XL Specialized Trailers is introducing the XL 120 Low-Profile Hydraulic Detachable Gooseneck this spring. The trailer is the newest addition to the company’s construction equipment hauling line. This model is rated at 110,000-lbs. in 10-ft. and 120,000-lbs. in 16-ft. in the center of the deck. The trailer is engineered for heavier construction equipment, according to the manufacturer.
The newly designed trailer features a low-profile neck construction that contractors need to load their equipment over the neck, the company said. The 13-ft.-long gooseneck has a 36-in. long flip neck attachment for use with a four-axle truck. This set-up offers a 146-in. swing clearance, allowing weight to be distributed to the steer axle of the truck. The five-position variable ride height allows users to adjust the neck height to fit their various loads.
The XL 120 Low-Profile HDG comes in the standard 53-ft. overall length, or a 55-ft. version for even longer loads. With 54-1Ž2-in. axle spacing, the 53-ft.-long trailer has a main deck that offers a full 26-ft. in the well. Sixty inch axle spacing is also available.
The main deck is constructed with four 16-in. tall, fully-cambered I-beams connected with 10-in. and 4-in. stubbed junior I-beams on 12-in. alternating centers for maximum strength, as well as 24-in. loaded deck height with 8-in. of ground clearance.
The trailer also features standard 31-in. front flip ramps, seven bent D-rings and 12 chain drops per side, and heavy-duty swing-out outriggers on 24-in. centers to combine for a completely equipped main deck, ready for any piece of equipment.
The last three cross members in the main deck are recessed to make a bucket well for the bucket of an excavator to sit low in without damaging the cylinder, while the open boom trough in the rear bridge provides a place for the arm to ride safely. The 32-degree rear bridge transition features traction aids for loading. The rear deck is prepped for a two-axle booster, resulting in an extremely flexible trailer, allowing for more varied loads that are able to go through more areas. The three-axle trailer can be set up as a straight four-axle using a pin-on or as a 3+2 using a spreader bar with two axles at the end.
“This new XL 120 Low-Profile HDG is an important addition to our construction line-up for many reasons,” said Rodney Crim, vice president of sales at XL Specialized Trailers. “Our customers needed a model for their heavier equipment, and with ratings of 120,000-lbs. in 16-ft. or 110,000-lbs. in 10-ft. We have achieved that and adding many features to the standard unit makes the XL 120 HDG a very user-friendly solution in the marketplace.”
