What Are Lifting Deck Trailers?
Double Deck trailers are now commonplace; especially in trunking operations. However, the time to load a double deck is limited by the equipment needed to lift the load to the second deck level.
A Lifting Deck is a full length or rear 3/4 length deck which can be loaded at normal deck height. Pressing a button will lift the entire deck (and load) up, and out of the way, permitting a second full-length payload to be posititioned on the lower deck.
This means that the payload equivalent of two trailers can be loaded quickly and efficiently.
Single Ram & Pulley System
Don-Bur's proven single ram and pulley system generates a consistent, uniform lift which is unaffected by varying load weights on various parts of the deck and is less susceptible to the stressing and flexing of the trailer.
52 UK Pallet Capacity
Don-Bur's Lifting Decks were the first in the industry to offer a 52 UK pallet carrying capacity.
When specified with Don-Bur's 7.5mm thick 'Blade' panel, operators can achieve a deck width of 2440mm across the entire length of the Lifting Deck tub, which is sufficient to carry 26 pallets on each deck.
Wedge Lifting Decks
Don-Bur 'Wedge' Lifting Deck trailers provide operators with full height loading on both decks, capable of achieving deck clearances of up to 1928mm (6' 4") and a 52 UK pallet capacity on all types.
The addition of a two-tier tail-lift provides the extra ability to drop to ground level; ideal for large bay-to-store deliveries.What Other Tail-Lifts Are There?
