Pallet Trailer

Pallet Trailer

Pallet Trailer

Does anyone know of a compnay who produces trailers capable of transporting pallets (~500kg, 1000x1200)? needs to be 4 wheel steer and will be towed by FLT...
any ideas appreciated.

RE: Pallet Trailer

Are you looking for trailers that can transport multiple pallets or a single unit?  We had two trailers custom built to transport eight pallets per trailer.  They were pintle hitch and capable of 20K pounds or so.  They're not four wheel steer, but the front wheels are articulated and they can be hitched together.  I don't recall the manufacturer, but I can check when I get back to the plant.  

As a matter of fact, these trailers are no longer in use.  


RE: Pallet Trailer

Hamilton Caster was the company who designed and built our trailers.

Try Talbert Mfg in Rensselaer, Indiana. They"re on the web.  They do custom and heavy duty.  If they cannot do it they may know who can.
