The Scorpion II TL-3 Trailer Mounted Attenuator from TrafFix Devices is the world's first MASH Tested, Passed, and Eligible Trailer Attenuator.
The Scorpion II Trailer Attenuator little to no modification of the host vehicle and only a factory-standard pintle hook and a ½” x 32x steel frame plate.
In the event of an impact, the Scorpion II TA is designed to crush in progressive, modular stages. This minimizes broken parts on the attenuator, as well as reduces the crash impact on the host vehicle and its occupants.
The Scorpion II’s Telescoping Anti-Rotational System (TARS™) works to minimize the rotation of the trailer during offset or angled crashes while reducing the chance of separation from the host vehicle.
The trailer-mounted Scorpion II demonstrates supreme stability over uneven surfaces thanks to its rear axle placement, keeping it from bottoming out over low surface transitions or driveways.
The Scorpion II TA is the shortest trailer-mounted attenuator on the market, measuring at only 17’ 10”. It comes standard with an integrated electric brake system, and the brakes are automatically applied should a hitch failure or attenuator separation occur.
Further safety features inclue an omnivolt LED brake, running lights, signal lights, and directional lights.
The Scorpion II TA can be used on support vehicles with a minimum curb/actual weight of 12,000 lbs with no upper weight limit (infinite weight).Request
