The new trailer features a 36-inch deck height and a California-legal trailer length. Talbert increased the 4050TA's capac- ity from 70,000 pounds to 80,000 pounds evenly distributed or 50,000 pounds in 10 feet and reduced the lower deck height. The 4050TA has a 7-degree load angle and updated e-chain for air and electrical lines. The e-chain is made from metal for better durability, especially in colder climates. Talbert has also increased the number of keyholes to allow for improved flexibility when drivers tie items down. The trailer also features a piggy-back cylinder with a larger diameter than previous models and a lockable toolbox with a weather re- sistant door seal, upgraded hardware and chain rack.
