ABS Trailers’ LRC product line is coming in lighter than the RC model of live bottom semi-trailers, and the company says the change has come without sacrificing robustness or durability.
The design is based on transversal I-beams that connect the conveyor system to the trailer frame, increasing the related strength by 30% over the standard model.
The subframe and other components are galvanized to protect against corrosion, while a direct conveyor connection increases unloading speeds by 16% when compared to the previous hydraulic block connection.
Pressure dials and connectors have been reconfigured, and a front access door has been added. A redesigned scraper mechanism, meanwhile, restricts residue that can otherwise accumulate on the belt. Door cylinders have also been relocated in the name of streamlining operation.
