Walking Floor Trucks For Sale

A walking floor trailer offers a number of benefits compared to standard truck bodies. It can prove to be an efficient solution for loading and unloading loose material without requiring any additional equipment. Walking floor trailers- a type of ejector trailer - are also well suited to accommodating longer loads and enabling them to be removed from the load space without requiring that the side panels are opened or removed completely. With complicated hydraulic systems on board, a used trailer of this kind must be in good working condition in order to attract a buyer's attention.

The loading and unloading of loose materials such as earth, paper, wood chips or plastics can be a time-consuming and labour-intensive task, requiring extra machinery to be brought in to haul the contents of a trailer to the intended destination. And the upshot of transporting materials of this kind can be that the load space is left in need of thorough cleaning, eating further into your resources. But with a walking floor trailer, many of these problems can be solved in one fell swoop. As well as allowing loose material to be accommodated quickly and effectively in the rear, the moveable conveyor-style floor system will help to deposit the load in full later. Some models can achieve this in as little as five minutes, making them excellent for waste management and recycling as well as the construction industry.

Used Walking Floor TrailerMost models feature barn doors at the rear and rigid panel sides, though you can find modified specialist walking floor trailers that are curtain-sided for convenience. Other trailers will be better suited to handling goods that are transported on pallets. And while normally it would be necessary for a forklift truck to have access to the load space to extract these goods, with a conveyor system in place this is no longer a requirement. This makes walking floor trailers a more versatile type of truck body than most, since they can be deployed to locations with little or no additional equipment and still complete a delivery or collection effectively.

Choice of Suspension

Many walking floor trailers will come with air suspension and drum brakes. Air suspension is preferred over the more affordable spring shocks because this makes for a smoother ride and can also do a better job of handling the variable load weights which will be borne by it. Inside the body of the trailer there may be other additions to complement the hydraulically operated floor, such as automated netting solutions. This makes it important to check that everything is in an acceptable condition and working properly before you buy. A seller should be able to supply information about the trailer's previous uses, which will help you to assess whether or not it is appropriate for your needs.

Walking floor trailers are capable of entering areas where standard tipper or dumper trucks may not be able to reach. So for loose material and pallet transport alike, this type of truck body plays a crucial role in many businesses across the country and the world.
