    The Hydro chain driven crank provides positive traction. The crank handle rotates allowing the assembly to fit tight against the box wall. A ratchet safety system prevents the crank handle from rotating freely while closing the tarp system. The crank assembly components are plated to reduce corrosion. The specially coated chain (Hydro) is used to provide maximum corrosion resistance, far superior to zinc or nickel, while maintaining the strength and durability of carbon steel chain.

    The ECONO Flip Tarp systems are available in lengths 10 ft. to 28 ft. All units over 23 feet in length come standard with a rear lock assembly (see below)

    Heavy duty helical torsion springs on both sides provide equal resistance and tension control when operating the tarp system

    Manufactured from a superior plastic, the rear lock assembly is designed for easy and trouble free operation. With this unique design there are no straps required to secure the rear cross member.

     

     

    OPTIONAL
    Aluminum front hood/ wind deflector protects the front shaft and components from exposure to harmful elements.
