Why We Love Landoll Trailers for Heavy Hauling

Landoll trailers offer several benefits when it comes to heavy-duty hauling, making them a popular choice for transporting a variety of oversized and heavy loads. Here are the key reasons why we use a Landoll trailer for most of our heavy-duty hauling:

  1. Versatility: Landoll trailers are highly versatile and can accommodate a wide range of heavy loads, including construction equipment, machinery, vehicles, and other oversized cargo. They come in various configurations to suit different transport needs.
  2. Ground-Level Loading and Unloading: One of the primary advantages of Landoll trailers is their ability to load and unload cargo at ground level. This eliminates the need for steep ramps or special loading equipment, making the process safer, quicker, and more convenient.
  3. Tilt-and-Load Design: Landoll trailers typically feature a tilt-and-load design, allowing the entire trailer bed to be tilted hydraulically. This feature simplifies the loading and unloading of heavy equipment and machinery, reducing the risk of damage during the process.
  4. Reduced Risk of Damage: The ground-level loading and unloading feature, along with the gentle tilt-and-load design, significantly reduces the risk of damage to the cargo being transported. It also minimizes the need for heavy lifting and manual labor.
  5. Improved Safety: Landoll trailers are known for their safety features, including hydraulic systems that control the loading and unloading process precisely. This reduces the risk of accidents, injuries, and damage to equipment.
  6. Easy Maneuverability: Landoll trailers are designed with excellent maneuverability in mind. They often have multiple axles and advanced steering systems that make it easier to navigate tight spaces and challenging terrains.
  7. Stability and Weight Distribution: These trailers are engineered for stability, weight distribution, and load balance. This helps ensure a smooth and secure ride, even when transporting large and heavy loads.
  8. Reduced Transportation Costs: Landoll trailers can lead to cost savings by reducing the time and labor required for loading and unloading heavy equipment. They can also simplify the logistics of transporting oversized cargo.
  9. Single Operator Capability: In many cases, Landoll trailers can be operated by a single operator, which can further reduce labor costs and increase efficiency.
  10. Diverse Applications: Landoll trailers are suitable for various industries, including construction, agriculture, transportation, and more. Their adaptability makes them an asset for businesses with diverse hauling needs.
  11. Customization Options: Many Landoll trailers can be customized to meet specific transport requirements. This includes options for different bed lengths, capacities, and configurations.
  12. Reliability and Durability: Landoll is a well-respected manufacturer known for producing reliable and durable trailers built to withstand the rigors of heavy-duty hauling.

We Haul Oversized Loads in Illinois and Across the Country Using an Industry-Best Process

Transporting oversized loads in Illinois, like in most states, involves several steps and regulations to ensure safety on the road and protect infrastructure. Here are the steps we take to haul an oversized load in Illinois:

  1. Obtain the Necessary Permits:
    • The first step is to secure the required permits. Oversized load permits can vary based on factors such as load dimensions, weight, and the specific route you plan to take. You may need a single-trip permit or an annual permit, depending on your needs.
  2. Route Planning:
    • We plan the route carefully, taking into account the size and weight of the load, road conditions, bridges, overpasses, and any other potential obstacles. Use specialized route planning software or consult with state authorities to ensure the chosen route is safe and compliant.
  3. Notify Relevant Authorities:
    • We notify the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) and any local authorities along your route about the oversized load transportation. We provide them with the necessary details and coordinate with them for any road closures or detours that may be needed.
  4. Safety Escorts and Flagging:
    • Depending on the size and type of the load, you may be required to have safety escorts or flaggers accompany the transport. These individuals help guide the oversized load, warn other motorists, and ensure safety during transit.
  5. Safety Equipment:
    • We equip the oversized load with any necessary safety equipment, such as warning lights, reflective signs, and flags, to make it highly visible to other drivers.
  6. Load Securement:
    • We ensure that the oversized load is properly secured using appropriate tie-downs, chains, and other securement methods to prevent shifting or falling during transit.
  7. Pilot Vehicles:
    • Depending on the load’s size and configuration, we may need to use pilot vehicles (also known as pilot cars) to lead or follow the transport. These vehicles help ensure the safety of the transport and warn other drivers.
  8. Compliance with Regulations:
    • We ensure that the transport complies with all relevant federal and state regulations, including those related to weight, size, and safety standards.
  9. Travel During Off-Peak Hours:
    • Whenever possible,we schedule the transport during off-peak hours to minimize traffic congestion and disruptions to other motorists.
  10. Bridge Inspections:
    • We schedule inspections of bridges and overpasses along the route to ensure they can safely accommodate the oversized load’s height and weight. Reinforcements or alternate routes may be necessary in some cases.
  11. Communication and Updates:
    • We maintain open communication with relevant authorities, local law enforcement, and any other stakeholders during the transport. We are always prepared to adjust the route or schedule as needed.
  12. Document and Record Keeping:
    • We keep detailed records of the transport, including permits, route plans, escort schedules, and any incidents or deviations from the plan.
  13. Insurance:
    • We ensure that you have appropriate insurance coverage to protect against any accidents or damages that may occur during the transport.
  14. Follow Local Regulations:
    • ¬†We keep you aware of any local regulations or restrictions that may apply in specific municipalities or counties along your route.
  15. Post-Transport Reporting:
    • After the transport is completed, we report back to relevant authorities, return permits as necessary, and maintain records for future reference.

We find it’s crucial for heavy hauling companies to meticulously plan and execute oversized load transports to ensure safety, minimize disruptions, and comply with all legal requirements. Violations or accidents related to oversized loads can lead to fines, penalties, and legal liabilities, so adherence to regulations is of utmost importance. Our experience, professionalism and best in the business team make sure it all goes smooth as silk.
