Excerpt from Methods and Costs of Loading Apples in the Orchard in the Pacific Northwest

The majority of Washington growers haul fruit from the orchard on flat-bed two wheeled or tandem-wheeled trailers (one wheel slightly ahead of the other to ride gently over uneven orchard terrain) (fig. Some of the older trailers have large wheel housings in the bed, while the newer ones all use smaller wheels and flat beds. The trailers are constructed with the beds relatively close to the ground so that the loaded trailer can move under the branches of the trees. The trailer is usually built with a bed approximately 7 feet wide, which will accommodate the length of four boxes or the width of seven boxes. Some growers prefer to load boxes crosswise to the trailer bed (fig. Because they believe the load rides more stably over orchard ditches and around turns. Others load the boxes lengthwise. (fig? because this arrangement is easier to load.
