East’s Lightweight Tipper Trailer is designed to maximize payload for daily refuse hauls in harsh conditions. The trailer removes 1,200 pounds from the fifth-wheel plate area, suspension subframe and body sides, and an aluminum bumper assembly replaces the standard steel assembly. Double-wall 2-inch-thick extruded aluminum panels are used on the easy-to-clean aerodynamic East Genesis smooth-sided design with a floor-to-wall attachment that secures the welded union of crossmembers, floor plates and sidewalls; the crossmembers and floor plates interlock into the bottom rub rail, forming a pocket to accept the sidewall panels for added strength.
The outboard Genesis design also provides more capacity than external post trailers and has panels that are robotically welded vertically for added strength to resist bowing, reduce corrosion from road salt and protect the outer walls from dents. The landing gear features extra-wide wing brackets, reversed-mount legs and diagonal support braces with C-channel crossmembers to help withstand frequent shocks. Tailgate options include side-swing, over-slung, center-split, airflow and leak-resistant, and a plug-together wire harness eliminates junction boxes. The trailer also features East “Elite” wheel-end parts and a stainless-steel banded fifth-wheel assembly designed for maximum load-bearing strength.
