XL Specialized launches new options for Guardian trailer
18 July 2023
XL Specialized Trailers, a manufacturer of heavy haul and specialized trailers, has unveiled new options for the XL Guardian 110 Hydraulic Detachable Gooseneck (HDG) trailer, a standardized construction trailer. Available this summer, the new line of options includes an 18-inch loaded deck height version and 60-inch axle spacing option.
“These new options are engineered with the same level of innovation and industry-leading performance as our highly popular and reliable Guardian trailer,” says Tom Hiatt, director of sales, XL.
In addition to the 22-inch loaded deck height option for the main bed, XL now offers an 18-inch loaded deck height option. Operators can adjust the height of the deck for diverse loads with a 5-position variable ride height in the neck and manual ride height in the rear.
“We set out to create an option focused on lower deck heights, which are essential especially in the northeastern U.S. where bridges tend to be lower,” added Hiatt.
The new 60-inch axle spacing option will be available on both the 18- and 22-inch deck heights. When this option is selected, the main deck will shift to 25 feet to keep the 53-foot overall length. This 60-inch option also meets various customer demands and is expected to be popular in the western U.S. and Canada to accommodate axle laws in those areas.
