The workhorse of Human Powered Machines, our Tri-Hauler is a load-carrying recumbent tricycle that will have you actively seeking out up to 600 lbs of anything to carry from place to place. Utilized for everything from newspaper delivery to food distribution, the Tri-Hauler leaves other work bikes and trailers in the dust. Fully loaded with an aluminum flatbed, its stability, comfort and handling surpass anything out there.

Comfortable and easy to ride, you steer the Tri-Hauler with your legs.
