The Holland Group has unveiled a new landing gear system for both trailer and straight truck applications, the PowerLeg 20K series.

Developed in conjunction with Quest Transportation Products, PowerLeg is designed to be powered through the landing gear's transmission and can handle up to a 20,000-lb. load. Optional in-cab controls allow drivers to operate PowerLeg without having to leave the truck cab in bad weather or in tight docking situations.

Holland says the system can travel from the ground and back to its 1-in. resting place underneath the trailer or truck in about three seconds — almost five times faster than a manual crank landing gear system can operate.

The PowerLeg's floating riser nut helps to reduce dock walk and improves stabilization during loading and unloading. PowerLeg comes with a full five-year warranty that covers both parts and labor.
