Statement of Understanding -
XT3347 is a wood deck, caster steer trailer that was designed for the Aerospace / Defense Industry. It is used primarily to transport raw and finished goods between the warehouse and the manufacturing area. It will on occasion travel outdoors in all climates over concrete and ashpalt driveways and parking lots..
The heavy duty solid pneumatic casters will provide shock absorbtion and will handle rough terrain. The solid pneumatics perform similar to air filled pneumatics, but without the risk of puncture. Solid pneumatics have a speed limit of 10 mph for applications of continuous use, or sporadic use over long distances
The heavy duty coupler system, along with the structural steel bracing to support the couplers will offer many years of service.
Due to the fact that the trailers would travel outdoors, and that the customer is located in the Southern United States, which is typically hot and humid, the customer desired hold down flats with through bolting hardware. As wood takes on moisture and dries back out it will swell and shrink. Overtime when using just nails, that boards can warp and pop loose. Hold down flats and through bolts prevent that from happening.
Do to the wide array of product that the customer will tow on these trailers, the customer wanted flexible way of restraining loads without being cumbersome or in the way. The customer also wanted the tie down points to be on top of the deck, instead of on the side rails.
The epoxy paint was also a choice knowing that these trailers would travel outdoors
