Lee Tractor was informed by resolution #134212 that item # 11 was awarded to Truck and Transportation because Lee Tractor Co. bid a 15 ton instead of a 20 ton which was the wrong size trailer. The specifications for item #11 on bid # 50-00127120 clearly states "Tandem 15,000 LB axles with 12 1/4 x 5 "electric" brakes which defines a 15 Ton capacity electric brake trailer which also the highest axle capacity for "electric" brake trailers. More importantly this is the same trailer with the same specs that was awarded to Lee Tractor for the 2019 contract #55-00016943. Agreed the twenty ton description is incorrect as it was before. You are now advertising to replace item #11on annual contract # 50-00127120 that already has two twenty trailers on it now with tandem 22,500 lb. axles with 12 1/4" x 7 1/2' "full air brakes" as item's # 3 and item # 10 with the only difference being the ramps and tail on item # 10 are approximately 12" longer. Now your adding another twenty ton trailer and eliminating the only 15 ton with electric brakes on the contract. In my opinion LTC should be awarded item # 11 as originally bid as we were last year, more importantly this is a trailer that JP purchases on a regular basis as this exact trailer will be delivered tomorrow on PO# 19-0020219. Also the new twenty ton spec replacement for 50-00128277 describes items not conducive with this type of trailer such as a break away system (battery operated system used to energize electric brakes, remember this is an air brake trailer, a 49,500 lb. jack that's not user friendly and has no drop leg, approx. only 16" of travel and must be hand cranked all the way throughout its travel. Please advise.
