Want to know more about low loader operation? We have recently uploaded a new video to our YouTube Channel. It shows the basic process of removing the neck on a Broshuis tandem axle low loader. This video is the first in a series of instructional and training videos that cover some of the regular operations on our fleet of specialist trailers.
