One of the first combo trailers to hit the market – the Transcraft Eagle – is back and better than ever according to Wabash National.
The OEM will introduce the re-engineered Transcraft Eagle with new features for model year 2021 at the American Trucking Associations’ (ATA) Technology and Maintenance Council (TMC) annual meeting 24-27 February in Atlanta.
“We’re excited to show customers that the flatbed trailer they’ve depended on for generations is back with new, edgy product badging and premium features that now come standard,” said Wabash National Platform Sales Director, Al Cox.
In addition to a lighter weight design, Wabash National’s Transcraft Eagle is reported to be the only combo trailer on the market that offers premium features as standard, including: more load securement versatility; the highest standard beam rating to handle the toughest loads; additional side turn/marker lamps for better highway visibility; and limited lifetime beam and five-year wheel-end warranties.
“Our new Eagle is another example of how we continue to help customers move everything from first to final mile,” said Cox. “Our product is known for being stronger and lower weight, while having more payload capacity and best-in-class corrosion resistance. We believe customers who expect more from their equipment will find the re-engineered Transcraft Eagle as a reliable trailer that can haul more and stay on the road longer.”
November last year, Wabash National's Chairman retired and a successor was named.
