Newest XL trailer ready for tall, heavy loads

by Today's Trucking

XL Specialized Trailers’ new XL 120 hydraulic detachable gooseneck (HDG) 3+2 trailer boasts a concentrated capacity rating of 120,000 lb. in 10 feet and a mere 18-inch deck height.

There are several configuration options for hauling equipment, including a 3+2 or 4+1 setup. Its power booster can also be removed to run three, four or five axles in a row.

A modular deck connection adds deck sections or swaps out deck designs and allows for shimming when needed.

The 13-foot low-profile hydraulic gooseneck has a swing clearance of 107 inches along with a 36-inch flip neck extension, and the neck also offers a five-position ride height.

The 26-foot long main deck offers a loaded deck height of 18 inches with a ground clearance of six inches, supporting loads of tall and heavy equipment. The main deck has seven bent d-rings along with 13 chain drops per side to tie things down, while the rear deck is 14 feet long with a 41-inch loaded deck height.

The power booster on the XL 120 uses hydraulic pressure, accompanied by a nitrogen accumulator, to transfer weight from the trailer, while allowing the booster to be flexible for uneven terrain.
