About Sliding Axle and Hydraulic Tail Trailers
Both sliding axle and hydraulic tail trailers make it easy to load equipment and cargo with a lower load angle . A sliding axle trailer allows the trailer suspension to hydraulically move forward so the trailer has a better load angle when loading and unloading. A hydraulic tail trailer uses hydraulics to extend a main ramp and approach ramp to obtain a lower load angle. Heavy-duty construction or agricultural equipment and tractors are often transported on a sliding axle or hydraulic tail trailer due to its low load angle and the ability to handle substantial weight. Shipping containers are also often hauled on sliding axle trailers for easier loading and unloading. Any equipment that has low ground clearance also can be transported on either a sliding axle or hydraulic tail trailer, which is why towing companies and automotive transport companies also rely on these specialized trailers.
Transwest works with these industries and others to provide quality, heavy-duty sliding axle and hydraulic tail trailers. With a variety of options already in the yard, purchasing and financing is quick and painless. Once you’ve become a customer of Transwest, we take care of you, whether you have financed your trailer or need to have it serviced. Our trusted staff is happy to help you and your business.
