Rogers Brothers Corp. was recently commissioned to design a trailer that would solve the special problems encountered in hauling steel coils between processing areas of a steel mill. The trailer required interchangeable beds to accommodate two different sizes of hot coils. The trailer would need to be designed with long-term, rugged durability that could withstand use during three daily shifts, seven days a week.

Rogers worked with the maintenance, purchasing and transportation departments at a steel mill to design and build a 3-axle, 65-ton capacity trailer with a 25 foot-6 inch trough that accepts different sizes of coil-carrying trays. Two trays were designed to transport 76 inch diameter coils, and another two were built to transport 48 inch diameter coils. The trays were lined with a special heat-resistant material that prevents damage during transport.
