Talbert Manufacturing now offers the 65SA modular trailer that incorporates multiple axle configurations based on user requirements.

The multiple axle configurations offer versatility, according to Talbert.

The trailer’s design features a flip extension to accommodate a tandem- or tri-axle jeep dolly, allowing for maximum load configurations. It can also pair with Talbert’s E2 or E3Nitro axle extension, the company says, dampening axle movement and controling load transfer. The modular trailer maintains a 65-ton rating at half the deck length with a 16-in. loaded side deck height and 6-in. loaded road clearance.

Talbert plans to feature a 3+3+2 configuration, raised-center version of the 65SA at ConExpo-Con/Agg 2020.

“Every day, loads are getting bigger, wider and heavier,” says Troy Geisler, vice president of sales and marketing at Talbert Manufacturing. “On top of that, government agencies are pushing for stricter controls to protect aging infrastructure. To help our customers stay ahead of the curve – to run safely and efficiently, no matter their area of operation – Talbert has always offered first-class engineering and industry-leading versatility. The 65SA modular trailer is designed to help operators adjust axle configurations to fit the specific requirements of the load and the road.”

The 65-ton modular trailer is individually engineered for customized axle configurations including 2+3+2, 3+3+2 or other variations. Adding a tri-axle jeep allows a 3+3+3 configuration, the company adds.

Featuring 60.5-in. axle spacing, as well as an airlift on axle three and a chain lift on axles one, two, four and five, the trailer is capable of running with three, four or five axles in a row without a booster. The base model offers a 120-in. swing radius with connections for up to 70-in. gooseneck extension and can be custom-designed to provide a larger swing radius, if necessary.

The company’s E2 or E3Nitro axle extension can also be engineered into the design. This technology uses a combination of hydraulic fluid and nitrogen to equalize axle pressures, providing proportionate weight distribution of each axle grouping. According to Talbert, it optimizes the range of suspension movement, which minimizes stress and provides a smooth ride.

In addition, the ENitro system features a bearing pivot and pivot lockout for backing the trailer. Users can also hydraulically lock in axle loads regardless of terrain.
