Flatbed

FLATBED DIVISION

We have many flatbed configurations of weight & length. This enables us to haul different load types.

Flatbed:

Our standard flatbed is 48’ long, 8’6 wide and sits 5’ to 5’6” off the ground. The standard weight is 48,000lbs. Legal load dimensions are 8’6” tall, 8’6” wide and up to 53’ long. Anything exceeding these dimensions would be over dimensional and can be accommodated but would require additional charges to allow for permits, pilot cars, highway patrol escorts, curfews, etc.

Maxi and A-Trains:

A maxi or an A-train is a good way to save on freight when you have a large quantity to move. In certain western states, we can haul more weight than the standard 48,000lbs.

  • Oregon – up to 65,000lbs
  • Nevada – up to 75,000lbs
  • Idaho – up to 75,000lbs
  • Washington – up to 68,000lbs (65,000lbs if the route goes through Oregon)
  • Utah – up to 75,000lbs
  • Wyoming – up to 75,000lbs
  • Montana – up to 75,000lbs
  • South Dakota – up to 68,000lbs
  • North Dakota – up to 68,000lbs

The maxi trailer is 53’ long 8’6” wide and sits 5’ to 5’6” off the ground. The maximum weight on the maxi is 68,000lbs. Legal load dimensions are 8’6” tall, 8’6” wide and 53’ long. Anything exceeding these dimensions would be over dimensional and can be accommodated but would require additional charges to allow for permits, pilot cars, highway patrol escorts, curfews, etc.

Our A-trains are two trailer sets with a 48’ or 45’ lead trailer and a 22’ pup. Both trailers are 8’6” wide and sit 5’ to 5’6” off the ground. The maximum weight on the A-trains is 75,000lbs. Legal load dimensions are 8’6” tall, 8’6” wide and up to 53’ long on the lead trailer and 8’6” tall, 8’6” wide and up to 24’ long on the pup. Over dimensional loads are not permitted on A-trains in any state. Loading and unloading sites for A-trains need to be drive in and drive out. They CANNOT back up. Our A-trains are not legal in Oregon or Washington.

Stretch Trailers:

The stretch trailers are for longer loads typically over 60’ to 65’. When together (not stretched out) they are 48’ long, 8’6” wide and sit 5’ to 5’6” off the ground. They can be stretched out in 5’ intervals up to 80’ long. The maximum length load we haul would be 100’. If a stretch trailer is needed for a load, depending on the state, most likely it will require permits. Due to the double frame construction of the stretch trailers, they are much heavier than a standard flatbed and can only haul up to 42,000lbs for a divisible load. Permits can be obtained for heavier non divisible loads.

 

Step Decks:

The step decks are used for tall loads. The 48’ step decks are 8’6” wide. The first 11’ of deck sits 5’ to 5’6” off the ground and the remaining 37’ of deck space sits 3’6” off the ground. Legal load dimensions are 8’6” wide, 10’ tall and up to 42’ long (5’ rear overhang). Standard weights are 48,000lbs but we can haul up to 58,000lb divisible loads in OR, WA, NV, ID, UT, WY, MT, SD and ND. Permits can be obtained for non-divisible loads over 48,000lbs in any state.

The 53’ step decks are 8’6” wide. The first 11’ of deck sits 5’ to 5’6” off the ground and the remaining 42’ sits 3’6” off the ground. Legal load dimensions are 8’6” wide, 10’ tall and up to 42’ long. Standard weights are 45,000lbs but we can haul up to 58,000lbs divisible loads in OR, WA, NV, ID, UT, WY, MT, SD, and ND. Permits can be obtained for non-divisible loads over 45,000lbs in any state.

 

The stretch drop deck is for taller long loads. When together (not stretched out) its dimensions are the same as the 53’ step decks. It can be stretched out in 5’ increments up to 75’ to accommodate loads 8’6” wide, 10’ tall and up to 65’ long. If the stretch drop deck is needed for a load, depending on the state, most likely it will require permits. Due to its double frame construction, it is much heavier than a standard step deck and can only haul up to 38,000lbs for a divisible load. 48,000lbs in OR, WA, NV, ID, UT, WY, MT, SD and ND. Permits can be obtained for heavier non-divisible loads.
