In the USA Talbert Manufacturing has launched a new 65 US ton (59 tonne) modular trailer it claims is ideal for use in general construction, heavy-haul trucking and oilfields.
The 2+3+2 HRG East Coast Trailer includes a flip extension to accommodate a tandem-axle jeep dolly.
The hydraulic gooseneck trailer is able to take a tag- or pin-on axle to the jeep to allow a 3+3+2 axle configuration. Featuring 60 inch (1.5 m) 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.
Offering a 28 foot (8.6 m) deck length, the trailer is rated for 65 US tons (59 tonnes) in any 14 feet (4.3 m) of deck length. It can also accommodate an additional 10 foot (3 m) section of beam or drop-side deck.
