Drop deck air ramp system from Felling Trailers to launch at The Utility Expo
Felling Trailers will debut its new Air Ramp Slider Track System for the Drop Deck I (DDI) series, air brake equipped, FT-20 I and FT-24 I trailers. Operator safety and ease of use are paramount at Felling Trailers, thus expanding the air ramp offering to their drop deck equipment trailer line was inevitably the next step.
The DDI Air Ramp System operates via an airbag system that works off the same supply as the air brake system. Any air-brake-equipped truck can operate a Felling Trailer equipped with air ramps without any other external power source. The air power mechanism is like those used on larger capacity trailers but scaled to a lighter duty cycle for the lower capacity trailer and ramps.
Unique to the DDI's air ramp operation is the slider track system that works in unison with the ramps pivoting as they are raised or lowered. The design of the slider track allows the ramps to move laterally along the trailer's full-width. This lateral movement provides operators the flexibility to change the placement of the ramps based on the equipment they are transporting.
This trailer and many others will be on display at The Utility Expo.
