The Chain Drive

Chain Drive Delivery System

Quick, Easy, and Efficient

All Trailers Come Standard With New Features

These special features made the Contral trailer quick – easy and efficient and most of all safe for use by the driver for the transport and delivery of containers.

Anti Skid Deck Paint

Anti Skid Deck Paint – Applied to the deck from front to rear to act as a Passive Safety System for drivers

Morning dew or rain – snow – icy conditions make the smooth steel deck very slippery and dangerous to walk on especially when in the tilted position.

The Anti Skid Deck Paint is rough surface and gives the driver traction to walk on it even if wet…..so a real time – real life passive safety system that is always in place ready to serve.

Rear Approach Plate

Rear approach plate – 1/2″ thick – heavy duty steel plate that is bent to face the ground at the last three inches at rear of the plate.

The bent 3″ portion forms a slight curve downward in the metal allowing the container being pulled onto the approach plate to easily slide right onto the deck with no resistance since the flat edge of the 1/2″ steel plate is facing the ground.

Reduces the risk of the container being caught on the edge of the approach plate and causing the winch to pull too hard with too much resistance and break the chain.

Exterior ignition setup

Exterior ignition setup – We take the ignition switch panel and extend it outside of the engine compartment and position it on the horizontal neck beam so the driver exits his truck – turns left and there at eye level is the ignition switch.

The Exterior positioning of the ignition switch saves the driver from having to climb onto the trailer to reach the ignition switch…again – quick – easy – efficient and safe operation.

Wireless remote control

Wireless remote control – LODAR – Four (4) function – allows driver to control the tilt cylinders – sliding axle cylinders and the winch ( one or two if so equipped ) from inside the truck or anywhere outside the truck and within 50′ of the truck.

The wireless remote gives the driver flexibility to walk around the container being delivered and watch from either side or back of truck to see that the container is going to arrive from the deck to the exact position the customer wants his container for easy access.

Again the Wireless remote allows for quick – easy – efficient and safe delivery or pickup.

Heavy Duty Side Guide Rails

Heavy Duty Side Guide Rails – 4″ tall x 1/2″ thick x 6″ skid plate ( 8′ on the ERU models ) with Heavy Duty lock pins.  The 1/2″ thick x 6″ wide steel skid plate allows the container metal against metal to reduce resistance and easily slide in place with the winch pulling it on or pushing it off.

The Guide rails allow the container to be pulled straight on the deck for pickup and there are removable Stop Blocks positioned in the deck front and rear to stop the container ( 20′ or 40′ ) exactly where the holes are on the Guide rail so that the Lock pins will slide right into the container Corner casting holes to quickly and easily secure the container.

The Locking Guide rails eliminate the need for the driver to have to throw nylon securement straps over the containers and ratchet them in place to secure the container (s) – two straps per 20′ and 4 straps per 40′ container.

Time saved – 30 minutes on every pickup and delivery – again quick – easy and efficient – time saving device and safety, keeping the driver from rotator cuff injuries speaks for itself.

Chain Drive Delivery System

Once the engine is turned on and Pusher Bar is locked onto the chain in front of the container then the lever to engage the hydraulic winch is pressed causing the winch to move the chain links towards the rear of the trailer and the pusher bar engages with the front of the container and quickly and easily slides the container down the side 6″ wide guide rail skid plate making for an exact delivery location on job site each and every time.

Reversing the process to load a container a Corner casting chain is attached to the main chain and connects into the two front corner castings of the container at which time the chain drive is reversed making the chain pull forward towards the front of the trailer and quickly and easily moving the container into place on the trailer for quick and easy securement with the Locking pins.

Very quick – easy and efficient and safe every time – time saving device for sure.

Sliding axles

Sliding axles – axles slide forward 8′ ( 6′ / 10′ on other models )  allowing the trailer to have a tighter pivot point when trying to position a container into a tight delivery location.

The sliding axles when slid forward allow for the trailer to be tilted to a low incline angle (10 degrees ) for quick – easy discharge.  Quick – easy – efficient delivery every time.

Tool Box

Tool Box – holds all the Chain drive attachments – Nylon straps / ratchets – Pry bar – other tools as needed

Mounted on driver side of trailer’s neck.

Spare tire

Spare tire – mounted on curbside of trailer’s neck

Landing gear legs

Why the Chain Drive Delivery System?

Very quick – easy and efficient and safe every time – time saving device for sure.

The Contral Chain Drive first originated in 1995 when it became readily apparent that a Steel cable couldn’t push anything including a container off a tilted delivery trailer’s deck….it was a tug of war to see if the driver would win or the container would win …..it was very difficult and dangerous trying to back up the trailer quickly and slam on the brakes to give the empty container the momentum needed to fly off the back edge of the trailer and hopefully land within 6′ of where it was intended to go.

So out of delivery defeat came delivery success – THE CHAIN DRIVE – Two steel sprockets – a large sprocket at the front of the trailer and a smaller sprocket at the rear called a return sprocket with 1/2″ thick x 3″ chain links in an endless loop around the sprockets provides the push power and pulling power to unload and load both empty or loaded containers (ERU 53).

Once the engine is turned on and Pusher Bar is locked onto the chain in front of the container then the lever to engage the hydraulic winch is pressed causing the winch to move the chain links towards the rear of the trailer and the pusher bar engages with the front of the container and quickly and easily slides the container down the side 6″ wide guide rail skid plate making for an exact delivery location on job site each and every time.

Reversing the process to load a container a Corner casting chain is attached to the main chain and connects into the two front corner castings of the container at which time the chain drive is reversed making the chain pull forward towards the front of the trailer and quickly and easily moving the container into place on the trailer for quick and easy securement with the Locking pins.

Very quick – easy and efficient and safe every time – time saving device for sure.
