Felling Trailers Inc. has released an advanced design of its I Series model line. The company has also streamlined its production process to reduce production time.

The hitch plate has been simplified to reduce the number of welds needed, increasing the strength of the final construction.

An additional 2 inches have been added to the ramp width, making the center gap between ramps now 18 inches.

The tongue area now has the capacity to accommodate a range of toolbox sizes. The tailboard features four LED tail lights and is also designed to extend deck life by providing a level transition onto rear deck boards when loading.

CASE offers cost of ownership calculator

Users choose the equipment category and model and how long they plan to own the machinery, along with anticipated hours of use. Then owning, operating and maintenance costs are factored in to calculate an hourly cost for the life of the piece of equipment.

“Adding equipment to a fleet and growing a business is based on utilization and whether that piece of equipment can be profitable,” said Brad Stemper, product manager for CASE Construction Equipment. “We’re helping contractors and owner/operators take the ambiguity out of that calculation.”

The calculator shows the cost benefits of the CASE ProCare program and examines local factors such as fuel and labor costs.

“The buyer can then use that number to ultimately make the decision that is best for their business,” Stemper said.
