About Versatran Retriever Trucks
The Versatran Retriever is a heavy equipment transport truck featuring a patented deck design that creates a 10 to 14-degree loading angle. The loading ramp extension and vertical deck movement are powered by the truck's air system which permits loading and unloading with the truck engine off. These heavy haulers are perfect for transporting farm equipment, tractors, backhoes, fork lifts, scissor lifts, excavators, skid loaders, and even small bulldozers.
The Versatran Transport Retriever features an innovative air operated curved platform and ramp system that offers greater hauling capacity, faster cycle times, lowest deck height in the industry, as well as lift operation without idling the truck. This design concept saves fuel and reduces emissions while significantly improving our customer's delivery efficiency.
The deck design features:
- Shallowest loading angle in the industry (as low as 10.8 degrees)
- Low center of gravity
- Improved ride stability and handling
- Keyslot tie-down points every 17"
- Deck height levels as low as 41.00" allow for quick and easy loading and unloading of equipment (lowest in the industry)
- High strength 5/16" thick 50 ksi steel deck & ramp materials providing durable handling of concentrated equipment loads
- High traction epoxy deck coating improves safety for equipment and operators
