XL Specialized Trailers has released the XL 80 Power Tail trailer, designed for transporting medium-duty construction equipment.
The trailer features a hydraulic, fold-under flip tail for quick loading and unloading of hard-to-load equipment. With a load angle of ten degrees, the hydraulic tail is equipped to handle man lifts, rollers, forklifts and paving equipment. The XL Power Tail is rated at 80,000 pounds overall and 50,000 pounds concentrated in 10 feet.
The tail has a lifting capacity of 25,000 pounds for loads centered on the main platform. The tail is made up of two sections, an 8-foot, 8-inch platform ramp and a 60-inch flip tail. Lug-style hinges prevent debris from accumulating to keep hinge points clean.
The trailer offers standard features to make drivers’ jobs easier: a hydraulic pop-up ramp connecting the deck to the gooseneck, a foot hole and grab handle on each side of the gooseneck for climbing onto the deck, an 18,000-pound hydraulic winch with a two-function wireless remote and an air kick-out for hauling inoperable equipment or static loads. Raised Apitong and quarter-inch self-cleaning star traction decking, D-ring stake pockets, chain slots and a work light can also add convenience.
The XL 80 Power Tail is available in two lengths: 48 feet or 53 feet. There are customized options to choose from such as an 8- or 10-function remote, workaround pulley for winch cable, steel tread plate on the flip tail and pop-up ramp, and various winches to customize the trailer for specific needs.
