The hauling capacities of Traveling Axle (TA) Series trailers have been increased by 5 tons. Three models—the 4048TA, 4050TA, and 4053TA—can haul up to 40 tons, and the 5548TA and 5553TA haul up to 55 tons. The trailers have a 36-inch loaded deck height that provides additional clearance for bridges and tunnels.
The trailers feature the company’s piggy-back cylinder, now with a larger diameter for faster axle travel. The new models also have an increased number of keyholes across the rear of the trailer for additional flexibility for tying down loads; and an improved, lockable curbside gooseneck toolbox.
Standard equipment for the series includes a 15,000-pound planetary winch with a two-function, wireless remote. Two upgrade options include a six-function remote and a 20,000-pound planetary winch.
