Trailer spotters are designed for moving semitrailers in or around commercial freight yards. They are built to accommodate a hydraulic lifting fifth wheel, which allows the operator to move trailers without exiting the cab or cranking the landing gear. Once a trailer has been moved to its destination, the operator can lower the trailer back to the ground, and uncouple the fifth wheel without leaving the cab. It can normally move 3 units in the same amount of time that a standard tractor would use to move 1 unit. A trailer spotter can increase driver productivity in most situations and the easiest way to figure out if you are in need of one is to track the time your drivers spend cranking up trailers prior to hooking up.
