The Thunderstone runs a multi-function remote with 5 different trailer accessories with a max range of 100 ft. It's easily folded away and stored. The competition can only operate 3 functions and has limited range. They are aslo large and oversized and some of the remotes have to be charged daily.
Thunderstone's control box is low profile, easy to use and epoxy potted for a completely watertight keypad. Open and close buttons are backlit for night time use! The competition has the potential to be infiltrated with water due to exposure from the elements and road debris from the tractor's drive tires. Open and close buttons are not backlit, and some of the competitors use twist compression seals to seal the box.
The Thunderstone Motor is proven to have 4 times the life of the competitor's. It utilitzes gear worm drive for precision stopping, harnesses the optimal amount of torque; eliminating excessive wear, is USA made, and has an industry leading 5-year warranty.
At the end of the day, no electric tarp system is perfect but they sure do make life easier. Thunderstone really takes pride in having the longest lasting system on the market!
