Ideal for the heavy-duty towing and recovery industry, the SSTA 5053 is loaded with more standard features (over conventional units) in a base model while delivering cost-effective versatility in a variety of applications. With a 50-ton capacity; a 41-foot-6-inch lower deck and 53-feet in overall length, the SSTA 5053 Traveling Axle Trailer features a 6-degree loading angle and a 14-degree dumping angle making it suitable as a general purpose trailer, or for the easy loading and off-loading of non-operating equipment – particularly pieces with lower ground clearance.
The Talbert SSTA 5053 exhibited at the show is equipped with a 20,000-lb planetary winch (15,000-lb is standard). Due to its direct drive system, the planetary winch is much preferred over the traditional worm gear design seen on many competitive units – and importantly, it offers up to twice or more the loading speed over the worm gear winch. Talbert’s planetary winch is conveniently operated via a multi-function wireless remote, allowing one operator to load and steer a piece of non-operational equipment without having to leave the trailer.
For long-term, reliable, heavy-duty performance, the Talbert SSTA 5053 is comprised of a T-1 & 80K Steel beam constructed framework; 4-inch I-beam cross members on 9-inch centers; and 1-1/2 inch apitong flooring. Among many other standard features, the SSTA 5053 includes air-ride suspension; a two-speed landing gear, hub-piloted steel disc wheels, and both side and center tie-down slots for greater loading ease and application flexibility.
For A.T. Expo attendees, Greg D. Smith, vice-president of sales and marketing for Talbert Mfg; and Bill Fryer, vice-president of sales for Hale Trailer; along with sales and service engineers, will be on hand at the show booth to answer customer and media questions.
