Sliding-axle trailer includes new angles, features and applications

The wheels on Trail King’s new Advantage Series Sliding Axle trailer can move forward a full 212 inches, allowing the deck to tilt down and create a 6.5-degree load angle. The low load angle gives the trailer the ability to load low-profile, difficult-to-load equipment such as pavers.

Thanks to the tapered design of the tail portion of the deck, the trailer also can be used to load and haul containers. The hydraulic cylinders lift the deck to a 15-degree angle so the container can be easily unloaded. The hydraulic cylinder system eliminates the need for traveling hydraulic lines, and a flexible track system protects air and electrical lines that travel during operation.
