Introducing an addition to the Swivelwheel Transport System line, with the new Swivelwheel-58
System. The Swivelwheel-58 system is three feet shorter, and one foot wider the original product. The deck dimension of 5’
long x 8’ wide reduces the overall turning radius of the combination vehicle.
The Swivelwheel-58 may be loaded from the driver side, passenger side, or rear. The system retains most of the features of
the original design, while adding other unique qualities.
Deck Dimension – 5’ Long x 8’ Wide.
x 1 ½” Rectangular Steel Tubing. No Angle Iron Frame.
2” x 2” Stake Bed Receivers for tie down points
or mounting of stake-bed sides.
¾” Pressure Treated & Painted Plywood Deck.
Torsion Axle Suspension.
5.70 x 8”, D-Rated, 6-Ply, Highway Speed Trailer
Supplied Hitch utilizes the standard Class-III or Class-IV Receiver.
Front Jack Stand Legs with Wheels for moving the system around while disconnected from the tow vehicle.
1000 Pound Load capacity.
DOT Specified Integrated Lighting System with 4-Wire Flat Trailer Plug.
Level Deck Height @ 25 ¾”.
& Locking Deck Design. System may be flipped upward while on the tow vehicle for storage purposes or while parking in
short RV spaces.
Manufacturers Certificate of Origin & DOT Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
Tag for licensing if required.
Loading Ramp Package
- The Center Ramp is 7’-5” long x 15” wide with a 1500 pound load rating. All ramps interlock with
Tire & Wheel.
Locking Wheel Chock.
- Cruiser Ramp Electric Motorcycle loader.
- Dual Point Hook-Up Assembly. This hitch
allows the systems tongue weight to be distributed over two points connected to the tow vehicle giving a greater stability
of the deck with offset loads such as an electric golf cart. Requires welding of two additional receivers to the tow vehicle.
Receivers are included.
Receiver package for motor coaches. This receiver package is the same receiver package included in our Cruiserlift
– RV Motorcycle Lift system. The Dual point Hook-up Assembly will plug directly into the two outer receivers on the
package. The center receiver is for standard towing.
Fast Master Products developed the Swivelwheel product line with a Torsion Suspension system incorporated.
This suspension gives superior support and ride for the loads being applied to the deck. This suspension assures us that the
Swivelwheel-58 system can withstand a 1000 Pound load.
The tire is a 5.70 x 8”, D-Rated, 6-Ply,
Highway Speed Trailer Tire. The load rating with this tire is 1075 pounds @ 100 psi cold inflation. This tire will never see
1075 pounds at a 1000 pound deck load.
This tire is highway speed rated for 65 mph. I know what you’re thinking! I drive at 70 and 75 mph when
I travel. I know that some highways have speed limits of 75 mph, but the trailer tire manufacturers have told us that the
majority of the trailer tires on the market today have a speed rating of 65 mph. Some fifth wheel trailers
use a light truck tire (LT235/75R16) that will withstand higher speeds and have an 80 pound cold inflation pressure.
The fact is
…… tire ratings are specified by the tire manufacturers. All we can say is..... that what you choose to
do with that information is up to you. I have had travel trailer tire failures at 70 mph. The damage generated by those failures
came fast, even before I could stop. After $800.00 to $1500.00 or more in repairs, I can personally afford to take
an extra 45 minutes to an hour to get where I’m going in the course of a day.
The Swivelwheel-58 system includes DOT lighting. Any product, be it a trailer or a frame
extension that plugs into the receiver hitch, that extends 48" or more past the tow vehicles tail lights must follow
DOT lighting or flagging regulations. I know of products out there that are violation of this standard law that most states
follow. All Swivelwheel systems include RT Turn, Lt Turn, Stop, and Running Lights as well as license plate light.
Out of curiosity I pulled up the regulations
from a number of states and found that they all follow the DOT regulations. Below is an example from the state of California.
