Felling Trailers added to its product line with the X55 Cross/Over Dump trailer. Primary applications for Felling’s X55 Cross/Over include hauling materials such as rip rap, clay, demolition, and a multitude of other materials that current bottom dumps cannot haul.
Felling’s X55 maintains 70% of weight over the chassis. This product design greatly minimizes rollover issues currently experienced in the side dump and end dump industry.
The X55 also has the ability to dump “on the move,” and it has the ability to dump at a higher speed than current bottom dumps. Because of the weight distribution, the operator does not see or feel movement in the tractor while the X55 is dumping, either on the move or while stationary. Additionally, because of the weight distribution, the operator does not see torque in the king pin.
The X55 has the ability to dump at 55° and is capable of dumping product that could possibly stick in other trailers.
