Center 3rd Ramp

Center 3rd Ramp Center 3rd Ramp on a Tag-Along is an optional ramp in the center of the manual rear ramps. It offers safer loading of narrow machines, like rollers. Trailers using the Center 3rd Ramp also often have ramp wedge extensions for a closer edge to the ground.

Center Boards (Center Decking Boards)

Center Boards An optional accessory on many ROGERS platform deck trailers, Center Boards are the decking that sits between the mainbeams on the deck of the trailer. The decking can be either permanently installed (using carriage bolts and floor clips) or loose (held in place with spring hold-downs). Loose Center Boards can then be used with the trailer's side brackets to widen the trailer deck by up to two feet for wider machines.

Cover Boards

Cover Boards Located in the center of the rear frame, the Cover Boards provide traction for rollers and tracks, or the Cover Boards can be removed for access to a boom trough for excavators.

Croucher®

Croucher® Croucher® is the registered trademark name for the front slope design on the platform decks of ROGERS detachable gooseneck trailers. The front portion of the main beams are tapered on the top and bottom for easier loading as though the trailer is "crouching" close to the ground. The beam hooks on the trailer frame are also positioned at or below the front slope profile in order to allow easier loading of rollers and similar machinery.
