Dynaweld Trailers, a lowboy manufacturer andthe heavy-haul division of Dorsey Trailer, has introduced the all-new Dominator 55-ton hydraulic detachable neck lowboy.
The design of the Dominator neck has an improved fluid look. A rounded design and implementation of higher yield steel evenly distributes the load to eliminate hot spots in high-capacity load situations. An all new “Swingin” four-position ride height load block eliminates deck interference. New standard deck height is 22” with one position up plus two down.
Less neck and deck deflection provide truer deck heights, while a new 7” square T-1 fabricated torsion tube adds strength to a high stress area. New 9” bore lift cylinders provide more lifting power and reduced hydraulic operating pressure. The addition of a standard hydraulic pressure gauge next to the neck controls allows the operator to monitor system pressure. Custom formed and weeded decals provide a low-profile “designed to fit” look.
The Dominator attacks the problem of deflection by reducing the beam taper. Additional beam height greatly reduces beam deflection in both static and dynamic load scenarios. The Dominator features a concentrated load rating of 55-tons in 12’. This is achieved by the use of two 10” crossmembers on 20” centers along with the use of higher yield materials in beam fabrication.
The front toolbox is now standard with a lockable lid. This feature provides a secure location for chains, binders, and tools.
The design of the Dominator bogie transition has an improved fluid shape. Its rounded design and use of higher yield steel evenly distributes the load to eliminate hot spots in high capacity load situations. In addition, a triple-reinforced bogie transition adds strength to the bogie to reduce deflection. The Dominator bogie has been engineered to include “wrap around beam ‘V’ cross members.” This prevents bogie beam separation under extreme loading scenarios. Crossmembers are now cut with lightening holes and all plumbing and wiring has been engineered to achieve the “designed to fit” appearance.
