Felling Trailers, Inc. Showcases New Air Bi-Fold Ramps at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020

SAUK CENTRE, Minn. - Felling Trailers, Inc. will introduce its new, patent-pending, Air Bi-fold Ramps at the upcoming  2020 CONEXPO-CON/AGG. The Air Bi-Fold Ramp system featured on Felling Trailers' 25-ton FT-50-3 LP, a tri-axle low profile flatbed tag trailer. 

Few manufacturers in the marketplace offer an Air Bi-Fold Ramp system. A key feature of Felling Trailers, Inc.'s design is in the operation of the flip ramp. The flip ramp locks out fully when extending preventing scraping or marring of the ground, which is undesirable, especially if it's a new surface of any kind. Another key feature is Felling Trailers, Inc.'s controlled flow air ramp technology, which provides for soft ground contact of the ramp, keeping new surfaces free from being damaged.

The Air Bi-Fold Ramps are 45 inches wide by 11 feet (7.5 feet and 3.5 feet) wood inlaid. For close to a decade, Felling Trailers, Inc. has offered air ramps with available lengths of 6 foot to 8 foot. The 11 foot Air Bi-Fold ramps, designed to accommodate the load angle necessary when loading cumbersome low clearance equipment such as paving equipment and directional drills. The Air Bi-Fold ramps' length provides the operator with a gentler, more gradual incline to provide ease in loading/unloading with its 9.5-degree load angle with the option of air ride suspension when the air drops. Felling Trailers, Inc.'s Air-Ramp technology allows operators to use the tow vehicles' onboard air system to power the ramps, eliminating the maintenance of an onboard electric or hydraulic system. Furthermore, the patent-pending technology allows for minimal ground contact when deploying or retracting the ramps to reduce damage to new pavement when loading and unloading.
