The CX-LSFA-TRI is the newest Cottrell 80’ FA model that combines past innovations with new technology to create one mega truck hauler. Built with state weight permitting in mind, this unit can haul up to 90,000 lbs. with the additional third axle. The trailer carries a new specialized “lock and load” truck package and is built to take punishing truck loads again and again. The trailer can be combined with both a 3-Car CSFA and 3.5 CSFA TRI Car Headrack . The 3.5 CSFATRI Car Headrack can haul (3) crew cabs, but can also support mega cab/dually combinations. Contact your Cottrell sales representative to determine if this is the right Cottrell model for you.

Your bottom line matters

Cottrell haulers are engineered with your bottom line in mind. Whether it's minimizing weight or meeting new environmental regulations, we're focused on optimizing your car haulers to save you money.

LIGHTWEIGHT From aluminum hydraulic cylinders, air tanks and valves, to lightweight parflex hose and accessories, our engineers have maximized lightweight materials to reduce weight.

TIRE INFLATION MONITORING As an optional upgrade, Cottrell car haulers can have tire inflation monitoring systems to further maximize your fuel efficiency.

Designed with your safety and comfort in mind

We build the most driver-friendly car haulers in the industry. Whether great ideas start with our engineers or our customers, we're continuously optimizing our haulers with features that increase driver safety and comfort.

OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY Patented quick release ratchet tie down systems, LED lights with ‘fit and forget’ connectors and gravitational slide out loading skids help you get loaded and on the road.

SAFETY FIRST Fall protection kits and extended catwalks are engineered with driver safety in mind.

ERGONOMIC Door openings and loading angles are optimized for ease of use and to prevent damages.

COLD WEATHER OPTIONS For cold weather areas, upgrade with side curtain and king pin apron kits, thinner hydraulic fluid, tuff coat hose protectant and aluminum belly pans.

One size does not fit all

While Cottrell offers over 40 different trailer models to fit your applications, we know there's no universal solution. Our engineers will work with you to use your hauling routes and the vehicle types you carry to create a fully optimized piece of equipment.

SHORT HAUL VS LONG HAUL Depending on your route needs, Cottrell engineers can work with you to create a car hauler that's optimized to fit more vehicles for long hauls or minimize steps in the loading sequence for short hauls.

CUSTOM PAINT With state of the art paint booths, we can match any custom color. An electro static paint process leaves your hauler with a durable finish that prevents rust and comes with a 5 year limited warranty.
