East flatbed trailer models maximize payload, and deliver strength and durability to meet the needs of all types of flatbed trailer applications. By incorporating lighter weight and longer lasting components into each and every trailer, East has earned the reputation of having higher resale value.
The strength of our flatbed trailers is our dual-T main beam and exclusive cross-member design, increasing durability and balancing load stresses more evenly for longer life and less maintenance. Its two T-shape extrusion sections of 6061-T6 aluminum alloy are welded, not bolted. The weld is in the middle of the beam where stress is minimal. Our seamless-tubed cross members are more twist resistant in a turn than conventional C-shaped and I-beam cross members.
Beast (BST): Providing more stability and less flex during cornering and maneuvering, the Beast delivers up to 1,500 pounds more payload than a comparable composite flatbed trailer. The Beast is rated to handle loads up to 50,000 pounds concentrated in 4 feet on a 48-foot widespread tandem-axle trailer, up to 60,000 lbs. concentrated in 10 feet and up to 80,000 pounds distributed.
Beast II (BST II): Designed with all the features and benefits of the Beast, the Beast II meets the needs of applications requiring higher concentrated load ratings without additional weight. It handles loads up to 65,000 pounds concentrated in 4 feet on a 48-foot wide-spread tandem-axle trailer and up to 100,000 lbs. distributed. Ideal for two to three-axle configurations, it is available in lengths up to 53 feet and boasts a 13-inch neck with a 2-inch deeper main beam than the BST.
MMX: Offering one of the highest concentrated load ratings in an aluminum flatbed, the MMX is rated to handle loads up to 80,000 pounds concentrated in 4 feet on a 48-foot wide-spread trailer, and up to 145,000 lbs. with a multi-axle configuration. Ideal for multi-axle applications, it is available in lengths up to 53 feet and boasts a 12½-inch deep neck with a super-duty main beam.
Beast II Narrow Neck: Newly-designed, 8-inch narrow neck on the all-aluminum flatbed offers the same durability, strength and payload of the BST II plus the capability to be equipped with an enclosure, providing more load versatility and protection. Adaptable to curtain-side and rolling tarp systems, the van configuration has up to a 106-inch clear inside height – just 4 inches short of a van. It is rated to handle loads up to 50,000 pounds concentrated in 4 feet on a 48-foot wide-spread tandem-axle trailer, up to 60,000 pounds concentrated in 10 feet and up to 80,000 pounds distributed.
Stronger Floor Decking: Fully-enclosed floor design with full length continuous welds joining floor decking to main-frame beams, provides maximum strength and wind resistance with multi-hollow floor extrusions. Skid resistant, serrated-edge top surface.
Fully-Enclosed Wiring: Hollow-core side-rail design, Securelight™, provides a conduit for wiring to be fully enclosed. Standard with LED PC-rated surface-mounted lights.
Rear Panel Fully Sealed: Fully-sealed rear panel is water resistant. Recessed grooves protect conspicuity tape and rubber dock blocks and a heavy-wall bumper provides added protection.
Exclusive Securetight Cargo Controls: Side-rail extrusions are designed for adjustable chain tie-downs and a unique winch strap capture system. Interchangeable on either side of the trailer, torque can be applied on both sides to help stabilize loads.
East Elite Wheel-end Warranty: Standard wheel-end parts are warranted for 5 years or 350,000 miles. The assembly is filled with synthetic oil, which resists high-temperature breakdown.
– Easy-Access Stairway: Integrated stairway provides a simpler, easier and safer entrance to and exit from the flatbed deck. A locking door enclosure allows for additional lights and license plate mounting while providing rear a more custom appearance.
– Container Lock Twists-Lock
– Aluminum Tool and Side-Kit Boxes: The only truly “heavy duty” aluminum toolboxes on the market built with 3/16-inch aluminum and fully (not stitch) welded for extra strength and durability.
– Bulkheads: Fixed and Removable
– Built-in Traveling Unloading Crane
– Lightweight Forklift Kit: No waiting on customer’s forklift to unload. Unloads and reloads in minutes. Eliminates aftermarket installation that void trailer warranties.
