Talbert Manufacturing will exhibit two newly fine-tuned custom trailer models at ConExpo/Con-AGG 2011 in Booth number G-340. Attendees will view the Talbert 55-ton (49.9 t) raised center (RC) trailer with the new equalizer; and the Talbert 55-ton roller paver trailer with a multi-positional, adjustable (ratchet-style) gooseneck.

“Each of these trailers is the result of improved design and engineering initiatives based upon listening to the marketplace and providing products that deliver greater longevity, load capacity, flexibility, ease of use, and a keen competitive edge to our customers. Our sales and engineering staff will be on-hand at the booth to discuss the features, benefits and applications of these units or any others within our complete line of custom-built trailers,” said Greg D. Smith, vice president of sales and marketing of Talbert Manufacturing.

The Talbert 55-ton raised center trailer, purchased by Bill Miller Equipment Sales Inc. of Eckhart, Md., features a non-ground bearing gooseneck; a raised 26 ft. (7.9 m) center deck, which allows a 15.5 in. (39 cm) loaded deck side height to accommodate various transport height regulations; and an advantage in load capacity over comparable models with a rating of 110,000-lbs. (49,895 kg) capacity in a 13-ft. (4 m) load base.

Equipped with the equalizer — a nitrogen-assisted dampening system that effectively balances loads in all terrains — operators can make easy and quick adjustments, and maintain those settings to maximize loads safely and efficiently, according to the manufacturer.

The Talbert 55-ton roller paver trailer features an adjustable, self-contained gooseneck utilizing a “ratchet-style” design to provide additional ride-height settings. This feature allows the operator to make adjustments to the gooseneck ride-height by using a lever located on the driver’s side of the trailer. Additionally, the unit is engineered with a lighter-weight, tapered-deck design for ease of loading and unloading.
