Specialty trailer builder Talbert Manufacturing has designed two new trailer models, the 55-ton RA Beam Deck and the 35-ton HRG Double Drop trailer. Both will be on display at the , to be held in Louisville at the end of this month.
“Each of these trailers is the result of specific customized design features to meet our customers’ exacting specifications; as well as improved engineering initiatives that deliver greater longevity, load capacity, flexibility, and ease of use to our customers,” said Greg. D. Smith, vp of sales & marketing.
The Beam Deck trailer features a non-ground bearing gooseneck customized with a 114-in. swing clearance, allowing more weight on the steer axle. It also includes a 26-ft. beam deck, a four-axle heavy-duty suspension offering 30,000 lbs. capacity, and a four-hydraulic cylinder design for improved lifting capacity.
The trailer, with a 110,000-lb. capacity in a 13-ft. load base, features a modular design with the flexibility of alternating deck styles. There is also a 4-ft. deck insert that can be pinned in front of the first axle or at the rear of the deck to increase deck length to 30 ft.
Talbert’s 35-ton HRG Double Drop Trailer was designed to haul agricultural machinery. An aluminum pull-out system (2 ft. on each side) accommodates wider equipment at lower heights. A hydraulic removable gooseneck offers five different ride heights with an extra full-width deck.
At 48 ft., the trailer offers air-ride, tandem-axles with 29-ft. deck length rated at 35 tons distributed, 30 tons in each 10 ft. of deck length. An 18-in. loaded deck height has 6-in ground clearance.
There are four hydraulic cylinders for improved lifting capacity. The trailer is built with heavy-duty T1 steel and is equipped with strobe lights, battery backup, aluminum wheels and connections for a flip axle.
