Walk in the back...and out the front!
Böckmann makes it even easier for the long-backed horse to walk down the front ramp, with this extended Portax K version. The Portax LK now offers an additional full height groom door on the right, alongside the front walk-off ramp. Easy access to check horses on both sides of the trailer. The Portax LK saddle chest is designed for both English and Western saddles.
This trailer is ideal for older horses that need to care for hind-end injuries when exiting the trailer, for teaching young horses to load, and for the rider that ships on their own.
Chassis, Body, Interior
This hot-dipped galvanized steel chassis measures 17.5'/5355mm in total length. With the aluminum floor covered by fully secured and sealed original rubber mats, horses are treated to the smoothest of rides the WCF suspension can provide. The axles are made for heavy loads, up to 2700kg/5591lbs and are secured in 8 points to longitudinal beams under the floor panels.
Böckmann builds for strength, safety and durability!
The chassis supports extruded anodized wall panels of anodized aluminum to create the sleek Portax models. These double web wall profiles allow for an air pocket to mitigate the effects of the external heat and cold Mother Nature provides. The goal is to keep the horses as cool for transport during warm weather, and to be warm enough during the cold weather seasons,
Capped off with the strength of the polyester roof and front bow, you can match your trailer to your barn, farm or tow vehicle colours. The polyester is not a heat transfer material keeping your horses cooler during transport.
The optimum in air flow is achieved with a roof vent for the ingress of air, double lateral windows on both stall walls and an adjustable storm canvas that can be entirely open, closed or with a screen vent opened during transit.
The extra 65cm/26" of trailer length is put to good use-providing additional access doors, space for features like portable feed/water buckets, room for hay storage, for saddling your horses, or room for you to change!
The swiveling stall Central panels allow you easier access to the horses while on board. Edges are smoothed, safety systems for the horses installed, and clever utilization of space.
The Portax Large series exemplifies generosity of space in a moderately sized horse trailer. Designed for vehicles that can tow 2500kg/5512lbs, the Portax L models are extensions of the regular Portax models, seen on the regular Portax series page.
Each Portax L model offers a different saddle storage, and utility of the extended 65cm/26" of additional length. The Portax LE, LK and LSKA models leave room for additional hay bales at the front of the trailer, offer the same great saddle storage of their regular-size counterparts and allow the rider a change space within the horse stall.
The Portax LSR has an innovative small tack room design with shelving, boot jack, seating, saddle racks and more.
Finally, the Big Portax completes the Large Portax series, providing the most generous of horse stalls and the largest tack room of all Böckmann 2 horse trailers. Also exhibiting some of the key storage features found in the LSR model...but to Big Portax dimensions!
