Talbert has produced a hybrid “paver special” trailer that combines the benefits of a -couple lowbed design with roller paver accessibility. The 50CC-PS hybrid trailer offers a longer loading incline and a lifting capacity that is the best in its class, Talbert said.
The 50CC-PS has a deck length of 26 ft., offering the space for full construction fleet loads, while also featuring a specially designed slope to allow easy transport of rollers and pavers. The design slopes from the bottom up to create a more moderate incline over a greater distance, approximately a third of the deck length.
Finish height at the front of the main beams is 8 ¾ in. Additionally, the trailer features a bolt-on ramp to provide a more gradual load angle at the rear, 15 deg. rather than the standard 35-deg. angle. The 50-ton capacity 50CC-PS offers a deck width of 8 ft., 6 in. and a low deck height of 20 in.
Designed for ease of operation, loading and unloading, the 50CC-PS is a non-ground bearing hydraulic gooseneck trailer. Air ride suspension provides a smoother ride, while Talbert’s +3 / -3 control system allows fast and easy height adjustment of the lower and back end, the company said.
The 50CC-PS features three axles with fourth axle pin-on configuration. Axle capacity is 25,000 lbs. each. To accommodate varying state laws, the trailer offers a dual kingpin setting of 108 and 90.
The trailer features a four main-beam design and T1, 100,000-PSI minimum yield steel construction. The loading ramp is wood-filled and double-hinged to provide strength and traction needed for heavy equipment. To ensure a solid base for any load, Apitong flooring offers proven performance and durability. Other standard features include rear-loading fenders, LED lights, strobes and battery backup.
