Trail King Introduces Steel End Dump into Materials Hauling Series

Trail King’s steel end dump, the TKSHR32, is being re-introduced back into their product offerings. The new TKSHR32, designed to haul sand, gravel, demolition or rip rap features abrasion resistant steel, inverted angle designed top rail, and a high lift tailgate. Improved stability and a maximized footprint are achieved with a lower centre of gravity. The ability to haul increased payload is a result of the 24-inch flat floor structural design. The TKSHR32’s design is not only suited for a wide range of cargo applications, but for each scenario it allows ease of operation, and superior loading and unloading through the dump cycle.

Trail King Advantage Plus sliding-axle trailers can even load disabled equipment with ease

The Advantage Plus TK80SA and TK110SA hydraulic sliding-axle trailers from Trail King have carrying capacities of 80,000 pounds and 100,000 pounds respectively. The 20,000-pound winch, which comes with winch guard, can load disabled equipment with ease. A recessed roller at the front of the deck and a skid plate on the slope of the upper deck protect both the winch cable and the deck during loading and unloading, while the perimeter frame delivers maximum strength and stability. The design also includes an undercarriage to protect air lines when the trailer is in the transport position.

Steel side-dump trailer

Trail King’s steel side-dump trailer has an abrasion-resistant tub constructed of two rolled pieces of Hardox 450. The round bottom delivers fast, clean dumping of the load away from the trailer, with no “carry back.” The fewer weld seams associated with this design minimize the likelihood of cracking. Best of all, this tub design results in weight savings of several hundred pounds.

Trail King’s new Modular Hydraulic Transport System

Trail King’s new Modular Hydraulic Transport System (MHTS) has a 375,000-pound load capacity. The company reports that the system offers many features not found on models offered by other manufacturers. For example, the air system – which includes drain fittings on each tank and an air dryer – has air tanks that are easily accessible for maintenance, or removal and replacement.
Also, the steering arms of the MHTS are positioned over “dished” cross members so that they are more easily accessible for repositioning or replacement. Plus, to prevent build-up of dirt and grime that can interfere with steering arm performance or make repositioning more difficult, the steering arm mounting bosses are raised, not recessed.

Hydraulic detachables are easy to load

Trail King states that even low-profile, tough-to-load equipment will “load like a dream and fit like a glove” on their Advantage Series Hydraulic Detachable Gooseneck (HDG) trailers, which are available in 35-, 40-, and 55-ton capacities.

Live bottom trailer

The Advantage Series Live Bottom asphalt trailer delivers over 2,000 pounds more payload than previous models. They offer live-bottom horizontal discharge with a new lightweight, modular, strong design.
