Easy-Lifting Grille Guard

Magnum Grille Guard

Canada’s own Magnum Trailer and Equipment has announced a new innovation for its Moose Bumper/Grille Guard line, the Titan 2000 Easy Lift. It’s a “revolutionary” product, designed to be “a game changer”. It promises to delight truck drivers, the company says, and make their job both easier and safer.

It responds to a trend among truck operators who run in regions where large animal collisions are frequent. They’ve been asking for heavier types of protection in their grille guards and ‘roo bars’ and the like. But this has made opening the hood more difficult and in some cases exposes drivers to potential back injuries. It’s become a real issue, says Magnum, based in Abbottsford, B.C.

The Titan 2000 Easy Lift option is said to make the Grille Guard “exceedingly easy” to raise and lower even when the driver is standing on slippery surfaces.

“It’s the coolest innovation in the protection-bumper world since the creation of the protection bumper itself,” says Wayne Brown of Stahl Peterbilt in Edmonton.
