Roll off Trailer Manufacturer
BENLEE Roll offs
Roll off trailers made by BENLEE have been the standard of the industry for over 40 years. Many use the term BENLEE as the generic name for a roll off trailer, due to the broad reach and broad ownerhip of BENLEE roll off trailers. BENLEE started selling roll off trailers in 1974 and in fact BENLEE #1 is still on the road in Texas. Dallas, Houston, Ft Worth and more are great markets for BENLEE trailers. In fact a BENLEE roll off trailer made in 1989 run by our sister company Raleigh Metal Recycling (www.raleighscrapmetalrecycling.com) came to the ISRI annual scrap show two years ago to show that after 26 years it was running strong.
There is a reason why we are #1 in Chicago IL, Cleveland Ohio, Ft. Wayne Indiana and more. Others try to copy us, but we keep making our units safer, more robust and at the same time lighter, so they can carry more. We even work hard to find great products to save our customer’s money and increase uptime such as automatic inflation systems that keep tires inflated to the right level, to save money and keep tires inflated until you get home.

Roll off Trailer
80,000 GVW is the Federal Maximum total weight for trailers in almost all states. Michigan and New York are the main exceptions and with special permits at times other states allow exemptions. Michigan of course allows 6, 7 and 8 axle trailers with GVW of close to 140,000 lbs. and NY allows an annual permit for 102,000 lbs., but as said most all others are 80,000 lbs.
At BENLEE there are two Roll off Trailer products to get this maximum 80,000 lbs. GVW
Conventional-This 80,000 lbs. GVW 40′ Tri axle (three axle) unit is the work horse of the BENLEE product line, with its 4 cyclinders. Think of it as a M1 tank. It has the ability and it can pick up 80,000+ lbs. It is totally illegal to do this and it should never be done. This unit with a steerable third axle can be over permitted in NY State to run 102,000 lbs. GVW. To get this with it three axles it weighs 22,000 lbs.
Bridge Master-This model also comes in a 40′ 80,000 lbs. GVW model which again is the Federal Maximum, yet this model does this with only TWO axles and two cylinders. it is becoming the new Standard in 40′ trailers and it new new work horse of the BENLEE product line. It will only pick up about 60,000 lbs. (WHICH IS ALSO TOTALLY ILLEGAL and should never be done.). Here is the best part though, it is like a armored HUMMER!!! The beauty is that it only weighs about 16,400 lbs, so it weighs 5,600 less and therefore carries alot material in the box!!
These trailers are good to run in Chicago, Texas, North Carolina and in reality, every state.
