The American Eagle Aluminum Series Heavy-Duty drawer systems feature 500-pound capacity rated slides that will hold up to the rigors of daily work truck use and will support heavy tools and other parts and equipment. Each drawer is constructed of lightweight aluminum to offer weight savings and corrosion resistance. Each drawer is fitted with a non-slip liner that adds additional protection for valuable tools and aids in drawer organization.

The heavy-duty aluminum drawer systems also offer other standard features found on all American Eagle drawers. Features include individual locking drawers that use a single-handed T-Handle, powder coated drawer fronts for superior protection and an attractive finish, removable drawers to assist in installation as well as convenience on the job. The drawer also come with dividers, a telescoping top shelf, a 2 ½” riser built-in and concealed latching hardware for durability and security. All American Eagle drawer systems are engineered and custom-made to fit the user’s work truck specifications. A drawer system measurement guide is available online to assist with proper up-fitting and ordering.

“Our customers are trying to find any way they can to lighten up their work trucks and increase their payload,” says Jeff Newell, Sales Manager for American Eagle Accessories Group. “Reducing the weight of their truck accessories, such as the drawer systems, is one way we can help them achieve that goal. “

“The demands of the marketplace have driven this development for American Eagle,” Newell continues. “We have taken all the well known features of our heavy-duty steel line of drawers and put them into these aluminum systems, and now we have a virtually indestructible, yet lightweight system that will meet these demands.”

We’re Now Manufacturing Aluminum Bolt Bin Units!
Due to the recent expansion and the arrival of some new fabrication equipment this summer American Eagle is happy to announce that it is now manufacturing aluminum bolt bin units. The new aluminum bolt bin units will completely replace the existing steel bolt bin units. The aluminum design is modular in construction so they can be configured in virtually any combination to fill a truck’s compartment.

Benefits of the aluminum bolt bin design:

Less than half the weight of steel bolt bins which will allow for more usable truck load capacity
Lead-time reduced from 5 weeks to 2 weeks or sometimes even less!
Lower cost! (Due to enhanced manufacturing processes and since paint is no longer required)
Even though they are much lighter in weight, they are manufactured with heavy gauge aluminum for years of trouble-free use.

American Eagle® Filter Drawer

In response to mechanics needs American Eagle designs and manufactures custom-built oil filter drain systems.  This product provides a central location for disposing of oil filters which will help to keep the truck clean and more organized.  The oil filter drain unit includes a heavy duty drawer with a perforated floor for filter drainage.  A standard drain valve can be located in the front or back for eventual draining back at the shop area.   Like all American Eagle drawer systems each filter drain unit is built for rugged off-road.  As with all American Eagle drawer systems your customer can specify the width, height, depth, plus the drain location.  In addition, they can add drawers on top for tool storage if so desired.
