Mack LMSW Lowbed Tractor with Hyster Folding Gooseneck Trailer

Although they could haul most anything the folding gooseneck was great for paving machines and trenchers. This trailer required a tractor with winch to pull the gooseneck up into latching position and then the tractor could force itself under to connect the fifth wheel with the help of the winch.
Every state had their own rules, in Maine in the 50s and 60s this rig could be permitted to haul a yard and a half shovel, a little more than a fifty ton machine.

Rogers 90 Ton Lowbed and International F-230-D Tractor

This is a very accurate model of a Roger Bros. cable operated removable gooseneck trailer of about 1950. Rather than using a hydraulic ram to raise and lower the trailer bed during the unloading process, the ram was operated by a cable controlled by the tractor's winch.

The "geep dolly" or as Rogers calls it, a gooseneck dolly, is the same as that used in the Sheepscot kits 95046, 95047, 95048, and 95049 cast metal lowbed kits.

Building an Older Style Gooseneck Trailer

Building an Older Style Gooseneck Trailer

Here’s how I started one of the older style gooseneck trailers. This style was available as an option through the 1950s but the flat design made much more sense.
I wish the white styrene would show up better in these photographs. Obviously the assembly can’t be painted until it is nearly completed, one of the benefits of styrene is the ease gluing one part to another.
