Rental, the nationally recognized magazine serving rental equipment professionals, has named the FT-16 IT-I drop deck industrial tilt equipment trailer as one of the Rental 2020 Editor’s Choice Award winners.
The 2020 Rental Editor’s Choice Awards represent the equipment rental industry’s best products gaining interest from end-users and rental professionals alike. Rental’s editorial team chose winners like the FT-16 IT-I based on several different factors, including innovation utility for the rental market and audience engagement (most clicks, page views, inquiries) on ForConstructionPros.com.
The FT-16 IT-I is a drop deck tilt trailer with a 5-ft. stationary deck and an 18-ft. tilt deck. The trailer is equipped with a removable attachment rack mounted on the front stationary deck; sitting inside the stake pockets on the trailer’s exterior, and is bolted in place. The rack is an ideal pairing with the IT-I tilt trailer, providing ample room to transport a skid steer on the 18′ tilt deck, multiple attachments, and various job site tools like shovels and brooms on the rack. The ability to transport all of these job site tools in one trip, safely, and efficiently saves the operator and their crew time and miles.
Functionality and flexibility, the attachment rack has a 54″ deck height allowing ample room to transport larger attachments such as grapple forks, trenchers, stump grinders, etc. on the stationary deck below the rack. The top rack provides a generous amount of space, 5′ x 81″, to transport dirt/snow buckets, tillers, or rollers. Keeping the load secure, the attachment rack has an angle lip on the front, and each side with rub rail and stake pockets, providing the operator several points of securement. Additional storage for shovels/brooms is located on the attachment rack’s roadside with three (3) bolt-on tubes. Built strong enough to carry the load, the removable attachment rack offers a capacity of 2,500 lbs.
