Power Tail (Patent Pending)
The Power Tail (patent pending) is a hydraulic powered trailer tail that replaces typical trailer ramps with a 100% powered ramp system. This allows you to make the trailer ready to load and unload at the touch of a button. The tail rotates a full 180 degrees to serve both as a tail for loading and deck for storing cargo.
The PJ Power Tail is easier, safer, faster, and more reasonably priced than anything else on the market.
Never Lift Another Ramp
Gone are the days of physically flipping multiple ramps then carefully adjusting their position to load your equipment. With the touch of a button you will be able to quickly raise and lower the entire tail, saving your back and your time
Tail Lays Flat to Extend the Deck
In the closed position the tail is completely flat, allowing equipment & cargo to be loaded on top of the diamond plate on the Power Tail. This also reduces wind drag significantly compared to stand-up ramps.
Confidence-Inspiring and Safe
The super wide Power Tail gives you the confidence to load and unload equipment without the fear of missing a ramp. The angle cross-members are used on both the dovetail and Power Tail to maximize traction in all-weather situations. Also, the knife edge tail eliminates the initial “bump” when loading that can cause wheel spin.
Shorter and Lighter
Since the tail folds flush to the deck, you don’t have to worry about the 4-5 ft of tail overhang that is common on hydraulic dovetails. This fold-over tail and single cylinder design keep the Power Tail short and relatively light to maximize payload capacity. This allows the Power Tail to be installed on short 14k single wheel goosenecks (20 feet) all the way up to triple axle stepdeck trailers as long as 53 feet.
Smart and Highly Efficient Design
The Power Tail (patent pending) uses a single hydraulic cylinder to rotate the tail a full 180 degrees. This ingenious tail design is very mechanically efficient, using just a few moving parts with no wasted movement. This greatly reduces the overall cost and weight of the Power Tail.
