Find Pole Trailer For Sale
A pole trailer is used for transporting poles or small logs. They are available in lengths from 29” to 46”, and sometimes longer, and weights of 8,000 lbs and higher. They are most often used for utility poles but are also useful for smaller forestry projects. These trailers are not designed for all terrains though, they often need smooth surfaces to be their most useful. The design itself is narrow and long with the widest part at the rear wheels.
Weight and length are very important when determining the type of trailer you need. You have to take into consideration the overhang and how that affects the weight and tipping point for a pole trailer. You also need to consider the turning clearance you need when traveling with your material. One pole or log is easy to gauge but you may need some advice when it comes to transporting multiple poles and logs. When they are of varying sizes, it is always important to ensure that the poles or logs are secured to the back (the widest part) of the trailer.
You also need to take into consideration the appropriate accessories. Tie-down, padding, and additional bolsters can shift length and weight that changes the entire scenario. Materials are important to think about as well. Just a few wood logs or a couple of fiberglass poles have different weight and centers of gravity to consider as well. When in doubt, seek out some professional advice from someone who regularly uses a pole trailer to help you decide on the best trailer available to you.
