55-ton extendable trailer

15 May 2017

Talbert Manufacturing introduces its 55SA-TELE heavy-haul trailer, featuring a deck length of 54' when open. Operators can retract the trailer to 32' 6” which  shortens the overall trailer length to 53', eliminating the need for permits. Talbert designed the 55SA-TELE with a 90" swing radius that can be extended to 114" with the use of a gooseneck extension. Users can set up the trailer as a four-axle close coupled, 2 + 2 spread axle or 3 + 1 spread axle configuration. The third and fourth axles can be flipped or removed, plus a 24" pinned and hinged gooseneck extension can also can be flipped. The unit features a 29' wood deck in the front and a 3' Apitong platform in the rear with beams stretching between. The trailer expands and locks in 4' increments. The 55SA-TELE also is equipped with Talbert’s ENitro nitrogen assisted dampening system. ENitro provides a safe and stable platform that virtually eliminates bridging of the spreader. The system’s nitrogen accumulator oscillates around a central self-tracking pivot point to provide proportional weight distribution in each axle grouping. It sets the axle load capacity and keeps it there as the system equalizes up and down articulation. The trailer also features low deck heights of 20", which optimizes headspace for taller equipment. The trailer has an air ride suspension and can be equipped with optional Dura-Bright aluminum wheels, strobe lights at each axle, and a battery backup that powers the lighting package when the trailer is disconnected from the truck power. The trailer is built with 100,000-psi minimum yield steel, giving it the durability to withstand harsh day-to-day environments.
