Combining the benefits of a close couple lowbed design with a roller paver model, Talbert’s 50CC/RP hybrid trailer offers a longer loading incline and increased lift capacity. This allows the hybrid trailer the ability to haul a greater range of equipment, from loaders and excavators to rollers and pavers. Additionally, the specialty design provides versatility for a larger audience of contractors including general construction, grading, excavation and pavement, according to the manufacturer.

With a deck length of 26-ft. (7.9 m), the new 50CC/RP offers the space for full construction fleet loads, while also featuring a specially-designed slope to allow easy transport of rollers and pavers. The design slopes from the bottom up to create a more moderate incline over a greater distance, approximately a third of the deck length. Finish height at the front of the main beams is 8.75 in. (22 cm). Additionally, the trailer features a bolt-on ramp to provide a more gradual load angle at the rear; 15-degrees rather than the standard 35-degree angle. The 50-ton (45 t) capacity 50CC/RP offers a deck width of 8-ft. 6-in. (2.6 m) and a low deck height of 20-in. (51 cm).

Designed for ease of operation, loading and unloading, the 50CC/RP Hybrid is a non-ground bearing hydraulic gooseneck trailer. Air ride suspension provides a smoother ride, while Talbert’s +3 / -3 control system allows fast and easy height adjustment of the lower and back end.

The 50CC/RP is four-axle capable, offering even greater versatility. It features three axles with fourth axle pin-on configuration. Axle capacity is 25,000-lbs. (11,340 kg) each. To accommodate varying state laws, the trailer offers a dual kingpin setting of 108 and 90.

Built for strength and reliability, the 50CC/RP features a four main beam design and T1, 100,000-psi minimum yield steel construction. The loading ramp is wood-filled and double-hinged to provide strength and traction needed for heavy equipment. To ensure a solid base for any load, Aptiong flooring offers proven performance and durability. Other standard features include rear-loading fenders, LED lights, strobes and battery backup.

Talbert’s newest trailer was designed for Hale Trailer Brake & Wheel, a Talbert dealer for more than 20 years, headquartered in Voorhees, N.J. Hale’s Concord, N.C. branch partnered with Talbert for the World of Asphalt/AGG1 tradeshow and purchased the original model displayed on the show floor. The new trailer complements Talbert’s full product line, while also enhancing the line for the roller paver market.
