Talbert Manufacturing shows off customized 70SA-RC-RA trailer at CONEXPO

The trailer’s design features a flip extension to accommodate a tri-axle Jeep dolly, allowing for maximum load configurations, according to Talbert.

Talbert Manufacturing completed a customized version of its 70SA-RC-RA trailer for Atlas Crane Services Inc. of Aurora, Illinois and displayed it during CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 in Las Vegas. The company says the trailer’s design features a flip extension to accommodate a tri-axle Jeep dolly, and the E3Nitro self-tracking axle extension accommodates a 3+3+3 configuration to enable proper weight distribution and weight transfer. Talbert Manufacturing notes that the trailer maintains a 70-ton rating at half the deck length and offers a 6-inch loaded road clearance.

According to the company, the trailer features a wide center bolster for axles one and two; and two and three; as well as a rear half bolster with a lightweight design of axle three to ensure even weight distribution from the truck to the rear of the trailer. The specialized trailer can run with three, four or five axles in a row and offers a 120-inch swing radius with a gooseneck extension for up to a 222-inch swing radius, Talbert notes. The trailer comes complete with lightweight components and flexible, lightweight fenders over axles one, two and three, which ensures Atlas Crane’s ability to conform to weight regulations without sacrificing the durability required for heavy loads, Talbert says.

Designed for trailers with capacities of up to 85 tons, Talbert notes that the E3Nitro axle extension uses a combination of hydraulic fluid and nitrogen to equalize axle pressures. This provides proportionate weight distribution in each axle grouping. The E3Nitro features a bearing pivot and pivot lockout for backing the trailer. Users can also hydraulically lock in axle loads regardless of the terrain. The E3Nitro, part of a larger series that includes the E2Nitro and E1Nitro, comes standard with two-speed dual landing gear for optimal stability when disconnected from the trailer.
