East Introduces Genesis II for Frame-type Dump Trailers


Smooth bottom Genesis II floor technology is now available for East frame-type dump trailers. The announcement was made by Charlie Wells, director of dump trailer products for East Manufacturing.

Genesis II frame dump trailers offer the added advantage of a totally smooth bottom that improves the trailer's aerodynamic performance while simplifying maintenance. The smooth surface underneath the trailer eliminates exposed cross-members where ice, mud and snow can build-up. It also provides for more efficient air flow, promoting less drag and lower fuel consumption.

The Genesis II floor is a patented design that is stronger than the traditional cross-member supported design it replaces. The floor panel extrusions have internal stiffeners specifically designed to efficiently support trailer loads. They are also made of a new aluminum alloy that is stronger and more wear resistant. In addition, the "hollow" extruded floor panel design provides improved insulation opportunities to reduce the likelihood of loads freezing in the trailer.

Built into the Genesis II design is additional trailer protection from the adverse weather conditions. Electrical wiring and airlines are almost completely enclosed and virtually unexposed to the elements.

East always thinks about driver safety. The new Genesis II floor design allows a unitized wall - floor construction, which improves the torsional stiffness of the trailer. This reduces twisting during dumping, thus increasing dump stability and driver safety.

East revolutionized trailer performance with the introduction of Genesis, the first smooth-side design to offer the maximum combination of payload capacity, durability, and operating savings. East took the Genesis design one step farther by applying their patented aerodynamic, smooth-side technology to the floor of a frameless dump trailer. Now, the Genesis II floor technology is also available for frame-type dump trailers.
