Talbert Manufacturing’s 35-Ton Fixed Neck Trailer Offers Dependability for Day-to-Day Loads
Talbert Manufacturing introduces the 35FG-BVTL, a fixed-neck, drop deck trailer for small- to mid-size equipment machinery movers operating in oil fields, agriculture and construction and demolition. The 35t trailer is rated at 70,000 lb (31,751kg) concentrated in 20 ft (6m) and features hydraulic ramps for safe, efficient loading and unloading in confined spaces. The 35FG-BVTL is part of Talbert’s Double Drop Series. The overall length of the 35FG-BVTL is 48 ft (14.6m), which includes a 22-ft (6.7m) long, 8.5-ft (2.6m) wide deck, and an 8.5-ft (2.6m) rear bridge section. The trailer’s fixed neck provides an economic alternative compared to removable gooseneck designs for operators that do not require a front unload option. Talbert designed the 35FG-BVTL with an 84-in (2,133mm) swing radius and 18-in (457.2mm) kingpin setting for increased maneuverability and versatility. The gooseneck features 2-speed landing gear with standard sand shoes. The 3-ft (.9m) sloping beavertail features a 14.98-degree load angle coupled with full-width plate with traction bars outside the main beams for optimal rear loading. Hydraulic ramps also allow for increased safety during loading by removing the need to manually lower or raise the equipment.Contractors can use the 35FG-BVTL to haul a variety of small- to mid-size construction equipment, making it economic and versatile choice for millwrights, riggers, and general freight contractors. The trailer’s recessed cross members in the rear bridge allow for easy positioning of an excavator boom. The deck flooring is 1.5-in (38mm) Apitong, which provides exceptional strength for long-term durability under heavy loads. Talbert manufactures all its trailers with heavy-duty T-1 steel for extreme durability and longevity. Like all of the company’s trailers, the 35FG-BVTL comes standard with Valspar R-Cure 800® paint to prevent corrosion for a long-lasting finish and better return on investment.
