Used Semi Trailer Flip Axles

Great Western Leasing’s inventory of used trailers includes new and used flip axles for heavy and oversized transportation applications. Available for lease, rental, or sale, our fleet of used trailers is manufactured by the same leading manufacturers as our fleet of new trailers. Our flip axles are inspected by our repair shop and are DOT-ready.

If you are looking for a cost-effective lease or purchase, check our inventory of new and used flip axles.

Flip axles are attachments for double drop and lowboy trailers and are designed to accommodate extremely heavy loads in excess of 55,000 lbs. These open trailers are constructed with a “gooseneck” that drops the trailer height below the level of standard flatbed trailers. In addition, they provide the flexibility to handle additional weight in the loads through the addition of an axle on the flatbed. The axle is stored on the flatbed until it is needed, and flipped down to provide the extra weight-bearing capacity required for the load.

Some of the products and equipment flip axle trailers are used to transport are:

  • Construction equipment
  • Heavy tanks or other military equipment
  • Forklifts
  • Heavy steel coils
  • Transformers
  • Heavy generators
  • Extremely heavy, oversized equipment

Features of flip axle trailers include:

  • Trailer length – 45’ to 53’
  • Trailer width – 96” to 102”
  • “9 wide” trailers – 108”
  • Trailer weight – 8,500 to 12,000 lbs.
  • Heavy gauge steel construction
  • Three (3) or more axles, including a flip axle
  • Fixed or folding gooseneck
  • Mechanical or hydraulic RGN

Due to their heavy-duty construction, flip axle trailers are very heavy and often require overweight permits.

For lighter, longer loads, see our inventory of flatbed trailers and for heavy, tall loads, see our inventory of drop deck trailers.
