Felling Trailers’ “Green” Air-Operated Bi-Fold Ramp System
Felling Trailers’ continues to go “green” with their patent-pending Air-Operated Bi-fold Ramps system. The Air Bi-Fold Ramps system first debuted at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020, stirring the interest of many in the construction sector. The Air Bi-Fold ramp system is part of Felling’s Controlled-Flow Air Ramp series, which the company launched over a decade ago, all air-powered, no batteries, no hydraulics. The new Air Bi-Fold system is a revolutionary system that is perfect for the paving and low clearance markets. A key feature of Felling’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. Another key feature is Felling’s controlled flow air ramp technology which provides for soft ground contact of the ramp.
Felling Trailer’s Air Bi-Fold Ramps are 114 cm wide by 3.35 m (2.29+1.06 m) wood inlaid. The Air Bi-Fold ramps were designed to accommodate the load angle necessary when loading cumbersome low clearance equipment such as paving equipment and directional drills. Their length provides the operator with a gentler, more gradual incline to provide ease in loading/unloading with its 9.5° load angle with the option of air ride suspension when the air is dropped. Felling Trailers’ Air-Ramp technology allows operators to use the tow vehicles’ onboard air system to power the ramps, eliminating the maintenance of an onboard electric/hydraulic system. Furthermore, the patent-pending technology allows for minimal ground contact when deploying/retracting the ramps to reduce damage to new pavement when loading/unloading.
The new bi-fold ramp system is currently available on 18.1 t, 20.4 t, 22.7 t, and 27.2 t tag series with plans to expand into the semi-trailer lines.
Felling Trailers will showcase their air-operated bi-fold ramps system at the World of Asphalt show, in Nashville, Tennessee, March 29-31, 2022.
The World of Asphalt Show & Conference is co-located with NSSGA’s AGG1 Academy & Expo, providing an enhanced show experience for attendees by offering additional exhibits and education opportunities.
