Felling Trailers EZ Tilt Technology for ground level loading

Felling's EZ Tilt Technology allows for ground-level loading with its rotating torsion suspension, providing a 5-degree load angle.  This low load angle makes it possible to load and unload low-clearance equipment, such as scissor lifts and rollers. The EZ-Tilt trailer is great for rental shops or rental yards, offering the versatility to load a variety of equipment safely and quickly, getting the customer on their way. 

"The EZ Tilt is what I would call a universal trailer, the electric/hydraulic lift system with the power up and down gives the operator the ability to load and deliver two scissor lifts at a time. Plus, with the EZ Tilt's low load angle, it gives the operator the ability to load the hard-to-load floor sweepers and has the capacity to haul a skid steer," said Ed Steinemann, Felling's national account manager.

The Felling Engineering team worked closely with Lippert Components Inc., which designed the axle and suspension system, to develop a trailer that was unique, reliable- and user-friendly.

"We were excited to work with Felling Trailers on their EZ Tilt project and look forward to the future development and growth of this suspension system in the market." said Bob Boone, director of sales – Towables for Lippert Components Inc.

EZ Tilt standard specifications:

• Deck Length – 18.5-foot tilt deck length, including 3.5-foot approach plate at the rear of the deck.
• Electric/Hydraulic Lift System – electric/hydraulic pump with corded remote and 12 V battery in a lockable enclosure.
• Axles/Suspension – (2) 7K-drop axles with rotating torsion suspension.
• Approx Deck Height/Load Angle – 20.5 feet unloaded deck height, 5-degree load angle.
