Up-N-Atom announces the Retriever, a patented low-profile truck bed to replace pickup trucks with trailers, hydraulic roll-back trucks, hook loaders and semi trailers for hauling heavy industrial equipment. The truck's own air system serves as the power source to raise and lower the hinged deck and bi-fold ramp. The deck offers a traversing winch mount that travels the full width of the deck, making side-by-side loading or off-center hookups faster and safer. The Retriever is available with either dual, lightweight, aluminum slide-out ramps or with a full-width, air-operated, steel folding ramp. The deck is available in three capacity ratings: 7.5 tons for chassis to 30,000 GVWR, 10 tons for chassis to 33,000 GVWR and 15 tons for chassis to 54,000 GVWR. All models are available in 18- to 26-foot lengths in 2-foot increments.
