Talbert Manufacturing has created the 2+3+2 65-ton HRG East Coast trailer, a modular-designed trailer with a flip extension to accommodate a tandem-axle jeep dolly.
Talbert, a specialty-built trailer and transport system provider, said the trailer is designed for flexibility and versatility. The HRG hydraulic gooseneck trailer is ideal for a variety of markets including general construction, heavy-haul trucking and oilfields, the company said.
Offering a 28-ft. deck length, the trailer includes the ability to have a tag- or pin-on axle that can be added to the jeep to allow a 3+3+2 axle configuration. This is especially crucial for those without a 4-axle tractor, allowing operators the ability to add an optional pin-on axle for the jeep to maintain axles that are legal to scale the payload.
Featuring 60-in. axle spacing, as well as an airlift on axle 3 and a chain lift on axles 1, 2, 4, and 5, the trailer is capable of running with 3, 4, or 5 axles in a row without the booster. Additionally, the trailer is equipped with an optional Cleral onboard scale system.
The trailer is rated for 65 tons in any 14-ft. of deck length and is adaptable to accommodate an additional 10-ft. section of deck, varying in type from beam to drop side. Loaded deck height is 22 in. and the trailer features an 8-ft., 6-in. deck width.
The deck is manufactured with heavy-duty T-1, 100,000-PSI minimum yield steel construction, upper-flange reinforcement, and auxiliary cross members for extra support.
Standard features include air-ride suspension and connections for a PTO system, while an onboard power pack to operate its trailer hydraulic system, removable fenders over the tires and polished aluminum wheels are optional.
