Elephant Blocks are designed for use by the package handling
industry in conjunction with the Oberg 5th Wheel Jack. The
jack is used to lift the front end of a package hauling trailer
to provide what is termed “gravity”. Gravity will assist in
allowing the packages to roll on package rollers onto the
terminal conveyer belt.
The design of the jack prevents the user from ever being under
the trailer while lifting. After the trailer is lifted a maximum
of 26 inches, the standard 12” square powder coated blocks are places under
the trailers’ landing gear, and the trailer is lowered upon
them. This stabilizes the trailer while providing the necessary
angle required for gravity assisted unloading.
We at Gary Oberg Mfg. Co. would like to make the Oberg Elephant
blocks the industry standard. The blocks are 12 inches square
and are proof tested to 50,000 lbs. The Oberg Elephant blocks
are powder coated for long life. Each block is a light
weight 30 lbs.
Elephant Blocks come standard in a 12 " square, however can be modified to meet your specific needs.
