Pitbull Trailers by LCB Manufacturing partners with Watson & Chalin
Pitbull Trailers by LCB Manufacturing announces Watson & Chalin as their primary supplier of suspensions and axle assemblies.
Andy Miller, Operations Manager of LCB and Cox Trucking Inc states, “after extensively testing the W&C suspensions and axle assemblies on our private fleet, we have decided to make W&C our “standard” spec on our roll off trailer line.” “Both the air ride and the mechanical suspensions have proved rugged enough to meet the demands of operating in a scrap hauling environment. The W&C air ride suspension gives us more stable dumping, a smoother ride which translates to less shock load on our drive trains and a comfortable ride for our drivers”.
Miller continues, “Air disc brakes have been in the market for a while now, however we were unable to find any data in how they performed in the scrap industry so we tested on our private fleet first. We needed to make sure they would hold up when operating in the dirt and grit found in most scrap yards… our results were positive.
Miller finished by saying “ADB (Air disc brakes) are showing to give us double the brake life on our trailers, less maintenance points to PM, less labor time to perform brake jobs and many other benefits.”
Rob Cox, CEO of LCB and Cox Trucking Inc, adds “We constantly battle brake adjustment issues on the standard brake assemblies we run. We do not have these issues with Air Disc Brakes.” “As someone who has been behind the wheel hauling fully loaded containers, there is just no comparison between the stopping power of the ADB system compared to conventional drum brake system.”
