These load leveling bridges are an essential tool for truckers transporting flat bed loads on a step deck trailer. Load levelers have an adjustable offset stake pocket post that can be rotated different positions to allow an 1/2" of adjustment of overall width to accommodate most drop deck trailers by simply pulling a pin and rotating. These load levelers will fit trailers with a 18", 20", 22", or 26" drop including Doonan, Featherlite, and Transcraft stepdeck trailers. The stake pockets adjust from 97-1/4" to 97-3/4" wide (inside measurement of stake pockets across width of trailer). Load leveler bridges can be set up in minutes and are secured with chains and binders (not included). Welded brackets on bridges secure a 4x4 piece of wood. 100% aluminum construction keeps each load leveler bridge under 70 lbs so they are easy to manage. No more back injuries associated with heavy steel load leveler bunks.

We also sell Load Leveler/Ramp combo kits if a modular loading ramp is needed.

Wow. I was amazed at the fabulous service and product. Several places I contacted told me it would be two to three weeks to get these. With Discount Ramps he said it would be three days. Low and behold I had my load levelers in three days. Wonderful people to deal with and a super product.
