Clement AXP aluminum exterior-post dump trailers are available in lengths from 24- to 39-feet, in both frameless and quarter-frame models
Clement Industries, long an innovator and market leader in steel end dump trailers, has introduced the AXP” aluminum, exterior-post, end dump trailer.  
 
According to Clement president and CEO Greg Hicks, the AXP is the first of a full line of new generation aluminum trailers to be brought to market by Clement.  The aluminum segment of the dump trailer market is sizeable and continues to grow,” said Hicks.  We are bringing the same innovation and skilled manufacturing to our aluminum line that achieved us great success in steel trailers,” he continued.  According to Hicks the AXP will be available in lengths from 24- to 39-feet, in both frameless and quarter-frame models.  The all new Clement design was engineered for maximum legal payloads.  Part of the AXP™s hauling efficiency can be attributed to Clement™s elimination of deadweight in the trailer design.  
  







Maximum stability — Reduced turnovers


Clement pioneered wide-angle draft arms in 1976 to maximize stability, allowing longer trailer lengths while minimizing the risk of turnovers.  Clement wide-angle draft arms give the maximum in lateral support to the trailer body when elevated, plus Clement trailers also have a low center of gravity that maximizes stability.

Clement™s AXP has an exterior-post design built using Clement™s uni-beam” concept.  In its simplest form uni-beam means locking the side sheets into a beam formed by the super-strong, rear double-beam crossmember; the side sheets; and the headboard at the nose.  The body is then bolted to the sub-frame at the rear crossmember and at the middle and the front to an 8-inch beam giving the total structure tremendous strength-to-weight ratio” and eliminating the need for longitudinals while reducing tare weight.  The result is one of the most rugged frameless trailers on the market today.    

The AXP design, as is the case with all Clement end dumps, offers maximum stability.  Clement pioneered wide-angle draft arms in 1976, maximizing stability, and allowing longer trailer length while minimizing the risk of turnovers.  Clement wide-angle draft arms give the maximum in lateral support to the trailer body when elevated, plus Clement trailers all have a low center of gravity for further stability. 



The AXP was designed to help you maximize your payloads while minimizing your downtime,” added Greg Hicks.  For profit on the big hauls and steady day-in, day-out operation, our Clement AXP aluminum trailer is your best buy.”
