Hauling Solution for Wide Undercarriage Equipment
Felling Trailers, Inc. adds the Low Pro Heavy Duty (LP HD) models to its deck-over tag line. Wideset heavy construction equipment can be challenging for any seasoned equipment hauler. The equipment is typically oversized, particularly heavy, and unique in shape (length, height, and width). The LP HD series currently consists of 2 models designed and engineered for transporting heavy wideset loads, like excavators, dozers, and other construction equipment.
“As equipment continues to get bigger and wider, how weight is distributed can make or break a trailer. Our LP HD series tag has been designed and engineered to accommodate equipment that has a 2.4 m to 2.6 m wide track gauge (center to center of tracks), which will concentrate the machines weight directly over the side rails, typically 3 m+ overall width machines (some examples: Deere 200/210, CAT 320/323, Komatsu PC210). This has been accomplished along with incorporating the standard features an operator wants and needs,” said Nathan Uphus, Felling’s sales manager.
The LP HD design was driven by the needs of wide-set heavy loads. With the flange-out side rail construction, it allows for optional outriggers to provide additional support and load distribution. Apitong decking is an extremely durable wood, making it ideal for construction equipment applications. The LP HDs are standard with a double incline beavertail providing 12° and 6° load angles, respectively, eliminating the sharp break-over point, which substantially helps load/unload tracked equipment safely.
