Hitting the scale at 5,150 lbs, our 40' lightweight chassis is built for those who want to haul more without compromising reliability.  

Chassis is designed and built according to Association of American Railroads (AAR), Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS), International Standards Organization (ISO), American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Department of Transportation (DOT), American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), and Truck Trailer Manufacturers Association (TTMA). 

Low profile radial tires, aluminum wheels, and lighter hub are some of the components that help with weight reduction.
