Southaven, Miss. (Feb. 8, 2007) Specifically designed to meet the transportation demands of the rental industry, the new Terex® HFT 70RS Rental Equipment Trailer is ideal for transferring equipment to and from customer jobsites, and it™s a smart choice for large operations with substantial fleet transportation needs.
This new trailer is designed to increase productivity and offer features that specifically cater to the rental industry,â€ said John Norton, Terex product manager. Most rental yards carry quite a bit of low ground clearance equipment, such as slab scissors and compact utility loaders. With its low break-over angle, the HFT 70RS allows operators to drive equipment onto the trailer rather than having to winch it. Also, this trailer offers enhanced traction on the ramp, which makes it ideal for loading equipment with tires or in need of additional traction.â€
Accommodating the transportation of a variety of rental equipment from site to site, the main deck on the HFT 70RS is 29 ft 5 in (8.97 m) long and 102 in (2.59 m) wide along with additional length on the 9 ft (2.74) gooseneck deck and the 10 ft (3.05 m) extended hydraulic ramp. The tail section provides ample ramp length for an easy loading slope with a total length of 14 ft 6 in (4.42 m). Specifically, the folding tail flips out and lowers to the ground and creates a 6° break-over angle, which allows a wide range of equipment to drive up the ramp and onto the main deck without using a winch. The HFT 70RS comes standard with an automatic hydraulic tail lock system and its starburst decking provides excellent traction to help efficiently move equipment on and off the trailer.
The tail section on the HFT 70RS rental trailer is designed for powerful performance with the capability to lift and carry up to 30,000 lbs (13,608 kg) of equipment, and the trailer has an overall net capacity to carry up to 70,000 lbs (31,750 kg). Two lockable toolbox compartments on the gooseneck of the HFT 70RS provide ample storage of additional tools and equipment accessories needed on the jobsite. An optional 20 hp hydraulic power unit is available in place of the toolboxes.
The Terex® HFT 70RS Rental Equipment Trailer comes with a competitive 1-3-5 limited warranty, which offers one year of electrical, three years of hydraulic and five years of structural component coverage.
