Talbert releases 60-ton spread-axle trailer

Talbert Manufacturing has introduced a new 60-ton trailer that accommodates both tri-axle and tandem axle jeeps.

The 60/65SA trailer features 2+2, 3+1 and 4 axle close coupled configurations, which provides customers flexibility to carry a variety of load options.

The trailer offers a 60-ton capacity rating with its 4.1 metres, two-point rigid load base as a 2+2 or 3+1 configuration. Owners are able to configure the trailer with four close-coupled axles with no gooseneck extension, which provides a 65-ton capacity with the trailer’s 4.1 metre, two-point rigid load base. The configuration saves fuel and alleviates costs associated with additional permitting, according to Talbert.

The 60/65SA features an optional 178 cm, flip-up gooseneck extension to achieve a 482-cm swing radius, while its removable kingpin stations allow for 305 cm and 274 cm swing radius.

Customers may choose Talbert’s optional hydraulic linkage, eliminating the need for manually flipping the gooseneck extension. The trailer comes standard with a 9.1 metre by 2.6 metre-wide deck, providing ample space for a variety of loads. Talbert also offers optional deck lengths, deck types, and widths. The 60/65SA’s deck features a 56 cm deck height, one of the lowest in the industry, simplifying loading and unloading of a variety of equipment.

This trailer is equipped with Talbert’s optional East Coast-style E2Nitro spreader. The E2Nitro uses a combination of hydraulic fluid and nitrogen to equalize axle pressures, providing proportionate weight distribution of each axle grouping.

This optimizes the range of suspension movement, which minimizes stress and provides a smooth ride. As well, the E2Nitro features a bearing pivot and pivot lockout for backing the trailer. Users are also able to hydraulically lock in axle loads regardless of terrain.

The E2Nitro is standard with a two-speed dual landing gear for optimal stability when disconnected from the trailer.

Like all its trailers, Talbert manufactures the 60/65SA with heavy-duty T-1, 100,000-psi minimum yield steel. Talbert trailers are standard with Valspar R-Cure 800 paint to prevent corrosion.
