Retriever air-operated truck bed

Retriever air-operated truck bed
The Retriever is a truck bed designed to help transport more equipment faster, easier and at lower cost. An air-operated, curved and hinged design reduces deck weight, creating greater payload capacity, and its shallow loading angle – as low as 10.8 degrees – allows equipment to be driven on board, while the curved shape eliminates “break over” damage. Plus, a lower, more stable “on the road” deck height improves safety. With the Retriever, non-CDL trucks can handle as much as 11,000 pounds and tandems can manage a full 30,000 pounds.
