Jerr-Dan unveiled its new Premium Shark 6-ton steel carrier, which delivers strong and uniform support without compromising payload capacity.

The new carrier features an exclusive 6 x 6 crossmember system that delivers equal or greater strength than other 8-inch crossmember spacing decks without the extra weight.

"The new Premium Shark 6-ton steel carrier is a significant step up in performance with 20 percent more capacity, and larger hydraulic cylinders and increased function speed," said Wilson Jones, Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president and interim president of Jerr-Dan Corporation. "With more standard features and enhanced performance, we expect this vehicle to boost productivity."

Available in 19-, 20- and 21-foot lengths and a 102-inch nominal width, the Premium Shark 6-ton carrier deck features two-piece, polished aluminum raised rails over new roll-formed rubrails as standard equipment. The roll formed rubrails deliver double the structural strength of typical 5 x 3 structural angle rails. In addition, an exclusive rubrail weld design eliminates more than 90 percent of direct welds for a cleaner appearance.

The lower profile, heavy-duty, dual angle approach allows for maximum clearance to load and tow even the lowest profile cars. The full-length, 50-ksi, 10-gauge embossed diamond steel decking is standard. Moreover, the high-speed 8,000-pound worm gear winch features a remote free spool for added safety. The optional Prizm LED light bar offers 100 percent brighter output for enhanced visibility.

"The Premium Shark 6-ton is a beautiful and rugged carrier with a long list of standard features," added Jones. "It's a tremendous expression of smart design and rugged performance."
