Found on our LPT dump trailer (and an available option on model WDT), the heavy duty Telescopic Cylinder is a 3 stage cylinder that uses a KTI brand power-up, gravity-down system to help conserve energy. It is much like what’s been used for decades on semi-end dump trailers and heavy duty dump trucks.
Our Telescopic Cylinder boasts many benefits over the more traditional scissor-lift and dual cylinder setups:
- More front of body dumping leverage
- Handles imperfectly balanced loads more efficiently
- Ease of system maintenance due to front mount location
