January 3, 2018 — Talbert Manufacturing, a North American leader in specialized heavy-haul solutions, introduces the 60/65SA trailer. This unit has been designed to accommodate both tri-axle and tandem-axle jeeps. It features 2+2, 3+1 and 4 axle close coupled configurations. This innovative Talbert design gives customers flexibility to carry a variety of load options.
The trailer offers a 60-ton capacity rating with its 13-foot 6-inch two-point rigid load base as a 2+2 or 3+1 configuration. Owners also can configure the trailer with four close-coupled axles with no gooseneck extension, which provides a 65-ton capacity with the trailer’s 13-foot 6-inch two-point rigid load base. This versatility saves fuel and alleviates costs associated with additional permitting for maximum return on investment.
The 60/65SA features an optional 70-inch, flip-up gooseneck extension to achieve a 190-inch swing radius while its removable kingpin stations allow for 120-inch and 108-inch swing radiuses. Customers also can choose Talbert’s optional hydraulic linkage, eliminating the need for manually flipping the gooseneck extension. The trailer comes standard with a 30-foot by 8-foot, 6-inch-wide deck, providing ample space for a variety of loads. Talbert also offers optional deck lengths, deck types, and widths. The 60/65SA’s deck features a 22-inch deck height, one of the lowest in the industry. This offers easy loading and unloading of a variety of equipment.
This trailer is equipped with Talbert’s optional East Coast-style E2NitroTM spreader. The E2Nitro uses a combination of hydraulic fluid and nitrogen to equalize axle pressures, providing proportionate weight distribution of each axle grouping. This optimizes the range of suspension movement, which minimizes stress and provides a smooth ride. In addition, the E2Nitro features a bearing pivot and pivot lockout for backing the trailer. Users also can hydraulically lock in axle loads regardless of terrain. The E2Nitro is standard with a two-speed dual landing gear for optimal stability when disconnected from the trailer.
Like all its trailers, Talbert manufactures the 60/65SA with heavy-duty T-1, 100,000-psi minimum yield steel for extreme durability and longevity. Talbert trailers are standard with Valspar R-Cure® 800 paint to prevent corrosion, offering you a long-lasting finish and better return on your investment.
