Felling Trailers Releases Design Updates to Their Signature Air Tilt Product Line

Sauk Centre, Minnesota, January 28th, 2022) -- The Felling Trailers’ Air Tilt model has undergone design modifications to increase operator ease of use and safety. One of the more notable updates was the fixed approach ramp, which was extended in length from 14” to 22”. “The new design offers a shallower approach angle to improve loading of compact construction equipment such as skid steers and mini excavators. Equipment designs are ever-changing, so it only makes sense to make modifications to keep in step,” said Nathan Uphus Felling’s Sales Manager. Extending the fixed approach ramp's length reduced the load angle by approximately 10 degrees, providing a better load angle with a more subtle break-over point. The new design also allows for the option of full-size oval recessed strobe lights. Air Tilt models with the new fixed approach ramp design were put into production in the spring of last year and put into service for customers by mid-year.

The Air Tilt product line was first released to the trailer industry in early 2010. Initially, the model line consisted of the FT-40-2 TA and FT-50-3 TA. Over the past ten-plus years, the model line has expanded to offer six models, with payload capacities ranging from 19,700 lbs. to 50,000 lbs. The Air Tilt’s (TA’s) unique design utilizes air, powered from the tow vehicle, to tilt the trailer and optional ramps, eliminating the need for hydraulics. The air power from the tow vehicle fills two airbags (four airbags optional), which then raise the trailer smoothly; the airbag will then keep the deck in the tilted position to allow for loading/unloading of multiple pieces of equipment. Superior towing capability and balance were achieved by placing the axles further back on the Air Tilt model than other tilt trailers on the market.
