Beavertail Trucks for Sale (93)

Finding a used beavertail truck for sale in the UK is straightforward.  These pages are full of the specialist trucks, designed mainly for the transportation of plant equipment, such as access platforms or excavators, for example.

The rear of the flatbed body drops at an angle towards the floor.  Adding a set of ramps to the rear of the angled body means that an acceptable loading angle can be achieved for the wheeled plant that subsequently can be towed onto the back of the truck using the truck’s built in winch.

For heavier items of plant the transport company would more likely use a tractor unit and low-loader semi-trailer.
Used Beavertail Trucks
The ramps can be simply stored on the body by being slid along and strapped down when not in use, or may be stored under the body and can be slid out.

The ramps may be folded upright to for a back to the body or use a ‘cheesewedge’ design, which has the ramps folding down to create a flat floor, meaning that this space can be used as a loading area (assuming the items can be loaded by hand or a crane).

More Beavertail Trucks Info

Which Size Beavertail Truck?

Beavertails start from just 3.5 tonnes GVW – these are usually used for car recovery, but also can be used from small micro diggers or similar types of plant equipment.

There are plenty of 7.5 tonne plant lorries with beavertail bodies – these will be carrying the mini digger-sized items of plant, as well as cars where required.  Unless the 7.5 tonner is towing a trailer (which they often do) there is likely to be only one machine loaded on the truck.

Loaded beavertail truck
This shows that a beavertail truck is not just for plant. Plenty of room for a Transit on this 6×2 26 tonner!

Moving up to 18 tonnes, the largest two axle 4×2 truck format, these are the bread and butter of the beavertail truck.  Capable of carrying a number of small machines or can now carry a typical backhoe loader like a JCB 3CX.

For extra piece of mind and the ability to carry more equipment, many operators will opt for a 6×2 three axle truck running at 26 tonnes GVW with a rear lift axle.  This additional payload available means that the truck can run a longer body and carry more equipment.

Many beavertail trucks are required to move static machines that can’t be dragged up the ramps.  A specialist 8×2 truck will usually perform this role admirably.  The extra axle, usually just behind the cab, will look after the extra weight that a substantial truck-mounted crane would bring.

Don’t forget that a low loader semi-trailer is usually a beavertail -type of body and can gross out at 44 tonnes with a tri-axle version and 6×2 tractor unit.
