Miller Transfer recently put into service a new 2007 Nelson nine-axle trailer. Coupled with Miller's four-axle tractor the combination creates a 13-axle tractor-trailer that has a cargo capacity of 160,000 pounds. The new trailer offers the latest in “depressed well” technology, according to the company.
The trailer well assembles from 15 to 72 feet long and can accommodate shipments by up to 19 feet wide within the well. The trailer has telescopic cross-members that are hydraulically operated allowing for minimal assembly.
