Slide Axle Trailers
Slide axle trailers are used to haul equipment. The trailer axles slide forward, allowing the tail of the trailer to lower to the ground. This creates a “ramp” to load equipment on. Nearly all slide axles are made of heavy steel. Slide axles are generally between 48’ to 53’ long, and between 96” and 102” wide.
Although slide axle trailers can haul other freight, Slide axle trailers, also called adjustable axle trailers, almost always haul equipment, and they even have a winch mounted on the front of the trailer to winch up equipment that will not run onto the loadable deck. For this reason they are very popular with tow companies, construction companies, and equipment sales/rental companies. Great Western Leasing has an extensive inventory of new and used slide axle trailers to fit your needs.
Sliding Axle Trailer Applications

The axles on slide axle trailers slide together in a forward manner, in order to create a “teeter totter” for the deck to lower to the ground.
