Talbert Manufacturing exhibited customized 60CC-RC trailer at CONEXPO

The deck of the custom trailer incorporates a 9-foot, 6-inch-wide raised center deck.

Talbert Manufacturing says it completed a customized version of its 60CC-RC trailer, offering enhanced weight distribution options and a reinforced deck for greater versatility, and displayed it at CONEXPO. The fixed four-axle close-couple trailer, designed for Bill Miller Equipment Sales Inc., incorporates an option to add a fifth axle for improved weight distribution to meet load restrictions in various states throughout the Northeast, Talbert Manufacturing says. 

The custom-built trailer features a ratchet gooseneck design and a 28-foot deck length (27-foot, 6-inch clear deck length) with a 114-inch swing radius, and a 24-inch flip-up and removable gooseneck extension for a 138-inch swing radius. The deck incorporates a 9-foot, 6-inch-wide raised center deck with capabilities for an additional 4-foot reinforced beam deck and 6-foot raised center deck inserts.

The 60CC-RC comes with Talbert’s standard heavy-duty T-1, 100,000-psi minimum yield steel and Valspar R-Cure 800 paint with clearcoat.
