TranscraftTranscraft is increasing the legal payload capacity of itsstandard-duty flatbed trailer models by approximately 8,000 pounds, or 12 percent, moving forward. Formerly designated as "normal" duty with gross vehicle weight ratings of 65,000 pounds, the company's standard-duty flatbed trailers will in the future carry 73,000 pounds. The added capacity is being achieved through focused engineering efforts and the use of higher-strength materials, and is effective on 2008-model-year flatbeds. Transcraft's flatbed models include the Eagle, Eagle II and TL-2000, available in standard-, heavy- and extreme-duty capacities.
