Specialized carriers can now haul their “super loads” on Rogers specialized application model. This trailer was specifically designed and built for a major southwestern utility company to transport emergency transformers. It also will haul rough terrain cranes, excavators or other heavy equipment with little or no breakdown.
Stretching out more than 90 ft. (27 m), this 60-ton (54 t) capacity trailer features three air-ride axles with 54-1/2 in. (138 cm) axle spacings combined with a 14 ft. 1 in. (4.2 m) booster assembly and two detachable axles. The booster can easily be removed and the rear assembly can be run as a 3-axle, close-coupled 4-axle, or a 5-axle when hauling lighter loads or when a spread axle configuration is not required. The trailer also features Rogers’ detachable rear frame for quick and easy axle load re-distributions. The 26 ft. (7.9 m) platform deck easily fits under most super loads, according to the manufacturer.
This model incorporates Rogers’ No Foot self-lifting gooseneck, which operates on low hydraulic pressures utilizing standard truck-tractor PTO or a self-contained gas engine power unit that can easily and safely raise or lower the deck under full load. Rogers’ tapered, self-aligning beam hook connection offers a quick and safe gooseneck-to-deck connection. The ground-hugging Croucher design has tapered mainbeams for maximum loading stability. An additional feature of this model is a “Dolly Link”, increasing the swing clearance to 182 in. (462 cm), to distribute the trailer’s kingpin load onto the tandem-axle, air-ride suspension helper dolly and the tractor.
