Tractor/trailers move commerce throughout the country and the world. It is a specialized industry utilizing drivers and logistics to get loads to their destinations. Many loads are food oriented or needed for “just in time manufacturing”, so time sensitive. Anything that can assist in making this commerce move quicker and safer is of tremendous benefit.

Drivers, especially good ones, are in demand. That is because the fleet drivers are, on average, older than they have ever been. Many women have also joined this talented group as well. Both can benefit from equipment meant to lessen their non-driving work load, increase safety margins, reduce injuries along with assisting on meeting the HOS requirements.

The XLT SYSTEM has been created to directly address all of the above by resolving the hand cranking of the landing gear. Safety is paramount and with trucking being one of the most injury prone industries TEDs (torque elimination devices) were also created to address that need.   The torque needed to accomplish this task must not be transmitted back to the user. It does this task effortlessly, efficiently and safely. Nothing like it on the market.


Due to the same connection methodology used: gooseneck, dump and utility trailers can also use the XLT Drill as well.  The TED safety straps that come with every kit will ensure torque is controlled allowing for the XLT System to be used right out of the box.


XLT Drill Component

High torque XLT Drill shown above handles landing gear along with goose neck, utility and dump trailers – Easily.

XLT Drill KIT shown above handles landing gear along with goose neck, utility and dump trailer jacks – Easily.

The Kit above is the standard Trailer Kit (not shown TED straps and tool bag). It consists of the XLT Drill, 110V Charger, 18 volt 4 amp hour Battery, Tool Bag, Trailer Coupler and latch pin, and pair of TED (torque elimination device) straps. Additional upgrade from 4AH to 5AH battery is available as well.


Above is the T-Coupler, retained on the XLT Drill,  and the latch pin which replaces the handle on the landing gear shaft.  The T-coupler has a set screw which ensures it will allow for use of the landing gear in both high and low speeds, easily activated by pushing/pulling on the XLT Drill handles.


Above the XLT Drill in use on a fleet has a TED Drill plate attached to it permanently with rods attached to it.  The user walks to the landing gear crank shaft and encompasses it with the coupler at the same time inserting the rods into either a TED trailer plate (shown above) or TED trailer bar.  Then a simple finger pull raises and lowers the trailer.  No cranking here with safety built in. Using the TEDs you are guaranteed there will be no torque transmitted to the user making it safe and quick.

Above is the TED I-Beam Trailer Plate which is easily the preferred and typical installation method for fleets due to its quick and easy install process (5-10 minutes).  Picture above also shows the optional handle hangar making it easy to utilize the landing gear when the XLT Drill is not available.
