STEEL DROP DECK TRAILERS

Jet has been manufacturing steel Drop Deck, Step Deck and Double Drop Deck trailers for over 25 years. Engineered for strength and performance, our drop deck trailers are comprised of two steel high strength fabricated beams. Every beam is designed as a continuous, one-piece assembly, and precision automation welded, this includes the beavertail of the trailer.

    Beavertails are one piece construction and part of the main beam. They are not bolt on and cannot be added after the build. They can be configured in different lengths and angles, and finished with apitong wood flooring with steel cleats, tread plate, or open steel rungs. Two Fabricated steel Spring Assist Hinged Ramps included. Ramps can fold "flat" to the main deck. A third center ramps or "Heavy Duty" ramps options are also available.

    Beavertail Ramps can be removable and stored in the beavertail when traveling. Removable Ramps are typically aluminum construction and a roller is installed at the rear for easier removal.

    Axle configuration options include single, closed tandem, tandem spread, triple, triple spread, quadrupedal, or other options.
    Either regulated or non regulated lift axles with control box. Can be installed for any axle in several combinations (Front, Middle(s) and/or Rear)
    Slider boxes are optional on closed tandems. Also the front or the rear axle can install as a slider on a tandem 10' 1” spread.

    Aluminum wheels are available in Standard or Extra Polish. They reduce weight and provide a better visual appearance. Sizes include 8.25 x 24.5 or Wide Base Single Wheels

    Regulates correct and equal tire pressure across all tires. Controls two axles. Triple axles will require a second system.

    Installed in a weather resistant enclosure on the road side of the trailer by the front axle. Gauge reads pressure from the airbags. Filled with shock absorbing liquid to protect the gauge from vibration. Manual dump valve quickly releases the air from the air bags on the suspension.

    Options include slanted angle neck of 17º or 45º for easier use of the top deck. Lower deck heights and double drops are available if increased overall head clearance is required. Please contact our sales department. They will work with engineering to fulfill your needs.

    Aluminum Ramps that allow for access to drive equipment on to the top deck. Removable to allow full use of the main deck. Storage is built in underneath the main deck with access from the side of the trailer.

    A painted steel or aluminum bulkhead can be added to the front of the trailer. Either bolted on or mounted in welded stake pockets.

    Pullouts out of the front of the upper deck are an option to gain more usable upper deck length without sacrificing the lower deck. Common lengths are 2 and 3 feet.

    Main Beam, Crossmembers, and Knee Braces can be configured for concentrated loads such as steel coils.

    A winch can be installed in the upped deck or the neck area to assist in loading the trailer.

    Aluminum toolboxes can be mounted outside the main beam along the length of the main deck or inbetween wheels on a 10' 1" spread. Toolboxes are lockable for safekeeping.

    Aluminum Assembly that drops into the stake pockets toward the middle and the rear of the trailer for a level surface to the top deck for loading long items such as tubing, pipe, channel, logs, and more.

    The tail roll option is ideal for pulling skids onto the trailer.

    Ramp Holders allow for a storage space of optional front or rear ramps.

    Twist locks are available for container securing. Can be installed in various locations.

    Sliding winches can be mounted the either the road or the curb side of the trailer on the side rails. Straps can be added for additional means to secure a load.

    Rope hooks can be added for load securement.

    Recessed tie downs retract into the deck when not in use.

    D-Rings can be added to the main or upper deck at custom locations.

    Allows for storage of a spare wheel and tire

    Three tail lights are standard. Four are optional. Increases the trailer visibility from the rear. Multiple configurations of marker lights are available to increase the trailer visibility in the dark. 3 per side are typical. Please contact your sales rep about options.

    Galvanizing the trailer before the axles and landing legs are installed allows for extreme corrosion resistance in severe environments.

    Stocking colors are black, slate gray and red, or custom matching to a tractor or company color is possible.
