At the Great American Trucking Show, Benson introduced its redesigned all-aluminum drop deck trailer, which features a newly designed front deck frame, transition and main-frame inner crossmembers that the company says offer superior strength and weight savings from the previous design.

Other features, according to Benson, include:

  • Load capacity rating of 52,000 pounds in a four-foot span;
  • 10-foot front deck with models ranging from 48 to 53 feet in length;
  • Available with 22.5 and 19.5 rubber tires;
  • Five-year materials and workmanship warranty; and
  • Hendrickson HLS package with a five-year axle end warranty and extended service brakes.
  • Benson also has expanded its product line to include the Ironman Frameless Dump trailer. This application will allow the company to service the scrap metal and demolition markets with a “high-cube” frameless dump.

    Features of the Ironman Frameless, according to the company, include:

  • High-volume construction offering increased payload;
  • Lightweight design with AR450 material for ultimate strength;
  • Spring plates in floor to lessen impact forces of materials loaded;
  • Fully welded construction for strength and longevity; and
  • Squared front to offering a higher cube capacity.
