Galvanizing

Unlike paint, galvanizing creates a metallurgical bond with the steel that forms several layers. These layers protect the steel from rust corrosion and rust seepage in ways paint simply cannot. Some of these formed layers are harder than the steel itself creating an abrasion resistance to help prevent wear from gravel or sand. Galvanizing can also add to the resale value of the trailer and the initial investment is similar to what it would cost to repaint a trailer a few years down the road.

Hydraulic Ramps

Hydraulic ramps are controlled by an onboard electric over hydraulic pump. They are standard with a 5-ft. beavertail at 12-degrees and 3 ft. wide x 6 ft. long hydraulic ramps at 16-degree incline. This option may be added to almost any deck-over trailer with a capacity of 20,000 lbs. or more. 22′ main deck required for this option.

Air Ramps

Air ramps are controlled by an on-board air tank. Releasing air lowers the ramps and filling the actuators raises the ramps. This is an economical way to add automatic ramp lifts to your trailer. Air ramps are 6 ft. long with a 16-degree incline. This option may be added to deck-over trailers with a capacity of 20,000 lbs. or more, equipped with air brakes. 22′ main deck required for this option.

Available on air brake trailers only!

Double-Break Beavertail

Add the Double-Break Beavertail option to your deck over model and you’ll have one of the easiest loading/unloading trailers in the business. Option comes standard with 6′ ramps and the 7′-6″ beavertail goes from 12 degrees down to 6 degrees! The Double-Break Beavertail minimizes “high pointing” with a smooth transition from beavertail to flat deck. Ideal for excavators, trenching machines and other tracked machinery. Angle iron on beavertail offers superior traction.
