Why use PTS Pneumatic Legs?
The PTS Pneumatic Trailer Support System eliminates the risk of upper limb musculoskeletal disorders/repetitive strain injuries and accidents caused by the use of traditional landing legs by replacing the hand wound operation with a simple automated push button system.
Each leg has a safe static load rating of 25 tonnes per leg (50 tonnes per set) as standard. The locking pin system is engineered to withstand the rigours of daily misuse
In a busy distribution hub where frequent drops are made the PTS50 comes into its own. The pneumatic trailer support system takes 5 seconds to drop and lock whereas a traditional hand device can take up to 3 minutes to secure.

For more than 100 years landing legs on semi-trailers have been injuring drivers
With today’s modern tractor units, there is simply no need for an adjustable trailer landing leg. With our industry’s culture of developing automated systems to reduce operational risks, the hand wound landing leg system has been mostly overlooked.

We have the solution – Prevention through Design
The PTS50 Pneumatic Trailer Support System has been designed with all the usual problems considered and alleviated by skilled engineers using the latest CAD modelling and Finite Element Analysis. Operation is by push button control and fed from the trailer’s air system. There is no need for the support system to raise or lower the trailer as this can be done using the airbags on the modern tractor unit therefore making this a safe static support rather than raise/lower system.
