Felling Trailers’ Hydraulic Detach Gooseneck Line with X-FORCE Detach
December 6, 2010

Felling Trailers’ hydraulic detach gooseneck line  with the X-FORCE XF-110-3 HDG-L (55 ton capacity) has a user-friendly method of attaching the gooseneck to the main deck. This was accomplished by designing a pointed T-1 “hook” on the bottom of the gooseneck that self-aligns into a pocket on the front of the main deck. The top plate of this “pocket” is shear bolt protected, which means repair is fast and nominal in the event the operator misaligns the hook above the pocket and punches the top plate out when attempting to lift the trailer.  Maintaining the user-friendly design, once the hook is fully in the pocket, a spring loaded T-1 bar lock (Tru-lock) automatically pops up behind the hook to lock the gooseneck to the main deck. The spring loaded “Tru-lock” system has an indicator arm connected through to the left front corner of the main deck, which is visible from the tractor mirror.
