XL Specialized unveils paver trailer

by Today's Trucking

XL Specialized Trailers has added a low-profile hydraulic detachable (HDG) gooseneck trailer to its lineup, delivering a new option for those hauling paving equipment.

The trailer has tapered front beams, offering a four-degree load angle, as well as 42-inch flip ramps to support loading.

The 13-foot gooseneck has a swing clearance of 110 inches, and the relief cut out in the gooseneck offers some extra space between the truck and trailer. The sloped nose of the gooseneck protects the air and electric connections.

The neck, meanwhile, offers a five-position ride height. Based on neck position and load, the deck can be leveled as needed with the adjustable wheel area ride height.

It has a capacity of 110,000 lb. in 12 feet, an overall length of 53 feet, and an 8.5-foot width.

There’s also a 26-foot main deck featuring a 24-inch loaded deck height and eight-inch ground clearance. And there’s a 14-foot rear deck with a 40-inch loaded deck height.

The deck itself is constructed with Apitong.

Other features include seven pairs of bent D-rings along the outer beams, 13 chain drops per side on the outer rails, four chain drops around the toolbox, and swing-out outriggers on 24-inch centers.

Chains and other items can be stored in a toolbox at the front of the main deck, and a deep bucket well at the rear makes room for an excavator bucket without detaching the lower boom section.
