Flatbed implement carriers were developed to haul wide farm implements short distances between fields. They are often pulled by the tractor that loads the implement. To lower the platform to ground level, wheel locks are engaged, the carrier bed clamps are released, and the carrier bed is pulled forward. The bed runs down runners to reach ground level. With the bed level on the ground, an implement can be towed onto the carrier bed. After loading, the carrier bed is pushed back over the wheels, clamps are secured, wheel locks are released, and the trailer is ready to be towed. Trailer widths are 6 to 9 feet, and lengths are 21 to 48 feet. Carrying capacity is 10,000 to 16,000 pounds. They are well suited for carrying implements, bales of hay, and other supplies in the field or on a highway.
