What is a Fifth Wheel Steer Trailer?

Fifth Wheel Steer Trailers are a tried and true Industrial cart that is commonly used in the industry for transporting bulky, heavy materials around a factory or warehouse. These industrial trailers can be towed solitary or in a trailer train. Fifth Wheel Steer trailers have two distinct sets of axles. The rear axle, the one furthest from the coupler, is a fixed axle. The front axle rotates around a pivot point or a kingpin which is connected to the coupler in which most of the time is hinged to allow for changes in elevation.

When Fifth Wheel Steer Trailers are to be pulled in trains, a rear coupler is incorporated to facilitate connecting the trailers together. The train of trailers are only to be pulled in one direction. Attempting to back up a train of trailers can cause trailers to jack knife and result in overturn loads and/or damage to the trailers.

There is a huge offering of standard fifth wheel steer trailers that can be purchased quickly from a variety of websites including manufacturers or catalog house's.


Custom Engineered Fifth Wheel Steer Trailers

When it comes to In-Plant Industrial Trailers, customization is King. There is a never ending array of industrial applications for these types of trailers, so variety is essential in finding the perfect trailer. That makes it imparative that you deal with a retuptable company that specializes in engineered to order material handling equipment.

Common questions that one should be able to answer before contacting a trailer manufacturer are - What will these trailers haul? What is the required capacity? How is the load distributed? At what speed will these trailers be towed? Over what distance? How frequent? Is there any adverse environmental conditions? Does the load need to be restrained? How is the load to be restrained? Will these trailers be hauled singularly or in trains? How many trailers are to be hauled in a train? Where will these trailers be towed? Is there any space constraints? Will there be any ramps or slopes for these trailers to negotiate? What is the percent grade or angular degree of the slopes? In what direction to the slopes will the trailers travel? While this is no means an all inclusive list, it is a starting point.

Next step is to find someone to provide you with the trailer that fits your application. You may elect to directly contact a manufacturer or a manufacturers representative. In either case, good comunication is key. Before the manufacturing of the trailers start, you want to be sure that all of your questions are answered, that the specifications are clear and you and the manufacturer both agree on what is to be provided. This protects the both of you and ensures that you get what you really want. Common types of spcifications to the industry are quotes with either detailed description or based off of customer supplied drawing. At time of order an approval drawing and/or computer generated rendering to help visualized what was ordered. Once approved a confirming order with detailed specifications. And in some cases a sample is deemed prudent.
