Heavy-duty trailer manufacturer Kalyn Siebert has announced the launch of its newest trailer: the ALTRALITE, a lightweight steel end-dump trailer designed specifically for stability, strength and safety.
Well-suited for construction industry needs, road construction in particular, the ALTRALITE will provide owner/operators and construction businesses of all sizes with a heavy-duty end-dump trailer that is more versatile and less expensive than aluminum counterparts, allowing owners to cost-effectively maximize payloads and ROI.
“By extending our design and manufacturing expertise with heavy duty trailers into the end-dump market, Kalyn Siebert is proud to be able to support the construction industry when it needs it most,” Kalyn Siebert Managing Director Ryan Rockafellow explained. “Some in the industry prefer the versatility, ease of maintenance and lower cost of steel over aluminum. And with the forecasted growth for the industry, construction businesses will continue to need high-performance, cost-effective trailers that can stand up to the rigors of heavy duty jobs. This trailer is the right solution to meet the market’s needs.”
The product of four years of research and development, the ALTRALITE features several unique design aspects that drive this trailer’s performance. A higher dumping angle keeps all axles on the ground into the 5th stage of dumping, providing maximum stability and safety. A bathtub design keeps the load’s center of gravity closer to the trailer’s centerline, for added stability.
