RENSSELAER, Ind. —   Talbert Manufacturing, a provider of specialty-built trailer and transport system products, will exhibit two new custom trailer models at CONEXPO/CON-AGG 2011 at Las Vegas March 22-26.

Attendees will be able to see the Talbert 55-Ton Raised Center (RC) Trailer with the new Equalizer and the Talbert 55-Ton Roller Paver Trailer with a multi-positional, adjustable (ratchet-style ) gooseneck.

“Each of these trailers is the result of improved design and engineering initiatives based upon listening to the marketplace and providing products that deliver greater longevity, load capacity, flexibility, ease of use and a keen competitive edge to our customers,” Greg D. Smith, vice president of sales and marketing, said. “Our sales and engineering staff will be on-hand at the booth to discuss the features, benefits and applications of these units or any others within our complete line of custom-built trailers.”





The Talbert 55-Ton Raised Center Trailer features a non-ground bearing gooseneck; a raised 26-foot center deck, which allows a 15 ½-inch loaded deck side height to accommodate various transport height regulations as well as an advantage in load capacity over comparable models with a rating of 110,000 pounds capacity in a 13-foot load base.

Equipped with The Equalizer – a nitrogen-assisted dampening system that effectively balances loads in all terrains – operators can make easy and quick adjustments, and maintain those settings to maximize loads safely and efficiently, Smith said.

The Talbert 55-Ton Roller Paver Trailer features an adjustable, self-contained gooseneck utilizing a “ratchet-style” design to provide additional ride-height settings.

This feature allows the operator to make adjustments to the gooseneck ride-height by using a lever located on the driver’s side of the trailer, Smith said. Additionally, the unit is engineered with a lighter-weight, tapered-deck design for ease of loading and unloading.

Founded in 1938, Talbert Manufacturing provides a complete line of heavy haul trailers and specialized transportation equipment for the commercial, industrial, military and government sectors and in applications that include renewable energy, aerospace, heavy construction, in-plant material handling, manufacturing and processing systems.
