What is a Schnabel Trailer?

A schnabel trailer is a specialized heavy-duty transport trailer designed to move extremely large, heavy , and irregularly-shaped cargo - typically wind energy turbines, heavy industrial equipment, or infrastructure components. The defining feature of schnabel trailers are the hydraulic arms or booms that securely hold and support large and heavy loads with precision load distribution. The term "schnabel" is German and translates to "beak" in English, which is a fitting name the unique design and latching systems of these trailers.
