-shaped, which has the characteristics of high rigidity and high strength.

2. The main plane of the frame and cargo platform is low, which ensures the stability of transportation, and is suitable for carrying all kinds of construction machinery, large equipment and steel.

3. It adopts 3 axle balanced, 2 axle balanced or rigid suspension, with mass balance blocks installed between the front and rear leaf springs, which can change the deflection of the front and rear leaf springs by the same amount and balance the forces on the front and rear axles;

4. The low loader trailer series products are suitable for a variety of mechanical equipment, large objects, road construction equipment, large tanks, power station equipment and machinery. They are widely used, efficient and fast. The whole low load trailer adopts advanced computer-aided design software, which is optimized for flexible and diverse design. The load-bearing surface of the frame is designed according to user requirements to meet the transportation of various special goods.

5. Trailers are divided into semi-trailers and full-trailers. The semi-trailer axle is placed behind the center of gravity of the vehicle (when the vehicle is evenly loaded) and is equipped with a coupling device that can transmit horizontal or vertical force to the tractor. The front part of the carriage rests on the pallet of the tractor. low loader trailers are generally under 13 meters. The load of the trailer is fully borne by itself, and it is connected with the locomotive only by hooks. The locomotive only provides power to help the lowbed full trailer overcome the frictional resistance of the road. It can stand upright on its own tires. Generally around 6.5 meters.

What are the factors affecting the passability of lowbed trailers?

Semi trailer theory research shows that the passability of a lowbed trailer refers to the ability of a lowbed trailer to pass through various road conditions at a sufficiently high average speed under a certain load. 

There are many influencing factors for lowbed trailer passability. From the perspective of giving full play to the power of the drop deck trailer, driving speed, car wheels, differentials, driving methods, etc. have an impact on passability; from the perspective of the vehicle technical structure, the minimum ground clearance of the step deck trailer, Longitudinal passing radius, lateral passing radius, minimum turning diameter, etc., reflect the passing capacity of the lowbed trailer; from the perspective of highway technical indicators, the carrying capacity, slope, bend radius and clearance of the highway limit the passing of the drop deck trailer.

Heavy-duty low loader trailer transportation due to their ultra-long, ultra-wide, and ultra-high characteristics, determine that they are different from ordinary vehicles during transportation, especially in terms of passability, the strength, clearance, and technology of roads, bridges, and tunnels along the way. The conditions have special requirements.

Engineering practice shows that during heavy transportation, air obstacles, road or bridge cargo restrictions, obstructions on roads and facilities above, etc. often impede the passage of transportation.
