Drop Deck solutions
Front deck length options
Heavy-duty pipe spools
The aluminum side rail with heavy-duty pipe spools and integral winch track is engineered to a 6,500 lb working load limit.
Drop Deck solutions for heavy and awkward loads
Available in all-steel or aluminum/steel combo designs, our Drop Deck trailers deliver options to deliver superior strength.
Hat-shaped top flange
The 80K steel hat-shaped top flange provides added lateral stability adding to a longer trailer life.
Heavy-duty aluminum outrigger attachments
Five tube-shaped outriggers located on each side of the flatbed are connected to the crossmembers, providing stability and helping distribute the load to the main beams.
Double tapered beam at rear for proper axle loading
This design optimizes load distribution between the axles and extends suspension life.
Integral winch track
The integral winch track is extruded into the aluminum side rails. It features a 6,500 lb working load limit rating.
High-quality paint process
The main beams are shot blasted to bare metal prior to painting and then coated with a two-part primer and two-part urethane top coat on the exterior surfaces. A rust preventative coating is applied to the interior surfaces of the beams for lower maintenance cost.
100% soldered main harness
The sealed main harness features 100% soldered internal connectors to prevent corrosive de-icing chemicals from traveling through connections into the wiring.
Aluminum front rail
Designed to lower tare weight, this high strength aluminum front rail provides added protection, improves durability and reduces maintenance expenses.
Front stainless steel corners
Stainless steel corners and top plates protect against impact damage and provide additional strength and durability, reducing cost of ownership.
Microencapsulated adhesive on all screws
Seals and locks threaded fasteners, creating better and stronger connections. Sealed threads are vibration-proof, protected against corrosion, and are resistant to fuel, oil and grease, reducing maintenance costs.
