Heavy-haul trailer maker Talbert Manufacturing introduced its 65SA modular trailer that incorporates multiple axle configurations, based on customer requirements, for optimum versatility and regulatory compliance.

The trailer’s design features a flip extension to accommodate a tandem- or tri-axle jeep dolly. It can also pair with Talbert’s E2 or E3Nitro axle extension, which dampens axle movement and controls load transfer.

The modular trailer maintains a 65-ton rating at half the deck length with a 16-inch loaded side deck height and 6-inch loaded road clearance, the Rensselaer, Ind.-based company reported.

“Every day, loads are getting bigger, wider and heavier,” said Troy Geisler, vice president of sales at Talbert Manufacturing. “On top of that, government agencies are pushing for stricter controls to protect aging infrastructure.”

The 65SA Modular Trailer is designed to help operators adjust axle configurations to fit the specific requirements of the load and the road, Geisler added.

Talbert manufactures the 65SA Modular Trailer with heavy-duty T-1, 100,000-psi minimum yield steel for extreme durability and longevity. Talbert trailers also come standard with Valspar R-Cure 800 paint to prevent corrosion, offering a long-lasting finish and better return on investment.

“While every Talbert trailer is built to customer specifications, the 65SA is one of our most adaptable models,” Geisler said. “Adding additional axles after the fact can’t increase capacity, but factoring in these options during design allows our engineers to provide maximum flexibility with Talbert’s unmatched strength, reliability and longevity.” — Transport Topics
