Tank carrier - Machine carrier The machine carrier or tank carrier is a trailer or a flatbed semi-trailer specially designed for the transport of construction machinery, not authorized to travel on the roads: bulldozers, scrapers, graders, etc. transported from one construction site to another thanks to the tank carrier.
At the rear, the machine carrier is fitted with ramps which allow the machine to be loaded and unloaded. The ramps are raised during transport.
The machine carriers, sometimes lowered, are based on axles, the number of which varies according to the size of the chassis and the weight to be transported. A machine carrier can be towed by a road or agricultural tractor, to which it is attached by a drawbar. When unhitched, the carrier rests on crutches or on a jockey wheel. It can be equipped with a winch or a tilting platform to facilitate loading and unloading of machinery.
