Retriever has so few moving parts there is virtually nothing that can wear out. Retriever is built from such heavy gauge materials, there is virtually nothing that can be broken in normal use. Retriever is simply available for work more hours of more days than any unit requiring even modest upkeep.
Retriever offers a unique combination of lighter weight and extendability. You can haul different kinds and sizes of equipment with a single Retriever. Vehicle utilization improves. Revenue per mile increases. Margin expands. Replacement and upkeep costs diminish. Profits grow.
Work sites are not always ideal for delivering or picking up heavy, industrial equipment. On-the-job injuries can easily occur, and when they do, they present a major business expense.
If your delivery equipment options are only a semi-trailer and/or a rollback, you're often faced with the dilemma of too much or too little truck for the job. Retriever solves that problem because of it's ease of use and adaptability to a wide range or equipment.
The actual cost of a transport bed is the TOTAL of the bed's cost PLUS whatever extra you have to pay to upgrade the truck's chassis to accommodate the bed. With Retriever, there are no chassis upgrade charge.
Depending on the type of equipment you're presently using for transport, Retriever can save from $1,500 to $3,000 annually per vehicle in maintenance expenses.
Four truck-type, highly dependable Air Springs are mounted between Retriever's bed and the truck's chassis to raise and lower the rear deck.
The Retriever’s curved deck creates the lowest loading angle of any similar product...as low as 11° depending on the chassis being used. The deck is constructed of 5/16" high strength steel, on the Heavy Duty and Super Duty models.
Standard on all Retriever models, the No Idle System™ allows the already revolutionary truck bed to load and unload payloads up to 40,000 lbs. with the truck's engine turned OFF.
Versatran, Inc. has made transporting larger agricultural equipment easier and safer with the addition of the exclusive Lo-Rider Deck option to the many other unique features of the revolutionary Retriever truck bed.
