XL Specialized Trailers has introduced a new trailer to their lineup with the XL 80 Power Tail trailer. The trailer features a hydraulic fold-under flip tail ramp for quick loading and unloading of hard-to-load equipment, according to the company.
“With a load angle of ten degrees, the hydraulic tail is equipped to easily handle man lifts, rollers, forklifts and paving equipment,” the company said. “The XL Power Tail is rated at 80,000 lbs. overall and 50,000 lbs. concentrated in 10 Ft. The tail has a lifting capacity of 25,000 lbs. for loads centered on the main platform. The tail is comprised of two sections – an 8-ft. 8-in. platform ramp and a 60-in. flip tail. Lug-style hinges prevent debris from accumulating, keeping both hinge points clean.”
According to the company, this model offers standard features to make drivers’ jobs easier: a hydraulic pop-up ramp connecting the deck to the gooseneck, a foot hole and grab handle on each side of the gooseneck for climbing onto the deck, an 18,000-lb. hydraulic winch with a two-function wireless remote and an air kick-out for hauling inoperable equipment or static loads.
The XL 80 Power Tail is available in two lengths: 48 feet or 53 feet. There are customized options to choose from such as an 8- or 10-function remote, workaround pulley for winch cable, steel tread plate on the flip tail and pop-up ramp, and various winches to customize the trailer.
