Talbert Launches 50CC-PS Hybrid Trailer
September 2012, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
Talbert has launched the 50CC-PS hybrid "paver special" trailer. Combining the benefits of a close-couple lowbed design with roller paver accessibility, the 50CC-PS offers a longer loading incline.
This allows the 50CC-PS the ability to haul a larger 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-PS has the space for full construction fleet loads, while also featuring a 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 3/4 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-PS offers a deck width of 8 feet, 6 inches and a low deck height of 20 inches.
Designed for ease of operation, loading and unloading, the 50CC-PS 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-PS is four-axle capable, offering even greater versatility. It 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.
The 50CC-PS 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, Apitong flooring offers proven performance and durability. Other standard features include rear-loading fenders, LED lights, strobes and battery backup.
