Having a D'Angelo ballrace assembly reduces wear on the turntable top and skid plate, fifth wheel jaws, kingpin and also load bearing tyres. The reduced drag between trailer and turntable also improves truck handling and increases load stability.


In a ballrace assembly the turntable is effectively locked in position relative to the trailers skid plate and the oil filled ball-bearing ‘race’ takes the strain from trailer movement. The cost of adding a ballrace is quickly recovered by reduced running costs and off-road maintenance time.

D’Angelo supply a range of high specification steel ballrace rings for use in these assemblies: a low and high profile single row ballrace and, for extra height or increased protection against wear, a double row ballrace assembly. Each fifth wheel has a selection of options available to it, check each individually or call D’Angelo to discuss the options in detail.
