XL Trailers low-profile HDG trailer

XL Specialized Trailers will showcase the XL 110 Low-Profile Hydraulic Detachable Gooseneck (HDG) trailer at the CONEXPO-CON/AGG show.

Ideal for hauling heavy construction equipment, its 13-inch long low-profile neck saves weight, allowing the truck plenty of clearance to attach, and has a five position variable ride height. The XL 110 Low-Profile HDG trailer features an overall length of 53 feet with an overall width of 102 inches, and is rated at 110,000 pounds capacity overall and 100,000 pounds in 10-feet concentrated, for an efficient and versatile trailer on the road.

To hold up from years of loading and unloading and keep tracks from slipping, the trailer has apitong decking – a wood much stronger than oak. Featuring an incredibly versatile and strong 26-foot-long main deck before the 32-degree approach, it includes 80K web and T1 flange steel, 13 chain slots and seven bent D-rings on each side, as well as heavy-duty removable swing-out outriggers for hauling extra-wide loads. The loaded deck has a height of eight inches with a 24-inch ground clearance – a model with a height of 18 inches with a six-inch ground clearance is also available for the XL 110 Low-Profile HDG trailer.

The rear bridge is 14 feet long with a 40-inch loaded deck height. To haul equipment on the rear bridge, the XL 110 is equipped with bolster chain slots and comes with the option of bolt-on load-bearing wheel covers for hauling loads on top of the cover or semi load-bearing wheel covers to drive equipment onto the bolsters. The bolt-on feature allows users to remove and attach them as needed.

Equipped with a deep well that is specifically designed for long booms, the trailer eliminates the need to detach the lower boom section on a scraper. The deep bucket well in the rear bridge easily accommodates excavators and the lowered rear angle from deck to wheel area allows for easier loading of equipment over the rear deck. The XL 110 Low-Profile HDG features three 25,000-pound minimal axles on the rear bridge, spaced at 54.5 inches apart (XL also offers 60-inch axle spacing).
