Felling Trailers recently introduced its newly designed removable attachment rack for the IT-I (industrial tilt) trailer model line.
The removable attachment rack is a bolt-on feature mounted on the IT-I’s 5-foot stationary platform and sits inside the stake pockets on the exterior of the trailer, then is bolted in place. The rack is an ideal pairing with the IT-I tilt trailer, Felling said, providing ample room to transport a skid steer on the 18-foot tilt deck, along with multiple attachments and various job site tools like shovels and brooms on the rack. The ability to transport these jobsite tools in one trip, safely and efficiently, saves the operator and crew time and miles.
For functionality and flexibility, the attachment rack has a 54-inch deck height, allowing ample room to transport larger attachments such as grapple forks, trenchers and stump grinders on the stationary deck below the rack. The top rack provides generous space, 5 feet by 81 inches, to transport dirt/snow buckets, tillers or rollers.
Keeping the load secure, the attachment rack has an angled lip on the front, and each side has a rub rail and stake pockets, providing the operator several points of securement. Additional storage for shovels/brooms is located on the roadside of the attachment rack with three bolt-on tubes. Built strong enough to carry the load, the removable attachment rack offers a capacity of 2,500 pounds.
