A new relationship with trailer manufacturer XL Specialized of Manchester, Iowa, has allowed Zip’s to begin to stock the Slider (Sliding Axle Trailer), meaning Zip’s has Sliders with appropriate and attractive towing operator options available quickly.
To meet demand, XL Specialized has ramped up Slider production at its recently constructed state-of-the-art plant in Manchester, Iowa, and Zip’s has ordered Sliders in specific lengths with tie downs and lighting specifically for the towing industry. Options for trailers in stock include a wireless remote, 20,000 lb. winch, heavy-duty floor, aluminum wheels, extra LED clearance lights and strobe lights.
“The Slider, now available from Zip’s, gives you the heavy-capacity ground or dock loading you need for the hardest jobs,” says Paul Rottinghaus, Zip’s president. “Functionality is very, very good on this trailer. It’s a fine piece of equipment with low deck height and excellent paint and finish.”
“Our special arrangement with XL Specialized has made us specialists on the Slider for the towing market,” Rottinghaus adds. “We have inventory, pricing, expertise and a narrow focus on this product for towers. Previously, towers would be looking at as much as a year to get delivery on a Slider, but with our newly stocked inventory we’re able to decrease order delivery time. Plus, we can work with a tower on used trailer or wrecker trades, offer quality service and provide one-stop financing.”
The Slider provides versatility and numerous advantages over other flatbed trailers. The base capacity of the Slider is 70,000 lbs. and it includes a single, two-stage cylinder design for maximum travel and minimal maintenance.
Its deck can drop to a 15-degree angle, making loading and unloading easy. All controls are in a central location with driver side access. Among all of these benefits, a 12,000-pound winch comes standard and includes a roller for winch chain protection.
