Manual Rear Ramps

Manual Rear Ramps Manual Rear Ramps are commonly used with trailers having a Beavertail, including detachable gooseneck, fixed gooseneck, and Tag-Along models. The ramps help to make rear loading safer and easier. ROGERS Manual Rear Ramps are laterally adjustable to aid in the loading of machines of various widths and equipped with springs to assist the operator lifting the ramps off the trailer or off the ground. These ramps are available in two styles: wood-covered and ladder-style. Wood-covered ramps are good for loading track equipment while self-cleaning ladder ramps are good for loading rubber-tired equipment.

Maxi Brakes

Maxi Brakes Maxi Brakes is an another name for spring brakes. This type of brake has two chambers; one that acts the same as a standard brake chamber, and a second chamber that contains a very powerful mechanical spring that acts as a fail-safe should the air brake system lose air pressure. The Maxi Brake also serves as a mechanical parking brake to prevent a trailer from rolling when parked on inclined surfaces.

Mechanical Backup Alarm

Mechanical Backup Alarm A Mechanical Backup Alarm is attached to the hub of a curbside wheel and automatically sounds when the wheel moves backward.

Mechanical Height Control

Mechanical Height Control The Mechanical Height Control is a device which allows the operator to adjust the ride height of a trailer equipped with air ride suspension +/- 3 inches from normal ride position. It is used to manage overhead or ground clearance situations. The Mechanical Height Control is available in two versions; Standard and Whittle style. The standard style has the control level mounted to the inside of the trailer rear frame and is standard equipment on virtually all ROGERS trailers equipped with air ride suspensions. The Whittle style moves the control lever to the outside of the rear frame to the wheel well area and is available as an optional accessory.

Motor Grader Ramps

Motor Grader Ramps Motor Grader Ramps are an accessory only available on ROGERS fixed gooseneck trailers. These ramps allow rubber-tired machines with high ground clearance (such as motor graders) extra space to load over the gooseneck. The low profile of the ROGERS fixed gooseneck makes access easier.
