Felling Trailers Releases Enhanced Fender Design for EZ-Tilt Trailers
SAUK CENTRE, Minn. – Felling Trailers Inc., a national leader in industrial and commercial trailers, released an enhanced fender design for its ground-level loading, EZ-Tilt trailers.
Felling has long been known as an innovative solutions provider in the trailer industry, employing its engineering team to continually enhance and develop new product designs for increased operator safety and ease of use.
The new EZ-Tilt fender design offers a similar profile to Felling’s drop deck equipment trailer fenders, opening from the top to allow clearance for the wheels when the trailers in lowered to the loading position. The mechanism for lifting the top of the fender is the wheels/tires themselves. As the axles (rotating torsion axles) rotate, lowering the tilt bed to the ground, the wheels/tires push up against the top of the fender, lifting it and providing the needed clearance. The main body of the fender is constructed out of a heavy gauge material to maintain the structural integrity throughout the trailer's life.
Key Design Features:
- Sleek Profile - The fenders’ lid/top is attached to the fender body using a series of hinges, concealed and protected inside the fender, maintaining a sleek profile.
- Dual Spring Action - Each fender is equipped with two springs (one front and one rear) which hold the lid/top closed while the trailer is in the transport position and during transit. Additionally, these springs aid in closing the fender when returning the trailer to the transport position.
- Rubber Bumpers - The lid/top of the fender rests on shock-absorbing rubber bumpers that cushion the lid/top and reduce vibration during transit.
