What's so special about a Rampless trailer?

Rampless trailers give their users the independence to move heavy loads , safely and quickly, all on their own. The principle of wheel-on, roll-off means one does not need strength to move loads over 20kg which is the recommended maximum for manual lifting.

What happens if the load is too heavy to wheel onto the trailer?​

The winch that is used for raising the platform can also be used to haul the cargo onto the trailer. By unhitching the snap-shackle from the beam and the rope can be connected to the cargo.


Can I use a Rampless trailer other than for bikes?

Off-course, any cargo that fits the platform area with wheels large enough to mount the platform, is perfect. Lawnmowers, plant equipment and furniture are first to come to mind.

The LAZY-LOWDER LL08 is large enough to take a pallet load weighing up to 500kg.

You want the centre-of-gravity just forward of the wheels.
Remove the wheel/channels if they are in the way. (A note though that the eye nuts do not have welded threads this means you need to loosen/fasten from above and below the loading platform)

What if I want to use the trailer for firewood or garden refuse?

The law says you need to "cover your load." A simple was, is to lay shade cloth or a tarpaulin over the loading platform, so that it flaps over the sides. After loading, simply close the flaps and strap into place. A cargo net will also come in handy.
