Low Loader Economics
More Jobs – The Low Loader is not just for towing. It’s exceptional design and extraordinary strength and power make it the most versatile recovery transporter on the planet. It’s not just for disabled vehicles and luxury sportscars. The Low Loader is also ideal for pallets of products, industrial materials, forklifts, construction equipment, heavy machinery, and many other practical applications. And, thanks to its rugged durability, not only is it ideal for all of these hundreds of jobs, but it will look good doing them, for years to come.
Less Maintenance – We designed our Low Loader to last, not to need service and repair every time it gets a good workout. And when it does come in for its scheduled maintenance, it’s designed for easy access, so it spends less time in the shop, and more time out making money. Our pins and bushings are crafted for smooth motion and unmatched durability and longevity. With proper care, they can last an extremely long time, and they’re backed with a lifetime warranty. Our bed cylinders work on a triple pulley system, which diverts energy, working like a snatch block. That means the winch doesn’t work as hard, so it will have much better longevity than a traditional setup.
Our control handle is all one piece. Some systems use linkage setups that are prone to failure, especially in corrosive situations. We don’t operate like that. We build it right the first time, so it will last you a long time! Our wear pads slide along the subframe with the bed, protecting both, are 4 times thicker than traditional wear pads, so obviously they last that much longer. When it does come time to replace the wear pads, they are designed for easy access. The Low Loader’s bed does not have to come off to replace the wear pads, so it only takes about an hour to replace them, and you’re back to the road! The same goes for the winch hoses. Traditional build puts the winch hoses in a very hard-to-access tray, makes it difficult to access for service. Our winch hoses are not laying loose in a tray underneath the bed. The Low Loader’s winch hoses are taught, running along the pulleys, so all we have to do is extend the bed to easily access the winch hoses. The hydraulic tank is easy to access no matter what position the bed is in, because it’s located inside the stationary pylon. If your Low Loader’s hydraulic tank needs attention, we can quickly and easily access it, add oil, and get you back on your way. This saves time in the shop, which means lower service bills.
Long Haul – The Low Loader is not just a truck, it’s an investment. The cost of ownership over just five years, as well as the higher opportunity cost for profit, makes it clearly the better choice. The substantial maintenance savings, as well as the higher quality of product and craftsmanship, make it more cost effective to own and operate. Specialty components such as wear pads, pins, bushings, control handles and control rods, are traditionally very expensive to repair, especially if the unit is only a few years old. Add up the five or ten-year operating costs of another carrier, and see if the numbers aren’t closer than you think. With the Low Loader, you’re investing in a quality machine that will last longer, which is always the better option.
