Talbert Manufacturing’s Oil Field Trailer Series is designed specifically for the oil and gas industry.
The three-trailer Oil Field Series consists of a 3-axle, 35-ton (31.7 t) step deck; a 4-axle, 60-ton (54 t) fixed-gooseneck trailer; and a 5-axle, 65-ton (59 t), fixed-gooseneck trailer. Because oil extraction requires frequent relocation of skid-mounted equipment such as generators, housing units, compressors, oil rigging equipment and pipe sections, Talbert designed this series specifically for that purpose.
A winch, tail rollers and optional pop-up rollers make pulling equipment onto the deck easier and more efficient. Weevil pins line the sides of the trailer and serve as vertical rollers to guide the equipment straight onto the trailer. And pipe pockets line the 60- and 65-ton trailers so operators can insert large stakes vertically to stack and haul pipe sections without shift during transport.
For traveling over rough terrain, the 60-ton and 65-ton trailers feature a high-arch profile. This design provides additional space between the tractor and the bottom of the gooseneck to prevent the two from making contact in bumpy, off-road applications.
Although Talbert manufactures the trailers with the same design parameters as its other lines, the company constructs its Oil Field Series in a slightly different manner so they can handle the demands of the oil and gas industry. These trailers have more welds in the cross members so they can handle twisting and turning when traveling off road from site to site.
