East unveils its lowest drop deck trailer yet

East Manufacturing will be showcasing a new 36-in. drop deck trailer designed for increased payload versatility and improved stability at the upcoming Mid-America Trucking Show.

The all-aluminum trailer has a lower center of gravity and is available in multiple axle configurations in lengths up to 53 ft.

“Specialty loads, particularly equipment loads, keep getting taller and taller,” noted Bill McKenzie, director of dealer development and flatbed products at East. “With the new low-height East drop deck there is less need for partial dismantling of the load to get it below the 13-ft., 6-in. maximum legal height. So haulers have a lot more flexibility in terms of the loads they can haul both efficiently and profitably.”

Mid-America takes place March 22-24 in Louisville, KY.
