Tipping platform Trailer — Genesis®
With Genesis®, the East smooth-sided design offers the maximum combination of payload capacity, durability and operating savings. The aerodynamic design makes the Genesis tipping platform trailer easier to operate and reduces fuel consumption. No hydraulics required so there is no specially-equipped tractor required or additional weight, allowing greater payloads and a more versatile tractor.
Competitors use either I-beam supports on a 14-inch center, or U-channel supports spaced 11 inches apart (Fig. 1). The flooring in an East tipping platform is supported by V-shaped cross members 9 inches apart (Fig. 2). This means an East tipping platform will have more even support — front-to-rear — and less susceptibility to floor wave. All with less cross members — and less weight than you would find on competitive tipping platform trailers.
East V-shape cross members provide a major performance advantage: More structural support. East refuse trailers have less unsupported space in the trailer floors. That translates into more support in top-loading operations, and more support if the customers run a fork lift into the trailer.
Greaseable tailgate hardware is designed for longer life, reducing maintenance.
Landing gear features extra-wide wings, diagonal support braces and C-channel cross members to withstand frequent shocks.
