Lightweight landing gear

The AlumiLightX and UL500, two new lightweight landing gears with internal gearboxes, work to reduce trailer weight. The AlumiLightX’s lower leg is made from polyester-coated steel to protect against corrosion, and its upper leg is made of extruded aluminum and features a heavy-duty reinforced strap. The UL500 is made of a re-engineered lift nut and high-strength, low-alloy steel. Each leg uses a grease tube for reduced maintenance.
