The XL 80 HDG features an 11-ft. long hydraulic gooseneck with XL’s low-profile design, which is popular for its front-loading advantage. A five-position ratchet-style variable ride height allows users to adjust the neck height to fit their various loads. This new two axle construction lowboy is available in three options: a 44 ft., 6-in. overall length with 24 ft. in the well, a 46-ft., 6-in. overall length with 26 ft. in the well, or a 48-ft. overall length with 27 ft., 6 in. in the well. The short gooseneck allows for the main deck to stay as long as possible, an important factor for many users who may need to fit a long load or multiple small pieces of equipment onto the main deck.

The XL 80 HDG’s main deck is constructed with four 14-in.-tall, fully-cambered I-beams as well as 8- and 4-in. stubbed junior I-beams on 12-in. alternating centers. The robust main deck features a 22-in. loaded deck height with eight inches of ground clearance. The trailer offers standard features including 31-in. front flip ramps, six bent D-rings per side, chain drops, 12-in. swing-out outriggers on 24-in. centers and raised apitong decking.

The bucket well at the rear of the main deck is made from the recessed last three cross members of the deck and includes a plate on the bottom. The boom trough in the rear bridge also comes with a plate on the bottom and provides a place for the arm to ride safely. The rear bridge transition of 32 degrees features traction aids for loading, while the 9-ft., 6-in. long rear deck has a 40-in. loaded deck height and is prepped for a flip axle. Optional bolt-on wheel covers are available as load bearing – for parking on – or semi-load bearing – for driving on – and can be removed when not in use for weight reduction.
