Econoline trailers are design for rugged commercial use and come in a range of small 5 to 6 ton trailers all the way to the big 20+ ton market segment that require air brakes. Whatever the heavy commercial need is, Econoline offers a trailer that fills it.
And if you need a solid, dependable trailer, Econoline trailers are certainly worth your consideration.
Well-Constructed Trailers That Last 20-30 Years
Each Econoline trailer is welded by hand in a jig. Econoline craftsman take pride in their work – each weld is a complete weld, to insure weld strength and longevity.
The steel used in Econoline trailers is an above average strength steel. Detractors are quick to mention that adds weight to the trailer. They’re right: Generally speaking, an Econoline trailer weighs about 500 pounds more than a similarly-sized trailer of similar size. Here’s the payoff: Econolines last.
Econoline heavy construction model typically provide 20-30 years of service, and remain in use long after other trailers have quit.
Heavy Equipment Trailers Don’t Use Lightweight Axles
Rockwell axles come standard on Econoline’s heavy equipment trailers. Rockwell makes well-built axles that are also affordable.
Quality On Deck
The decking of every Econoline is not “just” hard wood; it’s Oak. Oak has excellent strength and handles weather well. When treated with a weather proofing agent, Oak is just about the best wood for performance and service life.
While few trailer owners actually weather proof their decks (although it is recommended), Oak is a wood that can withstand not being properly maintain longer than most hard wood decks.
