Pioneer’s updated tarping system

Pioneer has updated its Rack ‘n Pinion Tarping System to address durability, safety and reduced maintenance. The side assembly’s rack gear features a redesigned cylinder mount to help reduce cylinder strap breakage, and the main arm pivot point in the side plates now is thicker to help reduce wear and extend service life; the tarp arms now remain securely on the rear of the container without bouncing. A redesigned stabilizer bar with a reinforced mounting bracket and an enhanced tarp anchor tube retainment system help eliminate premature failures or breakage. The upper arm extensions also have been redesigned to make it easier to turn the roller shaft when preloading the roller spring and to prevent the shaft from seizing when the tarp roller is being serviced. The welded brass wear strip on the rack assembly has been replaced with a maintenance-free self-lubricating polymer bolt-in strip. Redesigned hose pivot bracket mounts help facilitate quick replacement of hydraulic hoses.
