Wheel Nut Indicators

Our wheel nuts are torqued to manufacturer specifications, and are then fitted with high-visibility wheel nut indicators. The indicators are fitted in a uniform pattern, so when a wheel nut has loosened, the indicator will become out of sequence. The wheel nut indicators are also heat sensitive. If there is a binding brake or seized bearing, the heat is transferred through the stud and nut. If this temperature exceeds 120º C (248º F), the indicator will start to blister around the circumference and eventually start to distort. Pre-flight walkaround checks now can include wheel nut checks.

Solar Power

We include our Model 8854 Solar System with a single solar panel with 4.3W of charging as standard equipment on all trailers we manufacture that utilize electric brakes or are equipped with an electric start Hydraulic Power Source. We have made this improvement to reduce customer maintenance costs, increase “up time” in field operations and provide the highest assurance to your users and community that the system will work as designed in the event the of a breakaway.

Uprights adjust to accommodate 72″/84″/96″/108″ Dia. x 50″W reels. Special saddle casting allows reel diameters as low as 22″ to be loaded.

Disc Overspin Brake

8″ Diameter ventilated bronze disc w/ manually activated calipers capable of 100 ft-lbs of overspin torque. Available reel width drops to 50″ based on the power arm addition.

Side Mount Overspin Brake

# 1600-02 Lever actuated overspin brake provides side reel pressure to control overspin via adjustment wheel. Can be used singularly or in combination w/ one unit on each side to exert separate braking control over two reels on a single bar. Designed for use where exact tension capabilities are not required.

Rim Drive Overspin Brake

18″ Dia rubber tire drives 12″ Bronze disc brake for overspin control. Braking unit is articulated into reel flange via manual screw-type actuator. Option adds an additional 18″ to trailer length.

Rim Drive Retreiver

Requires overspin brake foundation and includes full feathering, bi-directional valve for connection to external hydraulic power. 27 RPM @ 8 GPM Drive tire speed – final reel speed depends on reel size and can be approximated by the formula: 486/Reel Diameter.

Hand Pump
