Talbert 55-Ton Telescopic Trailer
The multi-purpose Talbert 55-Ton Hydraulic Detach Telescopic Trailer delivers superior adaptability to a variety of loads as its telescopic deck extends from 30- to 50-feet – giving haulers what they need, when they need it – and offering the advantages of transporting large self-supporting loads such as steel tanks, large generators, and much more. Furthermore its 20-inch loaded deck height is preferred over the 22- to 24-inch loaded deck heights seen on conventional units.
Its versatile spread axle capabilities allow a 2 + 2; or a 3 + 1 configuration; and its tandem axle features connections for a third axle that can be flipped or removed. The unit is also equipped with connections for a future fourth axle. Additionally, this Talbert Telescopic Trailer is engineered with a pinned and hinged gooseneck extension that can be flipped. The ability to flip or remove the third axle, and the capability of flipping the gooseneck extension delivers key advantages during empty travel by allowing haulers to retract to an overall trailer length that is less than 53 feet.
Among standard features, the Talbert 55-Ton Telescopic Trailer is equipped with air-ride suspension; Dura-Bright aluminum outer wheels; strobe lights at the rear of each axle; and a battery back-up that powers the lighting package when the trailer is disconnected from the truck cab.
