Industry’s Undisputed Best Wheel and Track System

The track and wheel design utilizes a unique ‘V’ groove, eliminating the need for numerous, secondary guide wheels. This design also eliminates wheel ‘flat spots’ commonly seen in competitor models.

A built-in bump rail reduces impact damage and further maximizes overall system longevity.

1.1 Internal Track Design Increases System Longevity

The Conestoga was designed to house the wheels within the track system, providing increased wheel protection from the trailer load and outdoor elements.

The stainless steel track and steel V-groove shaped wheels allow the operator to fully open and close the system with ease.

Wheels are not exposed to the elements

Steel on steel equals ease of rolling and less maintenance

Uplift Bows Reduce Tarp Sag

Uplift bows are designed to reduce tarp sag and maximize internal load clearance. Spring shocks on the Conestoga uplift bows absorb vibrations from road conditions and extend system and tarp life.
