US trailer manufacturer Landoll has unveiled the “Next Generation Landoll” (NGL) at its annual dealer meeting held at The Landoll World Headquarters in Kansas.
According to Landoll, the 53-foot (16m) 400 Series Traveling Axle Trailers are the first models to receive the new hydraulic operating systems for increased operational speed and 22 Grote micro-nova LED side marker lights to increase visual awareness and driver safety.
“The new hydraulic operating system, nicknamed HOSS, was a total collaboration between customers, vendors, and the Landoll engineers,” said Jim Ladner, Landoll Corporation’s National Sales Manager.
“The industry is changing to higher flow systems and the new 20 GPM hydraulic system has increased the operational speed of all functions. The axle travel and winch line speed have increased by as much as 65 per cent,” said Brad Bergman, Landoll Engineering Project Manager.
“We changed every light and harness on the trailer,” said Gary Dwerlkotte, Landoll Sales Coordinator.
“Lighting is all about safety. We kept adding lights until we maximised visual awareness.”
Landoll expects the first arrivals to dealerships in July, with public showings occurring at several association shows and dealer events in upcoming months.
