Dorsey Trailer announced the introduction of the weight saving Aluminum Giant all-aluminum platform trailer series.
“Designed and engineered for significant weight savings, outstanding payload capacity and northern element corrosion resistance, the all-aluminum has a capacity of 80,000 lbs evenly distributed and an available 52,000 lbs. capacity in 4 feet,” according to the company.
The Dorsey Aluminum Giant Series boasts a one piece welded I-beam design. Aluminum Giant trailers come standard with 5" extruded channel cross members on 15" centers and a coil package while maintaining a starting tare weight under 8,900 lbs. The 1-1/2" hollow core box extruded aluminum floor combined with custom pipe spool design allows the aluminum giant to withstand rigorous fleet conditions and the most demanding owner operator usage, the company said. Standard features such as 6061 T-6 aluminum construction, fully galvanized suspension, aluminum landing gear and fully sealed wiring harness ensure years of corrosion free work even in the harshest northern conditions.
The Aluminum Giant Drop Deck shares the same fabrication materials, procedures and components, while featuring an all-aluminum drop neck design, which allows the end user to haul tall loads while maintaining higher payload capacity and superior corrosion resistance. All Aluminum Giant Series trailers are available with multiple beam packages and multiple axle configurations to meet all legal requirements and hauling needs, Dorsey concluded.
