Fifth-wheel steer trailers turn by means of a 5th wheel (turntable) assembly utilizing a precision ball bearing for ease of maneuverability.
If you’re looking for a high-capacity trailer with high maneuverability, the fifth-wheel steer is the way to go. With its precision axles and couplers, fifth-wheel steer trailers can handle heavy loads with ease. Fifth-wheel steer trailers have relatively low deck heights and are recommended where load weights are above normal and service conditions are severe. When towed by a tugger, they provide an efficient way to move large loads throughout your warehouse. Multiple 5th wheel steer trailers can be trained together to maximize deliveries and improve efficiencies. Thanks to their versatility, fifth-wheel steer trailers are an essential part of any warehouse operation.
Fifth Wheel Steer Trailers (Series 54) are available in QUAD-STEER (four-wheel steer) or DUAL-STEER (two-wheel steer) with accurate tracking/trailing characteristics for optimal precision maneuverability and are available in load capacities from 1,000 lbs. and up.
Our experts can customize the features of our fifth-wheel steer trailers to fit your needs, including additional deck sizes, superstructure, extra heavy-duty capacity, or other custom-engineered options available for special applications and requirements.
They are designed for:
- Distribution Centers
- Plants and Terminals
Quad Steer Option
The quad steer trailer option is the perfect choice for those who need a tight turn radius and excellent tracking ability. Quad-steer trailers are ideal for maneuvering in tight spaces and are an excellent solution for moving heavy loads while saving valuable floor space. Their four-wheel steering system gives them superb maneuverability, making them perfect for use in tight spots. With true tracking from the first to the last train, these trailers offer a safe and efficient way to move your products.
Four-wheel steering can make it easier to tow multiple carts behind a vehicle. By keeping all four wheels in alignment, the carts can track smoothly and evenly, making it easier for the driver to control them. This can be especially useful when navigating tight corners or crowded areas. Whether you’re moving through a crowded warehouse or navigating a busy construction site, quad-steer trailers can get the job done quickly and efficiently.
