Weight saving solution with JOST optima

Ideal for long-distance transport applications, JOST OPTIMA is a new weight-optimised landing gear designed for greater efficiency.

When travelling across Europe, nearly all trailers on the road are equipped with telescopic landing gears from JOST.

This is no surprise, as JOST’s decades-long experience in the construction of landing gears means that they know exactly what their customers need. The landing gears from JOST are not only extraordinarily robust and particularly diverse but are also proven in daily use millions of times over.

With the landing gears’ flexible and modular design it is easy to adapt to all important customer requirements, from standard to specialised applications. The Modul landing gears all feature the patented drive, which is optimally protected due to its internal design, requires no maintenance and offers many other advantages during operation.

The large lift achieved by a single turn of the crank with a low cranking force makes operation easy and convenient. Switching between high and low gear is quick, easy and safe. The modular design also gives a variety of versions with different mounting and bolting heights, cranks, connection shaft lengths, and foot types.

All Modul landing gears are protected against environmental influences and falling rocks by a high-quality powder coating. OPTIMA is the ideal solution for long-distance transport applications. It is based on the highly reliable Modul components and offers a higher payload and thus higher trailer efficiency thanks to its low weight.

It is available in all three plate positions and four different mounting heights and con-forms with the market-standard mounting dimensions.
