XL Specialized unveils latest lowboy trailer

The XL Guardian 110 HDG trailer is 53 feet long and has a capacity rating of 110,000 pounds in 12 feet concentrated.

XL Specialized Trailers, a manufacturer of heavy haul and specialized trailers has introduced the new XL Guardian 110 HDG trailer, a standardized construction trailer.

“While we specialize in the customization of our trailers, the Guardian is an exciting new trailer for us, as it is a stock trailer that is ready to hit the road,” says Tom Hiatt, director of sales, XL. “It’s a competitive market, but our specifications, warranty and value on the Guardian are at the top. It will be a great fit in any lineup.”

The Guardian trailer is 53 feet long and has a capacity rating of 110,000 pounds in 12 feet concentrated. The low-profile gooseneck design provides weight savings and versatility, allowing scrapers to load over the top. It features a relief cutout, giving truck fenders plenty of clearance and two removable kingpin settings which add flexibility across various truck setups. On the neck, a rotating work light illuminates the area for added safety and visibility when loading.

The Guardian is a 3-axle trailer that can be run by itself or with an added flip axle, a spreader bar and flip, a single-axle power booster or a hydraulic flip axle.

The gooseneck uses hydraulics to detach for loading and unloading efficiently — and easily reconnects after. The main bed offers a 22-inch loaded deck height. Operators can adjust the height of the deck for diverse loads with a 5-position variable ride height in the neck and manual ride height in the rear. The trailer’s 26-foot-long, 8-foot-6-inch-wide main deck is constructed with a fully welded I-beam design, using 100K flanges and 80K webs, as well as upper-flange reinforcement.

Heavy-duty swing-out outriggers add 12 inches of deck width on each side for flexibility in the size of loads. The outriggers swing to the middle of the deck, making a strong double-outrigger point in the center of the deck, where it is needed most. A heavy-duty front pull-out outrigger eliminates the need to stow and carry loose outriggers.
