2800 Drop Deck Ramp by Cronkhite Trailers

Engineers and trailer manufacturers recognize that a low center of gravity on a trailer is highly desirable to enhance the towing performance, increase trailer maneuverability, ensure safe loading operations, and the added flexibility to accommodate a wider variety of construction equipment.

The 2000 Series features the LOWEST DECK in the industry. Which is ideal for easy and safe loading and unloading construction equipment like skid steer loaders. The ultra-low deck is partially achieved by using structural angle steel. This allows us to weld the trailer frame in the lowest possible position. Then we use 4” heavy duty drop axles which lowers the deck another 4”. The deck height of just 15” to 17” is achieved. Because the deck is lower a 4’ ramp is included which shortens the distance required to load equipment. This low deck design eliminates the need to have extra long 5’ or 6’ ramps and beavertails to compensate for high decks of 22”-24-”26” or even 28” deck heights. The end result, our decks are up to 47% LOWER (15”-17” vs 26” -28”), and the loading distance is up to 50% shorter – 4’ ramps vs 5’-6’ ramps and 2’ beavertail.

The 2000 Series is a rugged and heavy duty trailer designed for years of dependable use for hauling all your construction equipment like skid steers, tractors, trenchers, rollers, and scissor lifts.
