Our Hydraulic Detachable Gooseneck Trailers are also commonly referred to as “Lowboy Trailers”. Kaufman Trailers lineup includes a long list of standard features that are sure to keep us higher than the industry in every category except price. With available capacities ranging from 35 to 55 tons as well as the highest quality components and workmanship you can’t go wrong investing in one of our lowboy trailers. Kaufman’s hydraulic powered, self-lifting, self-aligning detachable gooseneck slides easily into the V-Shaped alignment trough. This guarantees the easiest hook-up in the industry. Our hydraulic controlled truck rest provides unsurpassed convenience by eliminating the need to manually block the neck during the detachment process. The custom built U.S. made heavy duty hydraulic cylinders provide the perfect combination of power and convenience. With our increased cylinder stroke you will be able to raise the trailer chassis as high as 24” – 36” off the ground depending on the truck fifth wheel height. Our easily adjustable heavy duty hinged compression block assembly provides approximately six inches of ride height adjustment depending on the length of the gooseneck. With multiple gooseneck lengths available in 6” increments, we are able to help you’re find the perfect length neck to fit your needs. Our lowboy trailers chassis and gooseneck are constructed with a combination of high tensile Grade 100 (T1) steel and high tensile Grade 80 steel. Look at any lowboy trailers that have been on the road for long and you will quickly realize that the cross-members take a beating. For this reason we have elected to use high tensile Grade 80 cross-members as opposed to the industry standard of mild Grade 36 or 50. The high tensile cross-members provide you with long lasting rugged durability in a high abuse area. This reliability is something that Kaufman customers have come to expect. Included in the list of standard features are a lockable toolbox, 14” drop cross-members over the axles, boom well trough and cover plate. A U.S. made Sealco brand wiring harness, lifetime LED lighting, and a self-contained amber strobe light kit provide the ultimate cold weather lighting package. Additional standard features on every trailer include heavy duty outriggers, 9 pairs of D-Rings, and 2” nominal air dried white oak decking. All tri axle air ride trailers features a third air lift axle. Both tandem and tri axle air ride lowboy trailers features a standard manual ride height override.

Similar to our standard log trailer, the Kaufman Trailers Plantation Log Trailer comes standard with a heavy duty, underslung, 4-spring Hutchens H-9700 suspension. Watson single point or Ridewell air ride suspensions are available for a nominal upcharge. The main frame is constructed with two 21” deep, high tensile, fully fabricated main beams and full depth cross-members at each bolster, as well as a fully fabricated, high tensile gooseneck. The most popular feature of this trailer is the 24” drop behind the gooseneck. There is not a trailer in the industry that will provide this much space for loading plantation thinnings behind the gooseneck. You will also be happy with the “dummy” bolster on the top of the gooseneck for hauling your double bunk or short log loads. Our plantation log trailer is the most versatile forestry trailer in our log trailer lineup.
