SDX, Step Deck Shorty

Step Deck SDX 216 Hydraulic Dove Tail in Action

In the ever-evolving construction and agriculture industries, efficiency and adaptability are important. We are proud to unveil the SDX, Step Deck Shorty. Tailored to meet the diverse needs of industries where hauling is essential, this new addition to the Diamond C family promises to redefine versatility and performance.

In 2021, Diamond C Trailers introduced the SDX, a step deck trailer that quickly became a staple in the hotshot industry. Its unique design and versatility made it a favorite among professionals looking to optimize their hauling capabilities. Diamond C is taking things a step further by introducing the Step Deck Shorty, a shorter version of the SDX.

The SDX Shorty trailer comes in bottom deck lengths ranging from 35′ to 45′, including a 10’ deck, making it the perfect solution for all your hauling needs. Whether you need to transport heavy machinery, agricultural/construction materials, etc., the SDX Shorty provides a safe and efficient platform that you can rely on.

The SDX Shorty stands out for its unique combination of the step deck design with the versatility required by professionals in the construction and agriculture industries. Unlike traditional gooseneck trailers, the SDX Shorty provides an additional 80 square feet of working space, maximizing its total usable area. This extra room is further enhanced by the inclusion of slots and ramps, offering greater flexibility for loading and unloading equipment, tools, or materials.

Step Deck Lockable Neck Storage Box

The SDX Shorty’s storage box has undergone a significant upgrade. Now featuring a front-locking toolbox design, this toolbox offers secure storage for essential equipment, including a battery and charger for those opting for the winch package. Even without the winch package, the toolbox provides a winch plate and ample space for storing tools and supplies, keeping them organized and easily accessible.
