Rated at 130,000 lbs. (58,967 kg) capacity overall and 130,000 lbs. in 10-ft. (3 m) concentrated, the XL 130 Hydraulic Detachable Gooseneck (HDG) mulit-axle trailer is perfect for hauling larger construction equipment. The hydraulic multi-axle unit includes a three-axle trailer, two-axle east coast booster, and two-axle jeep (with a pin on axle on the jeep). The jeep is designed for higher versatility and allows for a better load distribution. The XL classic-style hydraulic gooseneck is 12 ft. 5 in. (3.8 m) long and includes a 49-in. (124 cm) fifth wheel height with seven ride height positions as well as a 72-in. (183 cm) flip neck for the two-axle jeep.

The main deck is 9 ft. (2.7 m) wide and has a length of just over 26 ft. (7.9 m) with a ground clearance of 8 inches. The width of the main deck can be extended to 11 ft. (3.3 m) with 12 in. (30.5 cm) heavy-duty removable swing out outriggers.

The main deck also is outfitted with five bent D-rings and four pan-style D-rings per side and 31-in. (79 cm) front flip ramps. An open boom trough goes into a 5-ft. (1.5 m) bucket well with a steel plated bottom on the rear bridge for added durability, and the design also allows the boom to be knuckled under without hitting or damaging the cylinder. The deck also features 1 ¾-in. (4.4 cm) raised apitong decking — a wood stronger than oak.

The rear deck is 14 ft. 2 in. (4.3 m) long with a loaded deck height of 43 in. (109 cm) and includes a battery back up for the strobe lights. The trailer has an airlift on the third axle to reduce wear and frame reinforcement for the two-axle booster. The rear deck also possesses raised heavy-duty load-bearing wheel covers for equipment to be parked on.

For extra versatility, the XL 130 HDG connects different ways for scaling with an east coast booster and can be run as a five-axle, 3 + 2, or 4 + 1.

“The new XL 130 HDG multi-axle trailer is flexible, versatile, rugged and incredibly durable for a variety of offerings in the construction market,” said Rodney Crim, director of sales at XL Specialized Trailers. “We at XL Trailers greatly value our customers, and this is another example of us meeting customers’ needs.
