The very first lowboy truck purchased by Walter R. Earle has undergone a complete rehabilitation. This vehicle serves as a very historical piece of our company history.
Lowboy truck, also known as a low loader in Britain, low-bed in western Canada and South Africa or float in Australia, is a semi-trailer with two drops in deck height: one right after the gooseneck and one right before the wheels. This allows the deck to be extremely low compared with other trailers. It offers the ability to carry legal loads up to 12 foot tall, which other trailers cannot. Lowboys are used to haul heavy equipment such as bulldozers, industrial equipment, etc.
