West Fargo, ND Trail King Industries has introduced the new Advantage Series Live Bottom asphalt trailer that delivers over 2,000 pounds more payload than previous trailers. This next generationâ€ of Trail King asphalt trailers offers all the benefits of live-bottom horizontal discharge with a new lightweight, modular, strong design.
The best just got better,â€ says Dean Badinger, sales manager for Trail King™s live bottom trailers. With this trailer, we have greater capacity, better weight distribution and a lower center of gravity. And, because it is lightweight without compromising strength or capacity, this newest trailer in our live bottom line can haul up to a full ton more payload than the competition.â€
The Advantage Series Live Bottom features 60-degree sloped walls to reduce load segregation during transport, and eliminate bridging problems. A heat- and oil-resistant two-ply rubber continuous belt moves the entire load to the rear for discharge. The 36-inch belt is attached to patented steel slats, and moves by means of self-lubricating double-pitch roller chain on steel tracks. This drive system is comprised of a direct hydrostatic drive, a double-reduction planetary gearbox and a solid, one-piece drive shaft that eliminates the problems normally associated with chain drivesâ€¦ quickly making it the best drive system in the industry.
Optional features include manual and electric tarp systems. Various tailgate options include an air lift door, a split rear door and a concrete tailgate. Multiple-axle configurations are available, with air-ride and air-lift suspension options. An optional 102-inch wide body provides extra capacity.
Safety, reliability, capacity, low maintenance, and proven performanceâ€¦ Trail King™s Advantage Seriesâ€ Live Bottom Asphalt Trailer is designed with the asphalt industry in mind.
In addition to the Advantage Series Live Bottom, Trail King manufactures a complete line-up of trailers, including a wide variety of open deck trailers such as tags, tilts, detachables, hydraulic tails and sliding axles; end dump, bottom dump, and side dump trailers; live bottom trailers; pneumatic dry bulk trailers; and specialized multi-axle trailers for the specialized hauling industry.
