Lutheran Church Charities (LCC) Disaster Response (DR) wishes to trade in and purchase a new Aluma Tiltbed Trailer for $6400 (with trade-in). The new trailer will be used to transport the boom lift long distances to disasters when needed for LCC DR Lutheran Early Response Team (L.E.R.T.) chainsaw volunteers to remove downed trees from roofs and dangerous hanging trees and limbs.
Currently, LCC DR owns a 2,200-pound wood and aluminum trailer that does not tilt, resulting in several men having to tilt and then push with difficulty the 5,000-pound boom lift onto the trailer over the dovetail ramp. The total weight load can then be transported by only a few people with the required truck horsepower.
LCC can trade the current trailer in for an aluminum tilt trailer that makes loading much safer and easier. The aluminum tilt trailer is much lighter weighing 1500 pounds, 700 pounds less than the current one owned by LCC DR. As a result, the total load weight will allow more people with a less horsepower truck to transport it to a disaster location.
Please consider donating so that LCC Disaster Response L.E.R.T. can transport equipment safer and easier to disaster sites when invited to do so.
