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 the fast loading for the payload equivalent of two trailers.

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.
