Talbert Manufacturing to Unveil Two New Trailer Models at Mid-America Show
Talbert Manufacturing will be exhibiting two of their newest custom trailers at this year’s Mid-America Trucking Show. These trailer models are the Double Drop 35-Ton HRG trailer and the Beam Deck 55-Ton RA trailer. According to Talbert Manufacturings’ VP of marketing and sales, Greg Smith, these trailers have resulted from customized and specific design features so as to meet the exacting specifications of their customers, and also have upgraded engineering initiatives which deliver better longevity, ease of use, flexibility and capacity.
Their engineering and sales staff will be present at their booth at the show to explain the applications, benefits and features of these trailers or their other models of custom trailers. The Beam Deck 55-Ton RA trailer has a gooseneck which is ground bearing, customized with a swing clearance of 114 inches, which allows the driver to get more weight on steer axle. The beam deck measures 26 feet, which facilitates overall lighter weight at a ground clearance which is lower. This trailer also has a heavy duty, four axle, suspension which offers a capacity of 30,000 pounds.
It also has a four hydraulic powerful cylinder which is designed for a higher lift capacity, compared to other competitive models which offer only two cylinders. This model also has an advantage when it comes to load capacity compared to comparable models. It has a capacity rating of 110,000 pounds at a load base of 13 feet. This trailer has a modular design which allows for more flexibility and use of varieties of equipments.
There is also an optional deck insert of four feet which can be pinned before the front axle or behind the deck so as to increase the length of the deck by 30 feet. The other new Double Drop 35-Ton HRG has been customized so as to haul machinery used in agriculture. This trailer is differentiated amongst many others by its aluminum innovative system of pull out, which measures two feet on both sides, to accommodate equipment pieces which are wider at lesser heights.
To provide increased flexibility, the unit also features a removable hydraulic gooseneck with five ride heights as well as an additional deck of full width above the gooseneck so as to haul excess dunnage. Similar to most trailers from Talbert, this model has also been designed having four hydraulic cylinders for higher lift capacity. The overall length of this trailer is 48 feet, and has an air ride suspension tandem rear axles.
