Indiana-based Talbert Manufacturing has added a 50-Ton 5051 Travelling Axle trailer to its catalogue for customers that need to comply with 43-foot kingpin laws and regulations.
Kingpin laws generally apply to any trailer longer than 48 feet and less than 53 feet, and call for the maximum distance from the kingpin to the last axle to measure 43 feet or less.
The 5051TA comes with a 15,000-pound planetary winch as standard. The planetary winch uses a direct-drive system and offers up to twice the loading speed of a worm gear winch. Operators can run Talbert’s planetary winch through a multi-function wireless remote, which allows one person to load a piece of equipment without leaving the trailer.
Talbert’s 5051TA also comes with a T-1 and 80K steel beam constructed framework and 4-inch I-beam crossmembers on 9-inch centres to accommodate more concentrated loads.
Other standard features include 1½-inch apitong wooden flooring as well as side and centre tie-downs.
