12 Series LCG™



Century has brought a whole new dimension to transport with the 12 Series LCG™ (Low Center of Gravity) carrier.  The patent-pending design lowers the deck height 5 to 6 inches over conventional carriers. The lower height allows for the transport of taller loads, such as forklifts or man-lifts, that may be over-height on a conventional carrier and also provides better stability during transport. The operator can easily secure loads or tie down vehicles standing on the ground, thanks to the lower height. When mounted on most air ride chassis, with the air dumped, the 12 Series LCG™ has less than an 11-degree load angle, making it ideal for loading low-clearance vehicles or equipment without using ramps or wood. For fast and easy unloading of damaged vehicles or equipment, the 12 Series LCG™ has a 20-degree dump angle. Your new 12 Series LCG™ is available in 21', 21 1/2 ' and 22' deck lengths with a capacity of 12,000 pounds and a wide variety of options to fit your specific transport needs.

CHASSIS RECOMMENDATIONS

Fuel tanks must be under the cab.  Fuel tanks can extend up to 6 inches behind the cab only in combination with a frame mounted pylon.    Fuel fill must not be behind the cab.
The preferred location for the battery box is  under the passenger seat or under the cab, battery boxes in other locations may require relocation.

*  A minimum of 49" between the inside of the rear tires is required.
 ‡ The outside frame rails of the chassis extending behind the cab must be free of fuel tanks, air tanks, exhaust stacks, etc.


The LCG™ carrier is not compatible with chassis that have inboard mid-ship fuel tanks such as the Ford 550, GM 5500, and Dodge 5500.

Air-bag rear suspensions are recommended for the lowest possile load angle but the LCG™ carrier can be mounted on some chassis with leaf spring suspensions.  Most chassis components behind the cab outside the frame must be at least 2 inches below the top of the truck frame to clear the bed slide rails. 

NOTE:  All ratings are based on structural factors only, not vehicle capacities or capabilities. Specifications shown are approximations and may vary depending on chassis selected. Platform rating is based on an equally distributed load. Actual payload carrying capacity is determined by the curb weight of the chassis and equipment and should not exceed the GVWR of the Chassis. Miller Industries Towing Equipment Inc. reserves the right to change or modify product and/or specifications without notice or obligation.  Some equipment shown is optional.
