Peregrine Quad Steer Trailer v. Pack Mule Quad Steer Trailer
Why it matters
Single sheet, 10-gauge steel with side-to-side lateral supports. En-closed with deck lip on all four sides.
13-gauge deck with lighter-weight tube-steel lateral supports with some spaces between the deck and supports.
The heavier duty single-sheet deck, fully supported side-to-side means that your cargo is more secure and your trailer is less likely to have a deck failure.
6-ply, Load Range C pneumatic tires (the same as used on Pack Mule electric vehicles)
Hard rubber over metal.
Pneumatic tires provide a better ride for your cargo, helping to eliminate vibration and noise.
Automotive-grade tapered bearings. Sealed bearings with protective cover.
Needle bearings are great for straight line applications, but tapered bearings work better and last longer when turns and towing loads are involved.
Steering supported at all four corners.
Steering set in center of front and rear ax-les.
Concentrating all of the weight on a single point on the front and rear axles can cause failure, increasing downtime and maintenance costs. Center mounted steering is also less stable than Pack Mule’s four-corner steering support which evenly distributes the weight.
The wider wheelbase adds stability.
Safety-designed, spring-loaded tow bar.
The easily controlled spring-loaded tow bar help prevent operator injury and damage to product. It’s safer and easier to use.
Available any time — with or after the order. Easy bolt-on installation. Heavier-weight shelves with four-corner sup-port.
Special order lighter-weight shelves with two vertical supports
Pack Mule provides sturdier support for your shelf-loaded cargo, increasing safety and decreasing loss.
Pack Mule’s industry-leading three year warranty
(What is our typical order-to-delivery)
Pack Mule generally beats any competitors’ delivery time by more than half.
How we compare the Pack Mule to the competition.
We go to great lengths to make sure that the comparison between Pack Mule trailers and others are as fair and accurate as possible. It doesn’t serve anyone’s interests for those depending on the comparisons to be disappointed. Basically, here’s how we do them:
We purchase the competitor trailer through authorized channels, usually a dealer. In most cases we asked for what the competitor considered standard configuration.
The competitor trailer is tested alongside the Pack Mule in our plant. It may not be exactly like your environment, but it’s a lot closer than relying on ad copy.
Wherever possible, we use the specifications on the machine we purchased. When we need additional specs, we use the ones published on the competitor’s web site or published in their user manuals.
We frequently check to see if anything has changed. If it has, we change the comparison. Or if the competitor informs us that something has changed, we change the comparison.
We back the comparison up with on-site demos. If you’re currently using another manufacturer’s trailer, we’ll provide a Pack Mule for you to do your own comparison.
