The 4000AE Drop Deck has an 80,000 lb evenly distributed payload capacity, weighs less than some all-aluminum trailers, and is available at a combo-trailer price. Using the same patent-pending crossmember system as the 4000AE combo flatbed, the 4000AE Drop Deck consists of a combination of 3" and 4" aluminum crossmembers.
