Trailer’s lower deck height offers haulers added flexibility

By |  March 18, 2014

The 55SA-LD trailer from Talbert Manufacturing, a 55-ton spread-axle, low-deck trailer, features an 18-in. deck height and an E1Nitroso it can run with three axles, four axles close-coupled or as a three-plus-one spread-axle. The trailer is a solution for haulers who need the flexibility of a low deck height and the flexibility to run a variety of configurations, Talbert says.

According to a press release, the deck height is two inches lower than Talbert’s standard 55SA unit. The company says the extra two inches provide an advantage for haulers who need to haul heavy and oversized equipment under bridges or through tunnels with low clearance rather than making trips around them.

The standard Talbert 55SA-LD features a non-ground-bearing hydraulic gooseneck design with a 108-in. swing radius. The trailer’s 24-in. flip gooseneck extension results in a 132-in. swing radius that allows haulers to transfer additional load from the drive axles to the steer axle of their tractors. The E1Nitro also allows companies to expand their service regions into states that require the fourth axle to be at least 14 ft., 1 in. from the third axle.
