Talbert Manufacturing is exhibiting two highly flexible and versatile custom trailer models at the 2012 Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) March 22 to 24, in Booth #13136. Attendees will view the Talbert 2+3+2 65-ton (59 t) HRG east coast trailer with a tandem-axle jeep dolly; and the Talbert 35-ton (32 t) SRG double drop trailer.

The Talbert 2+3+2 65-ton HRG (hydraulic removable gooseneck) east coast trailer features a gooseneck and flip extension to accommodate a tandem-axle jeep dolly. The unit is designed with the ability to add a tag — or pin-on axle to the jeep to allow a 3+3+2 axle configuration. Importantly, those operators without a 4-axle tractor can access the optional pin-on axle for the jeep to maintain axles that remain legal to scale the payload. Featuring 60-in. (152 cm) axle spacing, as well as an airlift on axle 3; and a chain lift on axles 1, 2, 4 and 5, this trailer also is capable of running with 3, 4 or 5 axles in a row without the booster. Additionally, the trailer is equipped with a Cleral onboard scale system that meets the toughest trucking industry requirements.

Engineered with heavy-duty T-1 steel construction; upper-flange reinforcement on the deck; and stub-in under-deck cross members for extra support, the Talbert 2+3+2 65-ton east coast trailer offers a 22-in. (56 cm) loaded deck height and is rated for 65-tons in any 14-ft. (4.2 m) of deck length. The unit also is adaptable to the addition of a future 10-ft. (3 m) deck section.

The Talbert 65-ton east coast trailer is loaded with extra features that include a Honda pony motor to operate its hydraulic systems; connections for a PTO system; removable fenders over the tires; polished aluminum wheels; and more.

Following the show, the trailer will be stocked by Preferred Lowboys of Houston, Texas — a full service dealer that specializes in open-deck, heavy-haul specialized trailers. Preferred Lowboys is a Talbert “top-ten dealer” recognized for outstanding sales, service and support.

Also at MATS is the Talbert 35-ton SRG double drop trailer, which is differentiated by its aluminum pull-out system (two-ft. on each side) that accommodates wider equipment pieces at lower heights. The unit features a lighter-weight mechanical removable gooseneck.

With a 48-ft. (14.6 m) overall length, this air-ride, tandem-axle unit offers a 29-ft. (8.8 m) deck length with a rated 35-tons distributed, and 30-tons (27 t) in each 10-ft. of deck length; and an 18-in. (45.7 cm) loaded deck height with a 6-in. (15 cm) ground clearance. Additionally, this customized unit offers heavy-duty T1 steel construction, and is equipped with strobe lights, battery backup, aluminum wheels, and connections for a flip axle.

The Talbert 35-ton SRG double drop trailer exhibited at MATS was purchased by Kansas City, Mo.-based Highway Trailer Sales, a Talbert Manufacturing “top-ten dealer.” Highway Trailer Sales is a respected source for new and used semi-trailers — including flat, drop, grain hopper, lowboy, dump, van, extendible platform and more. Highway also offers factory-authorized sales, service and parts support.
