Razor International’s Razor Drive electronic, automated trailer landing gear control system is now Bluetooth-enabled and Smart Trailer ready.

Through the Razor Connect app for Apple or Android phones, drivers and fleets using Razor Drive can control electric trailer landing gear systems remotely using Bluetooth and an integration with on-board trailer telematics systems.

Information available in the app includes the status of the landing gear, including its position and whether it is being raised or lowered. Activity logs are also available in the app for troubleshooting.

The ruggedized, self-contained electric device raises and lowers semi-trailer landing gear with the press of a button. With additional features of an optional wireless remote control and failsafe manual backup, Razor Drive makes it easy for drivers of all statures and physical capabilities to hook and drop trailers, Razor International officials said in a press release.

“While drivers will find it more convenient to deploy and retract the trailer landing gear using Razor Drive from their phones, the ability to remotely know the status of the legs also enhances safety,” said Chris Guttormsson, vice president of sales and marketing at Razor International USA.
