Choosing the Carrier for the Tilling Machine Hauling
There are many factors that go into tilling machine hauling, and choosing the right carrier is essential to safely and effectively transport your heavy farm equipment. Let’s take a look at what you need to be looking for and what the process is when it comes to freight-hauling trucks.
First, before the process of choosing a carrier and transporting your tiller machines can begin, the carrier needs to know the following information:
- The type, model, and quantity of the machinery you need to be transported.
- The dimensions of each machine you want to transport.
- The origin of the transportation and the destination.
- Preferable times, dates, and timelines.
Once the hauler gets this essential information, the farm equipment haulers can choose the right carrier amongst the various following options:
- Rigid Flatbed Truck or Trailer: As you may know, a flatbed is simply a trailer with no roof or sides. This is a great option for heavy farm equipment that won’t fit inside a closed trailer, this is an excellent option. While it’s very easy to load equipment on these types of trailers, it makes the equipment very susceptible to weather conditions. If you have weather-sensitive equipment, this is not recommended.
- Articulated Flatbed Truck or Trailer: The same principles above apply to this option, but flatbeds come in an articulated version for longer trailers and better maneuverability when transporting.
- Removable Gooseneck Trailer: These can also be called RGN trailers, and they work well for taller heavy loads. The removable gooseneck detaches and allows for easy loading without the need for a ramp.
- Double Drop Trailer: These trailers are good for heavy farm equipment that you can drive onto the trailer, such as agricultural, combines, and cranes.
- Lowboy Trailer: These trailers have deck heights that drop twice - before the wheels and also after the gooseneck. This makes the deck very close to the ground and ideal for very tall farm equipment.
Other carrier options may also include:
- Step Deck Trailers
- Extendable Trailers
- Hot Shot Trailers
- Specialized Trailers