California Regulation #24604: Whenever the load upon any vehicle extends, or whenever any integral part
of any vehicle projects, to the rear 48” or more (including extended platforms) beyond the rear of
the vehicle, as measured from the “tail lamps”, there shall be displayed at the extreme
end of the load or projected part of the vehicle during darkness. In addition to the required tail lamp, two red lights with
a bulb rated not in excess of six candlepower plainly visible from a distance of at least 500 feet to the sides and rear.
At any other time there shall be displayed at the extreme end of the load or projecting part of the vehicle a solid red or
fluorescent orange flag or cloth not less than 12 inches square.
As the original
Swivelwheel system, the swivelwheel-58 system includes a hitch assembly that plugs directly into a standard Class-III or Class-IV
2” ID receiver on the tow vehicle. The hitch has two adjustable upright plates that connect to the front of the system
with 5/8 x 3” bent hitch pins. This connection allows the system to pivot up and down at the front for driveway and
road transitions, but will not allow the system to swing from side to side. You cannot jackknife or fishtail this product.
It will always track with the tow vehicle. If you back up, the system will track with the tow vehicle. No need to disconnect
the system to back up. The adjustment holes in the plates allow for the leveling of the deck. For heavier, offset loads, the
dual hitch mount may be required. As an example, an electric golf cart with batteries weighs about 660 pounds at the rear
tires and 345 pounds at the front tires. If loaded onto the deck, it would be side heavy. The dual point connection would
be required to stabilize the deck load.
NEVER EXCEED THE HITCH
RATING ON THE TOW VEHICLES RECEIVER.
feature of The Swivelwheel-58 system is the flip-up deck (Not avail on dual wheel system). The deck
can be flipped upward and locked into position while attached to the vehicle, for storage or while parking into a short RV
space. This feature was not designed for driving while in the raised position.
The Cruiser Ramp Electric Motorcycle Loader may also be incorporated into the Swivelwheel-58 system. This allows the motorcycle
to be pulled onto the deck without riding up ramps.
Front Jack Stand Legs are provided with the system so that the swivelwheel-58 may be moved
around while detached from the tow vehicle. These legs are removable for storage. You don’t have to find someone to
help lift the front of the product to roll it away.
There are three 2” x 2” ID Stake bed receivers on the front and rear ends of
the system for tie-down use or for mounting of stake bed sides.
Swivelwheel-58DW Dual Wheel System has the same features and dimensions
as the Swivelwheel-58 single wheel system. There are a couple of added features available on the Swivelwheelwheel-58DW system
that are not available on the basic Swivelwheel-58.
- The Swivelwheel-58DW has two torsion suspensions and wheel
- The load rating is 1100 pounds instead of 1000 pounds.
- The Swivelwheel-58DW system cannot be
used with a single receiver hook-up. The system utilizes a dual receiver, rotating hitch bar. Two additional receiver tubes
are shipped with each system for installation onto the tow vehicle. This hitch is required in order to keep the Swivelwheel-58DW's
wheels on the ground all of the time. If the hitch were fixed from side to side, one wheel would come off of the ground while
making turns. The dual receiver allows for greater platform stability while transporting an electric golf cart. These vehicles
have approx. 60% of its weight to one end. This offset in weight would make the deck lower at the side where the carts rear end
- This system answers the concern for those that want two wheels on the ground instead of one.
base price on the Swivelwheel-58DW system is $2750.00. To view the Price List / Order Form click the link.
Note: If weights less than 500-600 pounds are to be transported
on the Swivelwheel-58DW system, let us know. We will adjust the torsion suspension to allow for a smoother ride. The suspension
is set for heavier loads, and with light loads, the suspension may be too stiff and could create bouncing.
Tongue weights will vary with the deck load as well as where the load is situated
within the deck perimeter. The below example is with a HD Fat Boy loaded in the center of the deck into a locking wheel chock.Weights with HD Fat Boy Motorcycle (Single Wheel)
