No Ramp, Easy-Load Trailer
“These trailers were designed for anything that can’t get up a ramp,” says Miller. “They also work great for skid steers and other equipment.”
The lowboy bed is mounted on hydraulic lifts powered by the on-board electric over hydraulic system. The single axle, 12-ft. long, 60-in. wide model can lift and carry 5,000 lbs. The 16-ft. and 20 ft. long, 80-in. wide, double axle models can lift and carry 10,000 lbs. Miller is currently field testing a triple axle unit with even greater carrying capacity.
Base prices are, $7,294 for the 12-ft. model, $9,411 for the 16-ft. model and $10,000 for the 20-ft. model.
“Our trailers are loaded with options, including hardwood decking, winches, wireless remote for up and down, multiple tire options and custom colors,” says Miller. “We also offer on-board trickle chargers and solar chargers. The on-board battery recharges through the auxiliary plug on the truck.”
The trailers are equipped with LED brake and safety lights and torsion suspension with full torsion axles. “We wanted to avoid the problems such as tire wear and turn-out that can occur with stub axles,” says Miller. “Our torsion axles ensure good tire life and smooth rides.”
All on-board electronics and hydraulic systems are enclosed in the systems box over the hitch at the front of the trailer. It also provides space for load straps, chains and tools.
“Safety is a big concern for us,” says Miller. “We weld the fenders on for strength and include locks on safety chains so they don’t have to be twisted to the right length.”
