Easy-tilt trailer

Felling Trailers, Inc. debuts EZ Tilt technology.

Felling Trailers, Inc., debuted its EZ Tilt Technology with the FT-12 EZ-T tilt trailer at the 2018 Rental Show in New Orleans in February. Felling’s EZ Tilt Technology allows for ground-level loading with its rotating torsion suspension, providing a 5-degree load angle.  This low load angle makes it possible to load and unload low clearance equipment such as floor sweepers, scissor lifts and rollers.

Felling sources report the EZ-Tilt trailer is great for rental shops or rental yards, offering the versatility to load a variety of equipment safely and quickly, getting the customer on their way.

“The EZ Tilt is what I would call a universal trailer, the electric/hydraulic lift system with the power up and down gives the operator the ability to load and deliver two scissor lifts at a time. Plus, with the EZ Tilt’s low load angle, it gives the operator the ability to load the hard-to-load floor sweepers and has the capacity to haul a skid steer,” says Ed Steinemann, Felling national account manager.

The Felling engineering team worked closely with Lippert Components Inc., which designed the axle and suspension system, to develop a trailer that was unique, reliable, and user friendly. “We were excited to work with Felling Trailers on their EZ Tilt project and look forward to the future development and growth of this suspension system in the market.” says Bob Boone, director of sales – towables for Lippert Components Inc.
