Talbert drop-deck supports small, medium equipment moves

by Today's Trucking

Talbert Manufacturing has introduced a fixed-neck, drop-deck trailer for small- to mid-sized equipment movers that work in oil field, agricultural, construction and demolition applications.

The 35-ton 35FG-BVTL is rated at 70,000 lb. concentrated in 20 feet, and features hydraulic ramps for loading and unloading.

Part of Talbert’s Double Drop Series, the 48-foot trailer includes a 22-foot deck that is 8.5 feet wide, and an 8.5-foot bridge section.

The fixed neck comes at a lower cost than removable goosenecks when operators don’t need to unload from the front. And the 84-inch swing radius and 18-inch kingpin setting increases maneuverability. The gooseneck also has two-speed landing gear and standard sand shoes.

The 36-inch sloping beavertail features a 14.98-degree load angle and a full-width plate with traction bars outside the main beams to support rear loading. Hydraulic ramps also remove the need to manually lower or raise the equipment.

The deck flooring is 1.5-inch Apitong, while the deck height is a mere 30 inches, 40 inches for the rear bridge. There’s also a 10-inch road clearance to maximize headroom.

It’s made with 100,000-psi minimum yield steel and coated in Valspar R-Cure 800 paint.
