Heavy-haul trailer maker Talbert Manufacturing, Rensselaer, Ind., has introduced The Equalizer, a nitrogen-assisted dampening system that hydraulically transfers loads in all terrains.
Talbert says The Equalizer provides equal weight distribution for a smoother ride.

Designed for spread axle trailers, the new suspension system provides equal weight distribution in each axle grouping by oscillating around a central self-tracking pivot point. According to Talbert, the system absorbs hauling and loading shocks by dampening axle movement and controlling load transfer. The system allows for a greater range of suspension movement for a smoother ride.

A dual two-speed landing gear makes it easier to connect the trailer to the axle attachment, Talbert says. The Equalizer allows a 14-foot, one-inch spread with 54-inch axle spacing; and a 14-foot, seven-inch spread with 60-inch axle spacing. The system is powered by a Honda gas engine power pack as standard.
