  • Patriot Lift technology has been recognized by OSHA as eliminating muscular skeletal injuries caused by manually raising and lowering the landing gear on trailers. Studies show that the incidence of drivers injured by manually operating the landing gear is 2.5% year. The percentage increases 4-fold to 10% with drivers aged 50 and older as well as women drivers.
  • Fleets interested in retaining experienced drivers, as well as hiring females drivers, should be aware of these statistics. In many cases, the reduction in worker compensation provides a payback for the implementation of the automation. The other benefits will also improve the payback.
