TS-5000 Trailer Stabilizer

TS-5000 Trailer Stabilizer

Helps prevent accidents due to landing gear collapse

Provide back-up landing gear support for spotted trailers with the TS-5000 Trailer Stabilizer. Seldom used or rusted landing gear may collapse under extreme weight conditions. When the trailer stabilizer is positioned snug under a spotted semi-trailer at the loading dock, it will support a static load capacity up to 140,000 lbs.! The extra wide top plate (66”) and twin vertical supports will help absorb momentum caused from landing gear collapse and help minimize the trailer nose from dropping or tipping.

Extra support for heavy and uneven loads

When fork trucks load at the front of trailers, the trailer can become nose heavy and tip. Uneven and heavy loads placed at the front of trailers can also cause the trailer nose to tip. The TS-5000 Trailer Stabilizer can help prevent trailer up-ending and trailer tip-over.

Support 65% of the trailer width

The 66” top plate of the TS-5000 covers 65% of the total trailer width (102”) and more than half of a 48” pallet loaded snug to one side of a trailer. This extra-wide top plate provides safe and secure support, especially for uneven loads when there is a greater risk of trailer tip-over.

Addresses Industry Standards

  • OSHA Regulation 1910.178: Fixed jacks may be necessary to support a semi-trailer and prevent upending during loading or unloading when the trailer is not coupled to a tractor.
  • TTMA Technical Bulletin No. 57: It is recommended that an adequate stabilizing device or devices be employed at the front of the trailer in all cases where a trailer is being loaded or unloaded.
  • AIAG 3.3.6 Shipping and Receiving Handbook: Trailer jacks are required for “spotted” trailers to provide support in the event of landing gear failure.
