Standard Level Deck Option
Beavertail ramp systems on Transcraft DTL 2100 and DTL 3000 drop-deck trailers now come standard with the level deck option. With this option, the Beavertail ramp system can be loaded all the way to the end of the trailer with the addition of four-by-four timbers.

Beavertails have adjustable ramps that allow the user to place them the full width of the trailer for loading wider equipment or slide them inward to accommodate machinery with narrow wheelbases. A spring-assisted lift package is standard to help the user lift and lower the ramps for loading.

Air Ratchet
With a flex head that pivots 45 degrees in both directions, the new AT7143/8-inch square drive Blue-Point Air Ratchet from Snap-on Tools Company gives professional tool users maneuverability, power and operating comfort, says the company.

This enables users to pivot the ratchet head a full 45 degrees up or down to deliver up to 40 foot pounds of torque for driving or loosening threaded bolts in hard-to-reach places. Besides the flex head, the tool features a molded, ergonomic handle grip for maximum comfort and control. The pneumatic ratchet weighs 3.35 pounds and is 10.6 inches in length.

The AT714 features a continuously variable throttle control and the maximum free speed of the unit’s air motor is 200 RPM. The tool accepts compressed air at pressures up to 90 PSIG, and consumes an average of 2.5 cubic feet of air per minute.

The new air ratchet also works with suitable extension bars, universal joints and socket adapters to increase its range of utility for a variety of applications.
