With their fixed middle beam and side support posts, logging body flatbed trucks are specially designed to carry logs. If only log length material is being transported, these flatbed trucks can be hauled using a straight truck, but a different setup and vehicle are needed for tree-length logs or multiple bunks of log length material. Often the straight trucks used with logging body flatbed trucks will have a loader attached for self-loading the logs.
The standard flatbed truck includes a flat body with no roof or sides and is widely recognized as a tow truck. Flatbed trucks are able to carry equipment that may not fit in other transportation vehicles which have enclosed cargo areas due to size constraints. The open format of flatbed body trucks also provides for easier loading and unloading, as cranes or other equipment can be used since there are no sides or roofs.
A step deck is a type of flatbed truck that is used to carry cargo that is extremely tall and/or heavy. These can also be called “lowboys” or “step decks”, but they are all the same design. Department of Transportation requirements limits the height of cargo that can be carried on trailers so that bridges or other infrastructure are not damaged. To continue moving this type of cargo, step decks were designed to provide a lower clearance for industrial or tall machinery to be transported.
Stake Bed Flatbed
A flatbed with removable posts or stakes mounted into joists on the side of the flatbed is called a stake bed truck. Easily removed for cargo loading or unloading, these stakes can be put back in place before transportation to ensure the cargo stays in the bed. This format is often used by farmers to haul livestock, feed, timber, and agricultural equipment.

Hyundai flatbed trucks are built to be extremely tough and provide versatility, value and durability for your next load of cargo.
