Rogers shows 55-ton platform deck trailer

April 2, 2013

Rogers Brothers Corp. designed a 55-ton platform deck trailer for a Buffalo, NY, company to haul assorted pieces of construction equipment.

The trailer features Rogers’ CobraNeck detachable gooseneck design, which adjusts for various ground clearance positions. The gooseneck is adaptable to multiple tractor fifth wheel heights.

The trailer can handle a load concentrated in any 13 ft. of the 25-ft. long platform deck. The adjustable deck height is standard at 18 in. fully loaded.  A full depth “bucket pocket” at the rear center of the deck and “boom trough” in the rear frame provide additional space to couch excavator booms/buckets to minimize loaded machine height for increased overhead clearance.    

Standard on all CobraNeck models is their new Universal Neck Support, a twin leg neck support jack system that is stronger and has greater reach than previous designs. It fits to all standard tractors eliminating the need for manual blocking.
