Eagle Converter Dolly
The highest performing dolly in the trucking industry
The Eagle’s sturdy design and revolutionary bolt-together frame provide superior ride and stability, lower maintenance costs, better handling, and up to 16% longer tire wear. Look at this list of benefits you’ll have a difficult time finding on any other dolly:
- Ease of handling and safety
- Smoothest ride
- Highest stability
- Durability and long life
- Longest tire life
- Worry-free fifth wheel
SMOOTHEST RIDE, EASIEST HANDLING AND PROVEN DURABILITY
EASE OF HANDLING AND SAFETY
At last, a dolly that’s easy to move. We engineered drawbar weight and counter balance into the Eagle dolly to give it superior balance.
The two-stage, traverse leaf spring suspension system ensures the smoothest spring ride on the road – loaded or empty.
Imagine having 18% better protection against rollovers. The Eagle has a “no slack” suspension utilizing transverse springs mounted on the frame and suspension components mounted in rubber “isolation blocks.” Together, this eliminates free play and improves stability against rollovers. This built-in stability creates better tracking while diminishing sway or unusual “wheel hop” because the load is pulled directly from the axle, rather than through a platform mount.
DURABILITY AND LONG LIFE
Built to last for years. The Eagle utilizes 1/4″ steel construction that essentially doubles the strength of our drawbar. Additionally, an 11-stage e-coat priming process protects against corrosion and provides a base for a durable finish that resists rust 400% longer than competitive coatings.
LONGEST TIRE LIFE
Your tires will last 16% longer with Silver Eagle dollies, giving you significantly more cash in your pocket over the life of ownership. Cambered and toed-in axle alignment provides for alignment under dynamic load and return steering characteristics. Silver Eagle rigid drawbar acts as a torque arm. Starting and stopping torque applies against the axle and, accordingly, no axle and spring windup occurs during braking. This feature strongly contributes to Silver Eagle’s longer tire mileage.
WORRY-FREE FIFTH WHEEL
Our exclusive fifth wheel includes a front pull handle that allows dolly hook-up from the side of the trailer, rather than under. Additionally, the fifth wheel:
- Visually shows when king pin is captured, reducing high-pinning mistakes
- Requires half as much exertion to open the jaw
- Lowers workman comp claims because it lessens strain on muscles and joints and reduces exposure to back, shoulder, arm and neck injuries
- Assures clean uniforms
- Produces more productive drivers
