All-steel, tandem-axle, semi-bottom-dump trailer is for severe-duty applications is 30 percent lighter, has 300 percent greater structural integrity, and accommodates 12.5 percent greater load capacity than competitive offerings, American Carrier says.

It has a 24-cubic-yard, 28-ton load capacity. Towing properties have also been enhanced through the addition of a fully oscillating kingpin. Unlike the sleeve-type designs used in some trailer kingpins, the bottom dump’s kingpin functions as a solid, finished bearing, helping to absorb and disperse the lateral stresses exerted on the trailer through pull and brake torque.

Unit weights 9,680 pounds.
