    Vulcan has added an entirely new dimension to the concept of  transport, thanks to its 12 and 16 Series LCG™ (Low Center of Gravity) carriers .  Their patent-pending design lowers the deck height by as much as five to six inches over that of conventional carriers.  The result is better stability during transport, the abiltiy to haul taller loads and increased operator safety because the operator can easily secure the load while standing safely on the ground.  Finally, the LCG™'s innovative design includes a load angle that's as low as  a 11 degrees when mounted on most air-ride chassis with the air dumped or 7 1/2 degrees with the SST™ option.  Your new 16 Series LCG™ is available in deck lengths from 21' to 26' with a capacity of 16,000 lbs. and a wide variety of options to fit your specific transport needs.

    Minimum Frame Length Behind Center of Rear Axle

    Minimum Frame Height 33" 36"
    Maximum Frame Height 38" 40"

    Wheel & Tire Size 19.5 22.5
    ●  Chassis components directly behind the cab must be 2" below the top of the truck frame.
    ●   The outside frame rails of the chassis extending behind the cab must be free of fuel tanks, air tanks, exhaust stacks, etc.
    ●  The LCG™ carrier is not compatible with chassis that have inboard mid-ship fuel tanks such as the Ford 550 and Dodge 5500.  Fuel tanks must be under the cab.  Fuel tanks can extend up to six inches behind the cab only in combination with a frame-mounted pylon.  Fuel fill must not be behind the cab.
    ●  The preferred location for the battery box is under the passenger seat or under the cab, battery boxes in other locations may require relocation.
    ●  Air-bag rear suspensions are recommended for the lowest possible load angle but the LCG™ carrier can be mounted on some chassis with leaf spring suspensions.  The top of the truck frame must not be more than 3 3/4 inches below the top of the tires with the airbag suspension deflated.  Chassis that do not employ helper spring pads as International 4300 and Ford F650 have no installation issues.  Chassis such as Hino will need the helper spring pads lowered.
    ●  In-Line horizontal exhaust systems on some chassis with 2010 emissions that require DEF may interfere with inboard tilt cylinders and an alternate exhaust configuration should be selected.
    ●  A minimum clearance of 49" between the inside of the rear tires is required.
