WesTrac incorporates the features of a modular platform trailer, but the axle spacing and footprint are designed specifically to meet DOT requirements for roads and highways on the West Coast. The system is designed for efficient mobilization, higher road speeds and variable widths to achieve dual-lane loading. In some configurations, WesTrac can handle payloads of more than 600,000 lbs.
Barnhart engineers designed WesTrac with Goldhofer, a German company.
"The addition of our Goldhofer WesTrac dual-lane transport system type THP/CA to Barnhart's cool tools inventory gives us the ability to transport over-dimensional and super heavy hauls," says Jeff Latture, Barnhart's senior vice president of sales and marketing.
Barnhart also plans to introduce a new EasTrac System designed specifically to meet DOT requirements on the East Coast.
