Straight off of their highly successful industry introduction of a new coil haul (well design type) trailer, which made its debut at the 2016 MATS Show; Doonan® Specialized Trailer, LLC has designed and manufactured a new ‘Series 2’ V-channel trough flatbed coil haul trailer for special loading applications where coils cannot be transferred into and from a recessed trailer well, but still require safe securement on the flatbed.
Known for their longstanding credibility in the industry of designing and manufacturing specialized, heavy-duty application trailers, Doonan® has once again rose to the challenge of engineering a trailer that provides both stability and a safe coil hauling solution.
The 44’ x 96”, 110,000# GVWR, all-steel, tri-axle trailer with bulkhead, cradles 3’ to 7’ diameter steel coils shotgun style inside a V-shaped, rubber-lined steel trough on the center surface of the flatbed. This innovative channel cribbing cushions the coils and allows for efficient loading and removal from the trailer.
A convenient walkway on both sides of the channel allows for easy inspection of the load. Tie-downs can be applied by a driver from alongside the trailer to further support the securement of the coils, via a sliding winch track on both sides.
Components like the trailer’s two custom main beams, ABS System, and Hendrickson HT Suspension make for strong and reliable heavy-haul coil transport. A sliding tarp system is also added to eliminate the driver having to tarp the load.
“The new ‘Series 2’ V-channel coil haul trailer is a niche’ market trailer that we designed to address a need in the marketplace,” stated Kelly Zecha, National Dealer Manager/Application Specialist at Doonan®. “This model serves as yet another example of how Doonan® continues to lead the industry in developing innovative, specialized trailer solutions.”
