Utility’s new lightweight 4000AE Drop Deck flatbed trailer offers many features found in the company’s combo flatbed of the same name. And the final result weighs less than some all-aluminum trailers, but at a “more sensible combo-trailer price,” the company says.
Developed for heavy or awkward loads, the drop deck combines three- and four-inch aluminum crossmembers. It comes standard with a 39,000-pound coil haul package, with a five-foot span of aluminum cross members tapered from four inches to three inches on eight-inch center lines.
Other features include the ConMet aluminum hub system that sheds 541 lb. off the weight of the previous design.
