Manufacturing picked two newly fine-tuned custom trailer models to exhibit. It brought to the show the Talbert 55-Ton Raised Center (RC) Trailer with the new
Equalizer system; and the Talbert 55-Ton Roller Paver Trailer with a
multi-positional, adjustable ratchet-style gooseneck.
these trailers is the result of improved design and engineering initiatives
based upon listening to the marketplace and providing products that deliver
greater longevity, load capacity, flexibility, ease of use, and a keen competitive
edge to our customers,” said vice president of sales and marketing Greg D Smith.
55-Ton RC Trailer, purchased by Bill Miller Equipment Sales, features a
non-ground bearing gooseneck and a raised 26feet (7.9m) center deck, which
allows a 15.5inch (394mm) loaded deck side height to accommodate various
transport height regulations. Talbert said that it has an advantage in load
capacity over comparable models with a rating of 55US tons (50tonnes) capacity
in a load base of 13feet (4m). It is equipped with the Equalizer – a
nitrogen-assisted dampening system designed to balance loads in all terrains. Operators
can make easy and quick adjustments, and maintain those settings to maximize
loads safely and efficiently, said Talbert.
55-Ton Roller Paver Trailer features an adjustable, self-contained gooseneck using
a ‘ratchet-style’ design to provide additional ride-height settings. This feature allows the operator to make
adjustments to the gooseneck ride-height by using a lever located on the
driver’s side of the trailer. Additionally, the unit is engineered with a
lighter-weight, tapered-deck design for ease of loading and unloading, said
