Felling Trailers Adds Air Tilt Model

Felling Trailers Air Tilt is Latest Addition to their Tilt Line

(SAUK CENTRE, MINNESOTA, APRIL 7, 2011) –Felling Trailers released an innovative trailer to its expansive tilt line – the Air Tilt Deck-Over. This unique design utilizes air, powered from the tow vehicle, to tilt the trailer and optional ramps, eliminating the need for hydraulics. The air power from the tow vehicle fills two air bags, which then raise the trailer smoothly; the air bag will then keep the deck in the tilted position to allow for loading/unloading of multiple pieces of equipment. The deck then lowers itself by releasing the air pressure at a controlled rate to prevent the deck from slamming down. These trailers are also equipped with Felling’s Air-Latch System (Deck Lock). This allows the user to lock and unlock the deck with the flip of a switch instead of working with cumbersome levers or walking from one side of the deck to the other.

“Towability of a TAG trailer with the versatility of a tilt.”

Superior towing capability and balance were achieved by placing the axles further back on the Air Tilt model than other tilt trailers on the market. It has been touted to have the “Towability of a TAG trailer with the versatility of a tilt.” These models are also great for transporting low clearance equipment such as pavers, scissor lifts, forklifts and more with its low-clearance loading angle. With the option of ramps, a load angle as low as can be achieved for loading equipment. In the construction of this trailer Felling uses a High Grade 80 steel for the main structural beams that was fabricated in-house. The use of these beams in turn increases the trailer’s strength, yet reduces the total trailer weight.

There are five base models for the Air Tilt:

FT-20-2 TA – Load capacity 20,000 lbs.

FT-24-2 TA – Load capacity 24,000 lbs.

FT-30-2 TA – Load capacity 30,000 lbs.

FT-40-2 TA – Load capacity 40,000 lbs.

FT-50-3 TA – Load capacity 50,000 lbs.
