WINAMAC, IN – Antares Equipment has unveiled its new 48’ flatbed trailer with a fixed wide-spread air suspension.
The company said the new trailer is lightweight and comes with corrosion protection.
“We’re confident that the specialty vocations like steel- and chicken-hauling will appreciate the detailed and integrated quality designed into this new trailer model,” said Derrick Dilts, partner-operations, Antares. “Our goal is to supply to North American customers a lightweight trailer with the lowest possible total cost of ownership and outfitted with smart and long life design elements and dependable components.”
Bobby Horton, PE, Antares engineering partner also commented saying: “Dropping an axle has never been easier with this new unit. Replacing a hanger is easily accomplished. The dry-bulk and liquids markets have been doing this, and it’s a design transfer from that market. It fits our mantra of easily serviceable/easily replaceable, so it’s right to offer it to our customers.”
Another benefit of the new trailer is that it doesn’t need welding or painting if a replacement part is needed.
“Part(s) replacement with this new trailer is simply a no-brainer. We can quickly ship a fully galvanized, ready-to-install genuine OE-quality part, without the need for torching, welding or painting,” Horton added, emphasizing the company’s focus on supplying fleets with economically-priced equipment that boasts long life and high uptime rates.
All I-beams are punched in order that harness and air lines run through the I-beams (not over nor under) for maximum protection – helping prevent damage from pinching or piercing on the top side where it meets the floor.”
