This spring XL Specialized Trailers introduces the XL 120 Low-Profile Hydraulic Detachable Gooseneck (HDG), the newest addition to its construction equipment hauling line. This model is rated at 110,000 pounds in 10 feet and 120,000 pounds in 16 feet in the center of the deck.
The company said the trailer features a low-profile neck construction that contractors need to load their equipment over the neck. The 13-foot long gooseneck has a 36-inch long flip neck attachment for use with a four-axle truck. According to the company, this set-up offers a 146-inch 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 trailer comes in the standard 53-ft. overall length, or a 55 foot version for even longer loads, the company said. With 54-½ inch axle spacing, the 53-ft. long trailer has a main deck that offers a full 26 feet in the well and 60-inch axle spacing is also available. The main deck is constructed with four 16-inch tall, fully-cambered I-beams connected with 10-inch and 4-inch stubbed junior I-beams on 12-inch alternating centers, as well as 24-inch loaded deck height with 8 inches of ground clearance.
“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. “Our customers needed a model for their heavier equipment, and with ratings of 120,000 pounds in 16-feet or 110,000 pounds in 10-feet, 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.”
