March 2012, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
's new 50CC/RP hybrid trailer combines the benefits of a close couple lowbed design with a roller paver model and offers a longer loading incline and better lift capacity, according to the company.
With a deck length of 26-feet, the new 50CC/RP offers the space for full construction fleet loads and features a slope to allow easy transport of rollers and pavers.
This allows the hybrid trailer the ability to haul a greater range of equipment, from loaders and excavators to rollers and pavers. Additionally, the specialty design provides versatility for a larger audience of contractors including general construction, grading, excavation and pavement.
With a deck length of 26-feet, the new 50CC/RP offers the space for full construction fleet loads and features a specially-designed slope to allow easy transport of rollers and pavers. The design slopes from the bottom up to create a more moderate incline over a greater distance, approximately a third of the deck length. Finish height at the front of the main beams is 8.75 inches. Additionally, the trailer features a bolt-on ramp to provide a more gradual load angle at the rear - 15-degrees rather than the standard 35-degree angle. The 50-ton capacity 50CC/RP offers a deck width of 8 feet 6 inches and a low deck height of 20 inches.
The 50CC/RP Hybrid is a non-ground bearing hydraulic gooseneck trailer. Air ride suspension provides a smoother ride, while Talbert's +3 / -3 control system allows easy height adjustment of the lower and back end.
The 50CC/RP is four-axle capable and features three axles with fourth axle pin-on configuration. Axle capacity is 25,000-pounds each. To accommodate varying state laws, the trailer offers a dual kingpin setting of 108 and 90.
It features a four main beam design and T1, 100,000-PSI minimum yield steel construction. The loading ramp is wood-filled and double-hinged to provide strength and traction needed for heavy equipment. To ensure a solid base for any load, Aptiong flooring offers proven performance and durability. Other standard features include rear-loading fenders, LED lights, strobes and battery backup.
