Get a Lo Riser or Lift-a-Load trailer working for you.


We at The Advance Metalworking Co., Inc. have been in business for over 60 years. We started building agricultural trailers, but due to the ever changing economy, we then decided to expand the trailer division. We utilized our years of experience in order to develop the next generation of trailers to suit your special requirements.

The 1980’s marked the introduction of the Lift-a-Load® Elevating Platform Trailer which can be hydraulically lowered flat to ground height or raised up to dock height. It’s the perfect trailer for all those special circumstances in which your faced with loading low ground clearance or reduced gradability equipment or if you can’t find a way to get your cargo down off a dock and onto your trailer. Just raise to dock height or lower to ground height and you can easily drive right on.

Or if you don’t need to raise to dock height, then the Lo Riser Inclining Platform Trailer might solve your loading issues. The Lo Riser, first introduced in 2005, boasted a 4 to 1 payload to trailer weight ratio with high strength steel decking and a 5 degree load angle. And now a 16,000 lb load capacity (19,850 lbs GVWR) model is available. This model boasts a 16 ft bed length, a 4 degree load angle, 4 position hitch height adjustment, extra-large, lockable storage area and more. Our 6,000, 10,000, 12,000 and 14,000 lb capacity models have been updated with all the updated features on this 16,000 lb model. All Lo Riser models can be lowered to ground height with just the flip of a switch for easy drive-on access. Additionally, the combination of hydraulics over rubber suspension provides smooth travel even when empty. Your productivity will be greatly enhanced with either trailer since both are so fast and simple to load.

Quality is of utmost importance so we go to great lengths to inspect the components that create our hydraulic trailers. Questions or concerns about our trailers? Then just call us.
