    Trailmate Hefty Hauler Review on February 5, 2019

    Trailmate have been building quality adult tricycles from 1977 in Bradenton Florida. I know the owner Harry at Trailmate very well and talk to him on a regular basis. About ten years ago Trailmate was making some upgrades to there factory and adding a new paint line. I asked Harry why he would go through all that trouble rather than just have his tricycle made in Taiwan or China like so many other companies do. Harry said that he did not want to live with a suit case in his hand. If you have your products made some ware else your have to be there all the time to monitor the quality. Harry went on to say that sure you can make more money on having your products made in China but that’s not what he wanted to do and not what Trailmate is about. Harry is easily at the age that he could retire, Harry is an entrepreneur and business is in his blood, I think he really enjoys working and making trikes, I think it gives him a purpose in life.

    Frame: The frame on the Hefty Hauler is Tig welded together in Florida and has a 500 Lbs. capacity. The frame is easily put together by bolting the rear section to the front by using four bolts. The Hefty Hauler set itself apart in many ways form other Industrial Tricycles. The Hefty Hauler has the largest rear cargo platform area of any Industrial tricycle. The frame on the Hefty Hauler is also longer than other brands giving riders more room between the seat and handlebars.

    Paint: Trailmate has it own paint department, the standard colors for the Hefty Hauler are Industrial Yellow and Gloss Black. Trailmate can do custom colors for an up charge on the Hefty Hauler. The paint is a power coat and is applied extra thick on the Hefty Hauler, the quality is equal to better than other Industrial tricycles on the market.

    Gearing: The stock drivetrain on the Hefty Hauler is a Coaster Brake. Most factory and industrial users prefer the Coaster Brake because it adds a level of safety for the rider. Trailmate also offers a three speed coaster brake kit which is a nice addition if you have to ride up a ramp or hill.

    Braking: The Hefty Hauler uses a “V” style front brake which is welded to the fork of the trike. The “V” brake come with oversize brake pads and can stop the trike more than sufficiently.

    Seat: The Hefty Hauler has a huge oversize seat with a rear support bar that bolts directly to the frame. For large heavier riders this is the best option for a seat.

    Ride: We like the ride on the Hefty Hauler. The cranks are positioned a bit farther forward which gives the Hefty Hauler a more recreational feel and adds stability. While moving the cranks farther forward helps stability it also makes riding the trike standing a bit more awkward. The Hefty Hauler most popular wheel size is the 26” but it is also available in 24” wheels.

    Wheels: Trailmate uses heavy duty wheels that the spokes are welded directly to the hub and rim. Trailmate has been using these wheels for years and have proven to be very reliable. A popular option is tire liner to help prevent flat tires or solid tires.

    Other Stuff: The Hefty Hauler is available with the largest rear cabinet on the market. The cabinet is made of diamond plate of aluminum so it does not rust and has a lockable hasp.

    Pros: The Hefty Hauler is safe, durable and stable it provides a confident reassuring ride and is a well built trike. The Hefty Hauler features a reliable one piece crank, Sealed Pillow block rear axle bearings, extra wide seat with a support bar. The frame is longer than other brands and is Tig welded together. The paint is high quality and will look good for years. You also got to love that it is made in USA.

    Cons: Even though the Hefty Hauler has a 500 Lbs weight capacity the rear axle is not as thick as some other brands.

    I need a heavy duty tricycle because I am a heavy individual. I called the people at Industrialbicycles and told them what I was looking for and what I had my eye on. The trike I was looking at purchasing was simply the incorrect tricycle for my needs. After talking to the sales person I was recommend to look at the Trailmate Hefty Hauler. The trike has worked out perfectly for me. The trike is longer than other trike from the seat to the handlebars. The trike fits me much better than other tricycles I have tried. The seat was a big deal to me, the seat is extra large and supported on three corners. My old trike the seat was always spinning on the seat post or slipping down. With supporting the seat on three corners all those problems have gone away. The trike has a very large platform which is a bit over kill for my needs but for someone looking to carry a lot of thins it would be fantastic. I added a 21"x15"x9" rear basket and still have lot of room left over. I chose the 26" wheel option so I could get the best roll out of the tricycle. The tricycle is well made and come with a 500 Lbs capacity. Can you actually believe the it is made in the USA, I think that is fantastic.
