The Landoll Corporation Trailer Division unveiled the next-generation Landoll trailer at its annual dealer meeting held at the Landoll World Headquarters in Marysville, Kansas, on April 24. The 400 Series Traveling Axle Trailers are the first models that have received the new hydraulic operating systems and the all-new Grote lighting package. Dealers saw firsthand the amazing transformation the trailers have undergone, with increased operational speed and the dynamic lighting package that increases visual awareness and driver safety.

“The new hydraulic operating system, nicknamed HOSS, was a total collaboration between customers, vendors and the Landoll engineers,” says Jim Ladner, Landoll Corporation’s national sales manager. HOSS took over a year to develop. Research started in late 2013 with customer interviews revealing great opportunities to improve. Operational efficiencies, heat buildup and noise reduction, and improved driver safety were focus points. Brad Bergman, Landoll engineering project manager, explains, “The industry is changing to higher flow systems and the new 20 gpm hydraulic system has increased the operational speed of all functions. The axle travel and winch line speed have increased by as much as 65 percent.”

“You have to see it to believe it,” said one of the dealers attending the meeting. “The visual impact of the trailer at night is impressive.” The new 53-foot Landoll Trailer has 22 side marker lights. “We changed every light and harness on the trailer,” says Gary Dwerlkotte, Landoll sales coordinator. “Lighting is all about safety. We kept adding lights until we maximized visual awareness.” 

“We worked closely with Grote engineers to develop this custom-built system. Grote had just released its new micro-nova LED lights and it was just what we were looking for,” says Loren Wassenberg, Landoll project manager. This high-intensity LED light has a 160-degree projection, making it the best choice for the side marker application. The Clear White lens and a chrome surround were chosen to give the trailer great eye appeal, day or night.

The new A Series 440 and 455 will be 2016 models. The first arrivals to dealerships are set for July. Public showings will be available at several association shows and dealer events in upcoming months. Landoll dealers have expressed excitement to offer this new trailer to their customers. “This is the biggest jump forward we’ve had in years,” says Ladner.
