A newly redesigned air-operated upper deck ramp is complete for Landoll Corporation’s traveling tail series. The air-operated ramp allows equipment to easily transition from the lower to upper decks on Landoll’s 900 series traveling tail trailer. Landoll engineers redesigned the Traveling Tail frames to accommodate a longer ramp which had previously only been available on the 930 double drop frame.

The new longer ramp, is now 70.5 in. (179 cm) long, which reduces the load angle to 11.5 degrees. With the lowered load angle, the operator can load low-clearance equipment on the upper deck without “high centering” easily and safely.
