Our heaviest mailbox at
over 165 LBS. without post. This mailbox with lower package compartment
handles your mail, packages, and newspapers, within the third lower
door. The name Senator comes from an ex-Senator who called and asked
if we could modify a mailbox for him. He wanted a compartment below
his mailbox to be used for either small packages and/or newspapers.
He liked the larger 12"x 12" mailbox, but wanted something
a little extra. We then took his idea and came out with the
Senator model, named after him. In the design process, we
thought of different ways to make this mailbox a little lighter
for easier manufacturing. However, we decided to use our 1/4"
steel for the entire shell of the mailbox and maintain our "Fort
Knox" standards. Now our heaviest mailbox is becoming
one of our most popular mailboxes as well. Now with the "Slam-lock"
included on the lower door, your packages are also
safe and secure. (A $38 dollar value)
features for the senator:
148 LBS. of Steel! (Mailbox only)
1/4" steel shell (as with all Fort Knox Mailboxes)
