Trailers with Air Ramp Option Increase Workplace Safety

Preventing back injuries and increasing workplace safety should be top-of-mind during each work day. For instance, lifting trailer ramps with two people instead of one, bending with your knees when lifting, and all the other safety reminders. But to reduce the risk even more, Felling Trailers can be equipped with Air Ramp Technology, so you don’t have to lift a heavy ramp and risk causing injury to your back. The Air Ramp does all the lifting for you, helping to prevent back injuries and increase workplace safety.

How Do Air Ramps on Trailers Work?

Felling Air Ramps operate via an air bag system that works off of the same supply as the air brake system. Thus, any air-brake equipped truck can operate a Felling Trailer equipped with air ramps without any other external power source (e.g. battery, gas engine or truck powered hydraulic system). Want to see how it works? View the video below.

Air Ramps Compared to Hydraulic Ramps

Felling Trailers equipped with the Air Ramp solution are cleaner, more economical, and do not require the use of bulky hydraulics. Compared to hydraulic ramps, air ramps have lower maintenance costs over time and also eliminate the possibility of environmental cleanup issues that are often associated with hydraulic ramp leaks.
