COME SEE WHATS NEW IN 2015 @ MATS!
MAC Liquid Tank Trailers of Kent, Ohio, is a new company under the umbrella of MAC Trailer of Alliance, Ohio. It introduced a brand new petroleum trailer at the 2013 Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky.
MAC LTT is building water tank trailers, crude oil trailers, vacuum trailers, and stainless steel chemical trailers at its 125,000-sq-ft plant in Kent, Ohio.
It recently added the Billings, Montana, plant formerly owned by Beall Corp of Portland, Oregon.
Design of the new petroleum tanker focused on lowering the center of gravity for safety concerns, says Jim Maiorana, president of MAC LTT. It starts with a low tractor fifth wheel height of 46 inches and a wide wheel-track of 83.5″ on super single tires with disc brakes, and a rotating revolver upper coupler is inserted into the trailer frame.
The DOT-406 barrel is elliptical and has a double-taper design with a drop of 11 inches for better flow. It has 1/4″ bulkheads, (3) interior compartments are baffled with double-bulkheads.
The 9,700-GAL aluminum trailer has a tare weight of 9,200 LB. It is standard bottom-load, but has (3) 16″ manholes at top, with the ladder on the front bulkhead.
The tank is mounted on Hendrickson AANT-230 axles with disc brakes. The aluminum landing stiff legs are made in the MAC LTT plant. Aluminum fenders are by Pro-Tec.
