By KHL Staff30 June 2020
Talbert’s AC Series trailers are ideal for use in general construction, paving, agriculture and oil fields.
Indiana, USA-based Talbert Manufacturing has unveiled its Tag-A-Long Austin Carry-All Series (AC Series) Trailers aimed to minimise load times and maximise productivity for everyday hauling of small- to mid-size equipment. The line of 10 to 25 US ton tag-a-long trailers features leading loaded deck heights, durable construction and a low, 7 degree load angle to transport a variety of equipment – from asphalt rollers and machines for dirt work to cable and pipe for gas and electric utility applications. Talbert’s AC Series is ideal for use in industries such as general construction, paving, agriculture and oil fields.
“As contractors diversify their operations to meet changing demands, they require more flexibility from their equipment,” said Troy Geisler, Talbert Manufacturing vice president of sales and marketing. “Our AC Series trailers are specially designed to maximise versatility while providing the durability and safety Talbert Manufacturing is known for.”
For manoeuvrability in urban environments, the dual axle AC-10 offers a 10 ton, 20,000 pound, capacity with an overall transport length of 29 feet 6 inches. Deck length is 24 feet. The AC-10 also has 5 foot 5 inch self-cleaning, spring-assisted rear ramps. Loaded deck height is 32.25 inches, making it suitable for operation in areas with low-clearance obstacles, such as residential and commercial building sites and for urban utility operations. The AC-20 is ideal for contractors looking for larger capacity but with the same compact footprint. It offers a 20 ton, 40,000 pound capacity while maintaining the same deck dimension and loaded deck height.
The AC3-25 has a 29 foot deck and a 25 ton, 50,000 pound capacity with a 32.75 inch loaded deck height. Like all AC Series trailers, the AC3-25 has pierced I-beam cross member construction for a solid foundation, making it ideal for use in off-road or rugged terrain such as oil fields or construction and utility jobsites.
The AC-20ART and AC3-25ART improve on the base design of the AC Series by incorporating an air ramp and/or air tilt for safe, easy loading of low-clearance equipment. The air-powered ramps eliminate handling heavy ramps prior to loading. This increases both efficiency and safety for loading and offloading operations.
