Power Step manufactures both retractable ladder and retractable stair systems for front end loaders. We currently have systems available for the LeTourneau 1850, 1350 and the Cat 994 loaders. Additional applications are available.
Our L1850 and L1350 retractable ladder systems are designed to mount in factory mounting locations. When retracted the ladders remain up and out of the way from potential damage. Controls are located at ground and upper levels. A standard 24V power unit and valve package mounted at the base of the system provide dual action power to the cylinder actuator. A proximity limit switch is used to provide a signal to to prevent machine movement when the ladder is down.
Our L1350 retracting stairway package includes a replacement deck with pivots and integrated cylinder mounting which provides for a clean and compact installation. Dual stair and deck rails provide safe and efficient access to the lower deck level.
The new Cat 994 retractable stair system is designed to mount in the position of the rear bumper ladder, which eliminates climbing vertical ladders altogether. The convenient 45 degree stair system with dual retracting rails provides safe and efficient access to bumper level.
