Trailer Selector

TRT has developed this simple and easy to use trailer selector table. All you need to know is the estimated size of the payloads to determine the best trailer for your operation.

 

We have developed this simple and easy to use trailer selector table. All you need to know is the estimated size of the payloads (even future payloads). This trailer selector is designed to give you an indication of what type of trailer/low loader can work for your operation. There are plenty of options and variables that can change requirements and payloads so our expert team is here to help you. 

The trailer selector is designed as a guideline only. We will work with you to determine the detailed requirements, available options, and your application to give you a detailed quote.

If you are still unsure of the right option, we are here to help.

 


Low Loaders Australia

Below is a table to guide your selection of the right low loader. All you need to know is the estimated size of your payloads and the tare of your Prime Mover. Options, features, specifications, and drawings are available from the links on the right-hand column.

  • Based on a Queensland Single Permit Trip - unless otherwise specified
  • Adjust the payload tare with your prime mover tare as required

Once you have found an option or options that match your payloads, get in touch and we can work through detailed requirements, specifications and a quote with you. If you are still unsure of what you need, no problem, we are here to help
