Trailers for sale at affordable prices
Both trailers and semi-trailers are widely used for load transportation and have similar design, which consists of a load-carrying platform, fixed on the chassis with one or several axles. However, a critical role in the application of these vehicles plays the difference in the way trailers and semi-trailers are attached to a truck.
A trailer is connected to a truck or semitrailer with a tow device and shaft. The cargo weight totally lays on the wheels of the trailer, which results in the reduction of the payload capacity of a trailer in comparison with a semi-trailer. However, trailer maybe hooked to a semitrailer to create truck – semitrailer – trailer combination, having maximal GVW possible. Besides, such a coupling mechanism can be connected not only to tractor units (as it happens with semitrailer), but also to trucks and agricultural tractors. According to the type of load, there are several variants of a load-carrying body, which can be made of different materials.
