An optional belly box adds capacity for plywood and other large materials. The furniture trailer comes standard with Stoughton features like a dual tension roof, strong front coupler, and a superior painting process.

The company says the focus of the project is to research, test, and fully vet new technologies that promise value for the end user. As part of this effort, Strick is continuing to explore ways to make trail- ers more aerodynamic. The company says it is develop- ing a more aerodynamic rear frame because the rear of the trailer provides a considerable amount of aerodynamic drag. Another goal is to increase a trailer's lifespan. Advances in this area include a fully galvanized understructure, including a galvanized upper coupler. Circle 363 on Reader Action Card Or go to www.hdt.hotresponse.com Talbert Manufacturing T albert has designed three trailers specifi- cally for the oil and gas industry. The series consists of a 3-axle, 35-ton step deck; a 4-axle, 60-ton fixed-gooseneck; and a 5-axle, 65-ton fixed-gooseneck. They are designed to handle skid-mounted generators, compres- sors, oil rigging equipment, pipe sections and housing units employed in oil drilling and extraction. Winches, tail rollers, and optional pop-up rollers allow quick pulling of equipment onto trailer decks. Weevil pins line the sides of the trailer and serve as vertical rollers to guide the equipment straight onto the trailer. Two pair of pipe pockets on the 60- and 65-ton trailers allow operators to insert large stakes vertically to stack and securely haul pipe sections. The 60- and 65-ton trailers also feature a high-arch profile, which aids travel over rough terrain. This design provides additional space between the tractor and the bottom of the gooseneck to prevent the two from making contact in bumpy conditions. The trailers come in lengths of 53 to 56 feet. The 65-ton trailer is rated for 120,000 pounds in 16 feet or 130,000 pounds evenly distributed throughout the lower deck. The 60- ton version is rated for 110,000 pounds in 16 feet or 120,000 pounds evenly distributed. The 35-ton is rated for 70,000 pounds in 10 feet or 100,000 pounds distributed.
