Talbert updates Travelling Axle trailers
By Laura Hatton10 April 2015
USA-based heavy vehicle manufacturer Talbert Manufacturing has updated its Travelling Axle (TA) Series by increasing its hauling capacity by 5 US tons (4.5 tonnes).
Three of the new trailer models are the 4048TA, 4050TA and 4053T, which have a 40 ton (36 tonne) hauling capacity. The new 5548TA and 5553TA trailer models have a hauling capacity up to 55 tons (49 tonnes). The TA Series trailers offer a 36 inch (914 mm) loaded deck height, which helps provides clearance for bridges and tunnels when transporting tall equipment.
The added capacity on the new TA Series trailers helps haulers to expand their range of load opportunities and maximise transportation efficiency, while still complying with US state and Canadian province hauling requirements, the manufacturer said.
The TA Series trailers have wireless remote control, with upgrade options that include a six-function remote and a 9 tonne planetary winch.
