Etnyre introduces new wind trailer
By Lindsey Anderson12 July 2010
The Etnyre Trailer Co. has introduced a new trailer designed to haul longer and larger wind turbine blades.
The Blackhawk trailer collapses when empty to 53 ft for no-permit transport and can be extended in 6 ft increments up to 162 ft, at which point a 15-ft pull out light panel with underride can be extended for a total length of 177 ft, allowing the trailer to move blades up to 207-ft-long.
The trailer comes equipped with two, 22,500-pound disc brake axles with Michelin 245/75R 17.5 inch tubeless radial tires on air ride suspension with a 10-ft, 1-inch axle spacing.
Rear steering is done with the 13hp Honda power pack and wireless remote control with tethered 50-ft long back-up remote.
Extending or collapsing the trailer can be done with the patent-pending hydraulic support arm (no need for expensive wreckers or cranes).
