DROP DECK TRAILER
The Lift-a-Load Elevating Platform Trailer and Lo Riser Inclining Platform Trailer are both unique hydraulic trailers, intended to replace drop deck trailers, designed to make your deliveries safer, easier, and more efficient. The trailer beds hydraulically lower into loading position, affording one-person operation to safely load equipment and materials.

Nearly one-half the length of the trailer on the Lo Riser or the whole bed on the Lift-a-Load is on the ground during loading, eliminating the need for ramps.
The Lift-a-Load elevating platform trailer (style: drop deck trailer) simplifies any loading or delivery situation due to its unique ability to hydraulically lower to ground height, raise to dock height or any level in between while remaining level throughout the procedure. Essentially a portable loading dock, the Lift-a-Load hydraulic trailer, unlike traditional drop deck trailers or tilt trailers, eliminates dangerous slanted ramp boards and lets you deliver equipment without double handling. At transport position, the hydraulic trailer provides a low center of gravity for safe towing. When lowered, the hydraulic trailer allows a minimum loading angle ideal for low ground clearance or reduced gradeability vehicles such as fork lifts, sweepers, scissors lifters, safes, ATM’s, etc. For added versatility in low clearance doorways or to simply avoid obstacles, the hydraulic trailer or improved drop deck trailer can be lowered close to the ground to gain almost sixteen inches of headroom. The simple operation, unique flexibility and enhanced safety allow for one person to easily load and transport cargo.
