Chapter 2: How does a low loader trailer work?

Low loader trailers are usually used to transport heavy vehicles, such as tractors, buses, and special vehicles. Rail vehicles, mining machinery, forestry machinery, agricultural machinery, such as excavators, bulldozers, loaders, paving machines, cranes, etc. And other heavy-loaded goods, the lower the center of gravity, the better the stability and safety, and the stronger the ability to transport ultra-high goods and pass overhead obstacles.

When loading mechanical equipment on semi low loader trailer, the mechanical equipment is usually loaded from the rear of the semi-trailer, that is, the mechanical equipment is moved from the rear wheel frame or the wheels are removed, and then the mechanical equipment is fixed on the semi low loader trailer. 

1. Increase the size of the base of support

You can increase the stability of a heavy object by increasing the size of its base of support. Increasing the size does not automatically increase stability. You must increase towards the direction of the oncoming or impeding force.

One way of increasing the base support is to change the position such that the widest part of the object lies on the low loader trailer platform. Another way is to increase the number of contact points with the flatform where possible.

For some objects, you may need to change the package or change the position to create an additional contact point.

 

2. Lower the speed

Moving an object at a high speed increases its chances of toppling over. Speed does not necessarily affect the amount of gravitational force on an object. However, speed determines the reaction of the object when faced by an external force. If you are carrying the high cargo, walking at a low speed helps to keep the center of gravity or balance point at the same position.

3. Lower the center of gravity

The location of the center of gravity from the base of support determines the stability of an object. If the location is high above the base support, the object is likely to be unstable depending on the size of the support base. 

This explains why tall objects topple over easily. The way to increase stability is to lower the center of gravity or reduce the distance between the center of gravity and the ground. So the tri axle low loader trailer for sale is a good choice, it can make the center lower.

 

4. Place the object at the center of the base of support

The vertical projection of the center of gravity should be at the center of the base of support. In other words, the balance point should be at the center of the base or ground for the object to remain stable.

Placing the object near any of the edges may cause it to fall, especially when the truck and low loader trailer changes its momentum. 

 

5. Increase friction

The level of frictional resistance between the contact point or points and the base or ground influences the stability of the object. When the level of frictional resistance is low, the object will slip or skid on the ground.

High friction, on the other hand, improves stability, especially on a smooth base. Consider the surface of the contact point and choose to package with a rough surface.

Sometimes transporters use sawdust on their semi low loader trailer to keep heavy objects with smooth surfaces stable. You can add any other rough material on the floor or base to increase friction as long as it does not damage the object.
