Hamilton Caster has introduced Hercules, a new line of pre-engineered super duty industrial trailers. The new Hercules line has a load capacity range of 20,000–40,000 lbs. per trailer and is pre-engineered for quick turnaround.
The Hercules line are fifth-wheel-steer types with a total of ten standard deck sizes starting at 4 feet wide by 8 feet long and ranging up to 5 feet wide by 24 feet long. The series is also grouped in 20K, 25K, 30K, 35K, and 40K load capacities designed for severe loading and power towing conditions.
Common applications for the Hercules are hauling tooling, dies, molds, structural steel bars, rolls, cylinders, and plate steel.
Each Hercules deck is constructed of ¼ inch plate steel with structural steel channel ranging from 5 inch on the 20K load trailer to 12 inch on the 40K version. The fifth wheel steering consists of ¾ inch steel plates sandwiching a 24-inch diameter anti-friction disc rotating on a 2-inch kingpin.
