Felling Trailers to showcase Air Bi-Fold Ramps at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020
Ramp system will be featured on a tri-axle low profile flatbed tag trailer
A key feature of Felling's design is in the operation of the flip ramp. The flip ramp locks out fully when extending preventing scraping or marring of the ground, which is undesirable, especially if it's a new surface of any kind. Another key feature is Felling's controlled flow air ramp technology, which provides for soft ground contact of the ramp, keeping new surfaces free from being damaged.
The Air Bi-Fold Ramps are 45" wide by 11' (7.5' +3.5') wood inlaid. For close to a decade, Felling Trailers has offered air ramps with available lengths of 6' to 8'. The 11' Air Bi-Fold ramps were designed to accommodate the load angle necessary when loading cumbersome low clearance equipment such as paving equipment and directional drills. The Air Bi-Fold ramps' length provides the operator with a gentler, more gradual incline to provide ease in loading/unloading with its 9.5º load angle with the option of air ride suspension when the air is dropped.
Felling Trailers' Air-Ramp technology allows operators to use the tow vehicles' onboard air system to power the ramps, eliminating the maintenance of an onboard electric/hydraulic system. Furthermore, the patent-pending technology allows for minimal ground contact when deploying/retracting the ramps to reduce damage to new pavement when loading/unloading.

All-new electro-hydraulic controls, managed through the display, make it easier than ever for operators to dial CASE CTLs into specific application demands. All new cab controls and joysticks make the new TR340B easy to own and operate.
Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
