All-Terrain Heavy-Haul Trailer Innovations
Talbert Manufacturing has developed
another innovation for its line of spread
axle trailers. The Equalizer is a nitrogenassisted
dampening system that hydraulically
transfers loads in all terrains. This
suspension system oscillates around a central
self-tracking pivot point to provide proportionate
weight distribution in each axle
grouping, regardless of varying road conditions.
Designed as a simple user-friendly
system, operators can make easy and quick
adjustments, and maintain those settings
to maximize loads safely and efficiently. By
hydraulically dampening axle movement
and controlling load transfer, the Equalizer
suspension system absorbs hauling and
loading shocks; providing a greater range of
suspension movement for reduced stress
and a smoother ride. The Equalizer is available
for use with Talbert 55SA (55-ton)
and 60SA (60-ton) 3+1 spread axle series
trailers and axle attachments. In addition
to its advanced design, The Equalizer also
incorporates a dual two-speed landing gear
making connecting the trailer to the axle
attachment much easier. The design of The
Equalizer also allows the axle attachment
to be lifted out of the way easily for backing.
The Equalizer allows a 14-ft, 1-in.
spread with 54-in. axle spacing; and a 14-
ft, 7-in. spread with 60-in. axle spacing.
The system is powered by a Honda gas
engine power pack as standard.
