The new 4050TA, the latest addition to Talbert Manufacturing’s Traveling Axle Series, is ideal for haulers who need the flexibility of a  lower deck height to clear bridges and tunnels when transporting taller equipment.

Talbert increased the 4050TA capacity from 70,000 to 80,000 pounds evenly distributed or 50,000 pounds in 10 feet and reduced the lower deck height to 36 inches. The 4050TA also features a 7-degree load angle and an updated e-chain for the air and electrical lines. The new e-chain is metal rather than plastic for greater durability, especially in colder climates. Talbert also has increased the number of keyholes across the rear of the trailer to provide additional flexibility when drivers tie items down. In addition, the 4050TA features Talbert’s signature piggy-back cylinder, now with a larger diameter, and an improved, lockable toolbox that includes a weather resistant door seal, upgraded hardware and chain rack. The toolbox is located in the gooseneck along the curbside.

Talbert’s standard equipment for the TA Series includes a 15,000-pound planetary winch that operates with a two-function wireless remote. It assists in moving equipment on and off of the trailer by making it possible for one person to load a piece of equipment without leaving the vehicle. In addition to the optional 20,000-pound winch, this Tow Show unit also includes the optional six-function remote to operate the movement of the axles, winch and deck while loading. Additional optional equipment includes a 48-inch aluminum/steel bulkhead with strobe and work lights, a centralized lubrication system and a Right Weigh load scale.

Talbert Manufacturing’s new 4050TA trailer features an industry-leading 36-inch deck height and a California-legal trailer length.
