Load King 60-Ton Lowboy Trailer Receives 2018 Construction Equipment Magazine’s Top 100 New Products Award
LK 60 CEM Top 100 Products

Kansas City, Missouri, December 3, 2018 – Construction Equipment Magazine (CEM) has named Load King’s 60-Ton Lowboy Trailer as one of the Top 100 New Products of 2018.  

 

Since 1991, CEM’s Top 100 New Products list has been the longest-running, and most respected award program of its industry. Each year, CEM editors evaluate products that demonstrate innovation, productivity, efficiency, and safety.  

 

The Load King, LK503-605 SS SFF 60-Ton Lowboy features a 20” loaded deck height – the lowest in the industry, and a distinguished range of innovative features and options. Rated at 60-Tons in 12’, the 20” loaded deck height is paired with the ability to add both a 24” and 36” flip extension on the gooseneck. Combined with the ability to run two additional axles in either a close coupled-position or as a separate axle group, these features ensure operators have the right combination of axles and spacing to legally haul their load. New features include spring assist front ramps, dual intensity marker lights, a manual raise-and-lower valve that reduces the risk of suspension damage, and the lowest bucket well in the industry.   

 

“This trailer is a great addition to the Signature Series and demonstrates our continued commitment to delivering trailers designed around customer feedback and then responding with innovative solutions. Our customers are the real experts, and they will continue to drive us to develop premium products that set us apart from our competition,” said Tom Norcross, president of Load King.  

 

“Since joining Custom Truck in 2015, we’ve deliberately expanded Load King’s product offering outside of trailers to further position the company as the single-source equipment provider in the industry. By leveraging Custom Truck’s leadership in the vocational realm and its proximity to operators, and merging Load King’s manufacturing expertise and innovative design, we are able to efficiently penetrate and influence the equipment markets, with superior offerings,” added Ben Link, executive vice president of Production and Supply Chain for Load King.
