Felling Trailers’ air ramp technology is such a popular option among several of its trailer models that Felling Trailers now offers it on its over the road (OTR) semi trailers. Felling air ramps operate via an air bag system that works off 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). Additionally, air ramps have lower maintenance costs over time and also eliminate the possibility of environmental cleanup issues associated with hydraulic ramp leaks, according to the manufacturer.

Felling has outfitted air ramps on everything from a 20,000 lb. (9,072 kg) capacity tag trailer to a 100,000 lb. (45,359 kg) hydraulic detach trailer. The air lift system is able to lift in excess of 5,000 lbs. (2,268 kg), which gives it more than enough power, and is available in 36, 45 in. (91 and 114 cm), and full-width options on any air-brake equipped trailer.
