HAGERSTOWN, Md. (April 22, 2022) — Jerr-Dan, an Oshkosh Corporation company (NYSE: OSK), has announced a new option for their XLP carrier. The all new XLP Carrier Autogrid allows an operator to hook to a car quickly and easily without manually installing L-Arms.
Engineered with the operator in mind, the grid design offers a 3,500 lb. rating and a crossbar that can rotate 90 degrees either side of center. The grid pivot has a center detent bar that prevents excessive crossbar swing during set-up. The grid center drop area is designed to provide better support for tires as well as less sidewall push. The long-term cost of ownership and product longevity are addressed with replaceable wear items that include crossbar ends, L-arm tips, and plates at strategic locations. In addition to these standard elements, Autogrid customers may choose from several add-on options including wireless remote control, a dual-camera system, and boom level stop.
While Florida Tow Show attendees saw a live demonstration of the Autogrid option, an animated version of that demonstration is available to view here.
