Talbert Manufacturing Introduces Oil Field Series for Fast Loading, Easier Transport of Equipment
Talbert Manufacturing introduces its Oil Field Trailer Series. Talbert designed the trailers specifically for the oil and gas industry with features that make for fast and efficient equipment loading and provide exceptional durability.
The three-trailer Oil Field Series consists of a 3-axle, 31.75 t (35 ton) step deck; a 4-axle, 54.4 t (60 ton) fixed-gooseneck trailer; and a 5-axle, 59.0 t (65 ton), fixed-gooseneck trailer. Because oil extraction requires frequent relocation of skid-mounted equipment such as generators, housing units, compressors, oil rigging equipment and pipe sections, Talbert designed this series specifically for that purpose.
A winch, tail rollers and optional pop-up rollers make pulling equipment onto the deck easier and more efficient. Weevil pins line the sides of the trailer and serve as vertical rollers to guide the equipment straight onto the trailer. And pipe pockets line the 60- and 65-ton trailers so operators can insert large stakes vertically to stack and haul pipe sections without shift during transport.
For traveling over rough terrain, the fixed-gooseneck trailers feature a high-arch profile. This design provides additional space between the tractor and the bottom of the gooseneck to prevent the two from making contact in bumpy, off-road applications.
Although Talbert manufactures the trailers with the same design parameters as its other lines, the company constructs its Oil Field Series in a slightly different manner so they can handle the demands of the oil and gas industry. These trailers have more welds in the cross members so they can handle twisting and turning when traveling off road from site to site.
Talbert’s Oil Field Series trailers come in lengths ranging from 16 m to 17 m. The 65-ton trailer is rated for 54,430 kg in 4.9 m or 58,965 kg evenly distributed through the lower deck. The 60-ton trailer is rated for 49,895 kg in 4.9 m or 54,430 kg distributed through lower deck. Finally, the 35-ton t is rated for 31,750 kg in 4.9 m or 45,360 kg evenly distributed. Deck height is dependent on tire size with two options: 86 cm deck height (17.5’’ tires) or 102 cm deck height (22.5’’ tires).
