Felling Trailers

Felling Trailers’ Self-Loading Turret Reel trailer, has a 360-degree hydraulically operated rotating turret assembly that can lock into any position when the directional control valve is released. Keeping mindful of equipment, time and operator safety, the FT-14-2 R Turret’s self-loading feature eliminates the need for extra equipment and operators onsite to lift and load the reel, as on a fixed reel trailer. 

The hydraulic payout/take-up assembly is a sealed-gear-driven unit. Keeping repair work to a minimum, there are no chains or sprockets to break or wear out. The drive unit is exceptionally smooth and quiet to operate, easily engages and disengages from the reel bar. Not only does it payout and retrieve, but options hydraulic brake tensioning eliminates the heat generated by traditional caliper and rotor. This reduces line gallop and allows for a longer tensioning duration. The generated heat is absorbed in the hydraulic oil and dissipated by the oil cooler.

This unit comes standard with an onboard hydraulic power supply. Felling uses a Honda GX 390 gas engine with electric start and recoil backup. The power pack is equipped with a 25-gallon hydraulic reservoir, a hydraulic oil return filter and a lockable theft-resistant enclosure. The FT-14-2 R Turret is rated for 2,250-psi continuous and 2,900-psi maximum and provides 8 gallons per minute.
