When you need to haul up to 28,000 pounds of heavy equipment, the YHX is the trailer for you. The YHX 40k flatbed is outfitted with our hydraulic dovetail as a standard feature, which provides a full-width loading surface that’s 12’ long with a 12-degree loading angle. Getting your tractors and other heavy equipment loaded up and on the deck is as easy as pressing a button.
The rugged hydraulic dovetail can handle up to 10,000 pounds while loading and can support 8,000 distributed pounds during transport. This gives you an effective bed extension for extra hauling capacity. For better traction when loading, the dovetail has blackwood on the outsides of the deck and also has metal traction cleats on the knife edge in the rear.
The YHX trailer’s frame is built out of a massive 14” x 22 lb i-beam, and comes in deck lengths of 34’ to 40’. The YHX 40k hydraulic dovetail flatbed has a lengthy torque tube underneath the deck for added stiffness as well as a channel bridge on the underside of the frame. A hefty 8” channel outer frame paired with 4” channel crossmembers comes standard on every YHX.
Twin 16K electric/hydraulic brake axles come as standard running gear on the YHX flatbed for a GVWR of 40,000 pounds, but three 12k electric/hydraulic brake axles are also an option on this trailer. Multiple suspension types are also available, from adjustable suspension, which is standard, to Ridewell airbag suspension, which also allows for lifting the front axle when not loaded.
Like all MAXX-D Trailers, the YHX 40k hydraulic dovetail flatbed is finished with our industry-leading powder coating process. Six different steps all work together to give your trailer a premium powder-coated steel surface with unmatched durability.
