June 14 - Talbert Manufacturing has launched its 50-ton (45.4-tonne) capacity Bus Hauler (50CC-BH), which is capable of hauling a wide range of oversized equipment.
According to Troy Geisler, Talbert vice president of marketing and sales: "This trailer is ideal for our customers that haul a variety of equipment." The trailer was designed with a remote-controlled in-deck winch so users can load equipment from either the front or rear of the trailer; it is capable of hauling equipment with low clearance and long wheelbases, including buses, excavators and class A trucks.
The 50CC-BH is equipped with three close-coupled axles and features a 22 ft 6 inch (6.9 m) lower deck length, plus a 20 ft 5 inch (6.2 m) rear bridge, which creates a 43 ft (13 m) load base.
The trailer has a 21 inch (0.5 m) deck height and 24 inch (0.6 m) flip-up gooseneck, which increases the unit's 84 inch (2.1 m) swing radius to 108 inches (2.7 m). This allows the unit to be used with both three and four-axle trucks and keeps the trailer within the 53 ft (16.2 m) overall length limit when running empty.
