What is A Low Loader?

A low loader, also known by various other names, is a specialised type of trailer designed for transporting heavy and oversized loads, typically machinery, equipment, or industrial components. It is characterised by its low deck height, allowing for the easy loading and unloading of tall or heavy cargo. Some other names commonly used for a low loader include:

  1. Lowboy Trailer: This term is frequently used in North America to refer to a low loader.
  2. Float Trailer: In some regions, particularly in the UK and Australia, a low loader may be referred to as a float trailer.
  3. Drop Deck Trailer: The deck of a low loader is often dropped, creating a lower profile and facilitating the transportation of taller items.
  4. Double Drop Trailer: This refers to a low loader with a deck that drops both in the front and rear, providing even more space for tall cargo.
  5. Lowbed Trailer: Similar to lowboy, this term is often used interchangeably with low loader in various regions.
