Focus On: Utility Trailers
Scheduling several jobs per day for your crews will earn you significant profits, but you won't see a penny of it if you don't have reliable transportation for your equipment. Utility trailers allow you to transport all of the necessary equipment from each work site and the smaller ones make it convenient to carry smaller loads to locations where only utility vehicles can drive. If you need more information about the following utility trailers, use the reader service numbers provided at the end of each product description.
THE ADVANCE METALWORKING CO.
The Lo Riser Trailer from The Advance Metalworking Co. features a 74-inch × 11-feet, 4-inch load-carrying platform that can be hydraulically lowered to ground height. With a flip of the control switch, you control the raising and lowering of the trailer. The built-in ramp allows smooth, drive-on access without any crown point to fight for quickly loading or unloading cargo or equipment. When lowered, the trailer allows a minimum 5-degree angle ideal for low ground clearance or reduced gradeability. Offering a low GVWR or 7,950 pounds and maximum payload capacity of 6,000 pounds, this trailer provides approximately a 3 to 1 payload to trailer weight ratio.

Up-N-Atom Inc. introduces The Retriever, which is a patented truck bed that helps transport heavy equipment. An air-operated, curved and hinged design reduces deck weight, creating greater payload capacity. Its shallow loading angle — as low as 10.8 degrees — allows equipment to be driven aboard while the curved shape eliminates break over damage. The Retriever permits smaller vehicles to move heavier payloads — non-CDL trucks can handle as much as 13,000 pounds and tandems a full 30,000 pounds.
