Talbert Manufacturing, a manufacturer of trailers based in Rensselaer, Ind., is now offering its 2+3+2 65-ton HRG East Coast trailer for prospective customers. The trailer’s design includes a flip extension to accommodate a tandem-axle jeep dolly, permitting it for use in all states at full rating, the company says. The trailer also has been designed for flexibility and versatility. The gooseneck trailer is ideal for a variety of markets, including general construction, heavy-haul trucking and oil fields. 
The 65-ton HRG trailer is designed with the ability to add a tag- or pin-on axle to the jeep to allow a 3+3+2 axle configuration. Especially crucial for those without a four-axle tractor, operators can access the optional pin-on axle for the jeep to maintain axles that are legal to scale the payload. Featuring 60-inch axle spacing, as well as an airlift on axle three and a chain lift on axles one, two,four and five, the trailer is capable of running with three, four or five axles in a row without the booster. Additionally, the trailer is equipped with an optional Cleral onboard scale system that meets the toughest trucking industry requirements, Talbert says.
Offering a 28-foot deck length, the 65-ton HRG is rated for 65-tons in any 14-feet of deck length. It’s also adaptable to accommodate an additional 10-foot section of deck, varying in type from beam to drop side. Loaded deck height is 22-inches and the trailer features a 8-foot, 6-inch deck width.
Engineered with heavy-duty T-1, 100,000-PSI minimum yield steel construction, upper-flange reinforcement on the deck, and auxiliary cross members for extra support, the 65-ton HRG trailer offers unmatched strength, reliability and longevity. Standard features include air-ride suspension and connections for a PTO system, while an onboard power pack to operate its trailer hydraulic system, removable fenders over the tires and polished aluminum wheels are optional.
