XL Specialized Trailers

April 16, 2014

A market-leading manufacturer of custom-engineered heavy-haul trailers, XL Specialized Trailers introduced its new XL 130 Hydraulic Detachable Gooseneck (HDG) Multi-Axle trailer at the CONEXPO-CON/AGG show, March 4″“8, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The trailer had been specifically built for a customer and was made to travel over tough and rugged terrain at job sites.

Rated at 130,000 pounds capacity overall and 130,000 pounds in 10-feet concentrated, the XL 130 HDG is perfect for hauling larger construction equipment. The hydraulic multi-axle unit includes a three-axle trailer, two-axle east coast booster, and two-axle jeep (with a pin-on axle on the jeep). The jeep is designed for higher versatility and allows for a better load distribution. The XL classic-style hydraulic gooseneck is 12 feet, 5 inches long and includes a 49-inch fifth-wheel height with seven ride-height positions as well as a 72-inch flip neck for the two-axle jeep.

The main deck is 9 feet wide and has a length of just over 26 feet with a ground clearance of 8 inches. The width of the main deck can be extended to 11 feet with 12-inch, heavy-duty, removable swing-out outriggers. The main deck is also outfitted with five bent D-rings and four pan-style D-rings per side and 31-inch front flip ramps. An open boom trough goes into a 5-foot bucket well with a steel-plated bottom on the rear bridge for added durability, and the design also allows the boom to be knuckled under without hitting or damaging the cylinder. The deck also features 1.75-inch raised apitong decking-a wood stronger than oak.
