Our starting point was the basic body shell of America”s most popular 38-ft. steel end dump, the Clement FleetStar. Every part and component of the trailer was reviewed with the goal of increasing trailer strength and durability, while squeezing out every ounce of unnecessary weight. The result is Clement”s StarLite: a newly-designed, field-tested 38-ft. trailer, which will outperform other steel trailers and at the same time carry a ton more legal payload every trip.
Lighter than most aluminum trailers, StarLite gives you the strength of steel at an initial cost that”s thousands of dollars less than comparable aluminum trailers. Maintenance cost will also be reduced with the all-steel StarLite. If maximum profits are important to you, see the Clement StarLite, the strength of steel and the payloads of aluminum!
StarLite2 features that add to its record-setting performance
Wheels-on- the-ground dumping. There are no axle stops on the StarLite, so the wheels stay on the ground through the entire dump cycle.
StarLite”s brand new body shell has both curved sides and a curved floor. Every ounce of excess weight has been squeezed out.
StarLite”s hat-shaped single longitudinal has the same wide support as two separate box longitudinals, yet it”s lighter and much stronger. Gone are the center cross members and numerous weld joints.
Out of the way when dumping
FlipLite design swings lights and flaps out of the way automatically when the gate lock opens.
