Telescoping Cylinder Technology is changing the way we approach building and designing our DUMP TRAILERS. The direct push design of the cylinder allows for maximum dumping leverage and puts far less stress on the front of the trailer than a traditional scissor lift hoist. Found on our LPT dump trailer (and an available option on model dual tandem gooseneck 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
