STECO’s ’The Hauf’ Trailer Features U-Formed Side Posts

Tue January 20, 2009 - National Edition

Designated “The Hauf,” Steco’s dump trailer features formed side posts that extend downward from one side of the trailer across the bottom of the bed and up the opposite side, providing a complete U-frame and curved corners.

Using purchased forms and equipment from the previous builder of this design, STECO’s The Hauf features the same continuous weld of the U-formed side posts, the same smooth bed with easy-to-clean corners, and the same top-hinged tailgate with remote air-controlled open and lock.

The Hauf also features up-to-date running gear with 16.5 by 7 in. (42 by 18 cm) System 2S/M air brakes with auto slack and ABS, 5 in. (13 cm)-round axles with .6 in. (1.6 cm) wall providing 25,000-lb. (11,340 kg) capacity on a 71.5 in. (182 cm) track, and a 60,000-lb. (27,215 kg) capacity single-point straddle-mount suspension and sealed lighting system.

This first model, the steel full-frame version, provides additional stability when the bed is lifted by keeping all trailer tires on the ground. The weight and rigidity of the updated frame also increases stability. Other models, including an aluminum design, will follow.

STECO’s full line of dump trailers are available in framed and frameless versions, as well as made from steel or aluminum. STECO builds both standard and customized trailers to meet the needs of its customers.
