In this article we will present which are the essential parts and equipment for truck drivers and we will explain the operation and advantages of each one of them.

Lifting and supporting with parking jacks

The parking jack is used for lifting and supporting small loads on equipment such as trailers and agricultural trailers. Its use facilitates adaptation to different heights, reduces the operator’s physical effort, optimizes production and prevents accidents.

This equipment allows these machines to be detached and used at rest and facilitates their restart. It should be used on trailers with reduced capacity, between 1,500 and 7,500 kg.

Robustec has parking jacks with three drive models – lateral, top and articulated – that offer more practicality and comfort in handling for the operator. In addition, the Robustec’s parking jacks have two driving speeds: high, to bring the foot closer to the ground, and low, to lift the load. They also offer three transmission options: lateral, top and articulated.

The pieces are finished in epoxy powder paint and electrolytic zinc coating, which ensures greater protection against aggressive environments.

Tow straps for towing vehicles

In their spare time, tow straps are used to tow vehicles and jeeps and to tie up motorcycles. Robustec’s tow straps are resistant, 100% polyester made, chemically treated to reduce water absorption and heat treated.
