Propstands

Range of propstands to support trailers up to 3500kg

Propstands help to maintain the integrity of the trailer chassis by supporting it during loading and unloading and they should be used even if the trailer is still coupled to a vehicle.

Payloads are not evenly distributed when loading occurs and, when complete, loads should always be evenly distributed around the trailer to avoid snaking and pitching during transportation. Swivel-prop stands have the advantage over fixed-foot by locating a level on uneven ground.

Side winding jacks are specially designed so that they can lift a trailer safely, perhaps leveling it so that equipment on board can be run whilst on the trailer. They have large load-spreading feet, a powerful winding ratio and will resist horizontal loadings so that the trailer remains stable even with the wheels off the ground.
