Met-Con Companies, a Faribault, Minn.-based commercial and industrial large project construction company, announced the selection of Minimizer fenders for its fleet of trucks that hauls construction debris, fill and loose material. “Minimizer fenders are the perfect application for our construction tractors and trailers,” says Jason Stowe, Met-Con shop coordinator.
Stowe says it’s important road debris doesn’t hit the trailers or be allowed to enter the trailers, mixing with the contents – and it’s important that if something falls out of the trailer that the fenders can handle it and not be damaged. “We use them because the coverage is exceptional,” he says of the Minimizer fenders. “They control spray and keep our loads and trailers clean and undamaged. And if something falls out of our trailers, the fender takes the beating with no problems.”
Stowe says Met-Con, which needed more protection for new end dump trailers they purchased, ruled out metal fenders and selected Minimizer fenders not only because of the durability and perfect fit but also because of the easy installation process. “We can install the Minimizer fenders quickly and easily in our shop – our guys really like the system,” he says. “The new Minimizers come all the way down the wheel, wrapping around it. We like that and the protection it provides for our new aluminum trailers.”
