New Half Round Design with Lighter Weight - April 11,2019

Based on the feedback we’ve received from several customers, we tasked our Engineering group to redesign our Half Round Trailer to reduce its weight, which would make it more attractive to end users focused on payload.

We are pleased to announce that our Engineering team has been successful in its task and has reduced the weight of the trailer by an estimated 800 pounds.

This new Triple Axle Half Round is a new design.  The weight reduction goal was achieved by using new tools and new ideas generated from our team brainstorming sessions.  One of our new tools is an updated version of the latest Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software.  Using the FEA software, we have determined that this new design meets, and in many areas exceeds, our minimum acceptable safe limits for operation. 

Based on this, we expect this new design will perform as expected and should hold-up very well for our customers and their end users, while giving the end users more payload opportunities.

The designs are complete and we will be ready to take orders for this new trailer no later than the end of April, if not before.
