Talbert Manufacturing‘s new 50-ton bus hauler, the 50CC-BH, has been designed to haul everything from buses to excavators as well as equipment with low clearance and long wheelbases. It includes a 20,000-pound planetary in-deck winch that can be used to load equipment from either end of the trailer. Extra steel has been introduced into the deck’s main and side beams, as well as the gooseneck and rear axles.
The trailer has three close-coupled axles and a 22.5-foot lower deck length and 20-foot five-inch rear bridge, creating a 43-foot load base. It also has a 21-inch deck height and 24-inch flip-up gooseneck that increases the unit’s 84-inch swing radius to 108 inches, the company says. That means the 50CC-BH can be used with three- or four-axle tractors and keep the trailer within 53-foot overall length limits when running empty.
It’s offered with 10-foot aluminum ramps that are stored in the trailer’s gooseneck.
