Felling Trailers marks 35th anniversary

Felling Trailers celebrated its 35th year in business with its first annual Dealer Appreciation Days recently. The two-day event September 17-18 drew together Felling's dealers from as far away as Alberta, Canada.

The celebration started with shop tours showcasing some of Felling's latest technologies, such as its custom Bug-O side beam motion system. A product showcase displayed trailers from Felling's traditional lines as well as some of its newest products. Two of the showcased lines were the Perimeter Frame-Hydraulic Tail (Rigid Neck Semi) and the Air Tilt (Deck-Over). Both of these models were released in summer 2009. Other trailer lines on display included Felling's reel and pipe coil trailers as well as a custom boat trailer, from Felling's Custom Trailer Division. Dealers then attended a banquet in the evening where awards were presented:

  • 2008 Top Dealer: Don Laing Trailer Sales, Alberta

  • 25 Years of Service: Lano Equipment, Anoka MN

    • Lano Equipment, Shakopee MN

    • Lano Equipment, Corcoran MN

Four classes were provided for attendees:

  • Northland Capital — Paul Pfannenstein and Michele Hiscock presented some of the new leasing/financing opportunities available to consumers from Northland/Felling.

  • Minnesota State Patrol — Roger Istvanovich gave a presentation on towing rules/regulations and towing safety.

  • Dexter Axle — Todd Degroote talked about Dexter's new Nev-R-Adjust braking system, standard on all electric brake Felling trailers with 7,000-lb-capacity and under axles.

  • Felling Engineering Department — Todd Skalbeck, head engineer, gave a presentation on the X-Force (Felling's soon to be released line of hydraulic detachable gooseneck trailers)

The event was capped with a door prize drawing for Felling's FT-10 LX skid-steer trailer which was won by Tom Stern, West Side Tractor, Chicago IL.
