JLG’s Triple-L Trailer Features Open-Air Flatbed Models

Thu February 14, 2008 - National Edition

JLG’s Triple-L Trailer model EC-14 is the largest fully enclosed trailer that it makes, with a 6,000-lb. (2,721 kg) capacity. The trailer’s interior measures 5 ft. 10 in. wide by 12 ft. 6 in. long (1.8 by 3.8 m).

A one-person operation makes loading and unloading any Triple-L Trailer easy, according to the manufacturer. Triple-L Trailers accommodate low-ground clearance equipment, loading and unloading the trailer when it is detached from the towing vehicle, and offer the ability to load or unload the equipment at ground level, eliminating the chance of dropping cargo off the ramps while loading or unloading. There are no hinges to come loose or drop.

Triple-L Trailers also include nine open-air flatbed models, with a payload capacity of up to 10,000 lbs. (4,536 kg). If a flatbed with enclosed sides is needed, eight utility models with payload capacities up to 10,000 lbs. also are available.

Options include on-board battery trickle charger, surge brakes, pintle hitch instead of ball coupler, a 12V winch with remote control, extended side rails, spare tire and bracket that mounts within the chassis width and a full-width swinging tailgate that can be readily removed.

Also available are open-air flatbed models, or utility models (a flatbed with enclosed sides).
