Superior built refrigerated trailers yep right down to the axles. To the untrained eye an axle is an axle but to those that know the importance it’s a huge part of the total package. For example in my industry everyone else uses 3500 lbs axles while we use 5200 lbs drop axles. What that simply means is that Cooler Trailers can literally haul a ton and a half (or 3000 lbs.) more product than other trailers.
We use drop axles to give us easy ground entry into trailer in fact 19″ up into our cooler trailers just like a step of stairs at home. We also put electric brakes on both axles to ensure that when you need to stop with all that product you can stop, it’s that simple. Axles play an important role in what and how much you can ultimately haul in your freezer or refrigerated trailer and should also play a role in your decision as to how you plan to use yours.
For example, Our 7×12 trailers can haul up to 8000 lbs with the appropriate vehicle. Although any 1/2 ton vehicle can pull our trailers to maximize the load capacity we recommend a 3/4 ton vehicle or more. Most 1/2 ton vehicles can still haul around 2500 lbs plus the trailer weight.
