Boniface VLA 5T

With challenging economic conditions, recovery and transport companies are looking for a reliable slidebed that can be utilized for a wide range of vehicles. The Boniface VLA 5T (Very Low Angle) has become the number one choice by many operators to meet that need.

The VLA 5T’s heavy duty double rack and pinion drives moves the bed backwards and forwards achieving a load angle between 6 and 8 degrees (depending on the chassis). The VLA 5T can easily handle box trucks or larger vans with long overhangs that drag when you load them on a conventional slidebed. You can also throw away those planks or ramps that look unprofessional and can easily move or slide causing damage when loading low clearance prestige and sports cars thanks to the VLA 5T’s low load angle. With the optional second car lift you can even increase your profits by transporting several vehicles at once.

 The full floating tilt allows for an easy one button operation to move the bed fully on or off and complies with the latest safety directives. This prevents any movement of the equipment when the operator releases the controls by integrating a brake in the drive motor and a check valve on the cylinders.

The powered tilt rams enable loading on hills or even when the weight is at the rear of the bed. The durable lightweight aluminium deck provides for increased payload and comes standard with a sliding hydraulic winch to allow you to maintain a straight pull on the disabled vehicles tow eye.
