Lowboy trailers are similar to flatbed trailers and popular for their flexibility in what they can haul. A type of semi-trailer, lowboys have a drop in their deck right after the gooseneck and right before the wheels. This design means the trailer is much lower than other trailers available.
Because of its unique shape, a lowboy trailer is ideal for transporting extra tall or extra heavy loads. In general, they can carry 40,000 pounds with two axles and 80,000 pounds with three axles, and haul items up to 12 feet tall.

Lowboy trailers are used to transport equipment that would be too tall or too heavy for a traditional flatbed trailer to haul legally. Even if a traditional flatbed could carry a large item, sometimes the use of a lowboy trailer can save you money since it means you may not have to obtain over-dimension permits.
In practice, lowboy trailers are often used in transporting construction equipment such as excavators or backhoes, agricultural machinery such as tractors or harvesters, and oilfield equipment. The low bed makes a lowboy trailer a good choice for vehicles and machines with large rubber tires that add a lot of height.
Lowboy trailers are easy to transport and require roughly the same process as a flatbed trailer. Lowboys can be hitched to a semi-trailer truck and then transported to a new location via road.
