Self-Loading Turret Reel Trailer

FT-14-2 R Turret Trailer - Felling TrailersFelling Trailers, Inc.’s Self Loading Turret Reel trailer is a valuable tool for any fleet. With a 360 degree hydraulically operated rotating turret assembly, the FT-14-2 R Turret can lock into any position when the directional control valve is released. Keeping mindful of equipment, time, and operator safety the turret’s self-loading feature eliminates the need to have extra equipment and operators on-site to lift and load the reel as on a fixed reel trailer. The hydraulic payout/take-up assembly is a sealed gear driven unit. Keeping repair work to a minimum, there are no chains or sprockets to break or wear out. The drive unit is exceptionally smooth and quiet to operate, easily engages, and disengages from the reel bar. Not only does it payout and retrieve, but it also has optional hydraulic braking capabilities. Hydraulic brake tensioning eliminates the heat generated by traditional caliper and rotor. This reduces line gallop and allows for a longer tensioning duration. The generated heat is absorbed in the hydraulic oil and dissipated by the oil cooler.

Triple Axle FT-30-3 Drill Series

FT-30-3 I-S DS utility directional drill trailer - Felling Trailers

Felling Trailers, Inc. has focused on manufacturing trailers for the underground drill and trencher industry for a long time. After customer feedback on need for trailer to accommodate a new drill, Felling’s Engineering and Sales teams went to work to design a three-axle model with the deck between the fenders to obtain the lowest deck height possible, yet be available in either electric brakes or air brakes depending on the end user’s needs.  In this design, they also incorporated some of the options that many utility customers require as standard, items such as an extended hitch configuration that includes about 30 inches of minimal tongue width back as far as the jack to allow a tighter turning radius.  This hitch configuration allows a heavy-duty spring foot jack to be mounted on the outside of the hitch for easy jack operation without reaching inside of the hitch to operate.  The elevated water tank stands were designed with increased strength and narrower to allow the tank to mount a little farther over the fender, accommodating the wider drill yet keep the tank as low as possible.
