Talbert Tag-A-Long AC Trailers Maximize Efficiency

Talbert Manufacturing
Talbert Manufacturing offers its Tag-A-Long Austin Carry-All Series (AC Series) trailers to minimize loading times and maximize productivity for everyday hauling of small- to mid-sized equipment. The line of 10- to 25-ton tag-a-long trailers features low loaded deck heights, durability, 7° loading angle to transport a variety of equipment. Talbert’s AC Series is ideal for general construction, paving, agriculture, and oil fields. “As contractors diversify their operations to meet changing demands, they require more flexibility from their equipment,” said Troy Geisler, Talbert Manufacturing vice president of sales and marketing. “Our AC Series trailers are specially designed to maximize versatility while providing the durability and safety Talbert Manufacturing is known for.” For ultimate maneuverability in urban environments, the dual-axle AC-10 offers 10-ton capacity, 29’6” overall length, 24’ deck length (19’ flat plus 5’ beavertail) and 5’5” self-cleaning spring-assisted rear ramps. Loaded deck height is 32.25”. That’s as much as 2” lower than competitors, making it ideal for areas with low-clearance obstacles, such as residential and commercial building sites and for urban utility operations. The AC-20 is a step up for contractors looking for larger capacity but with the same compact footprint. It offers 20-ton capacity with the same deck dimensions and loaded deck height as the AC-10. The AC3-25 has a 29’ deck (24’ flat plus 5’ beavertail) and 25-ton capacity with a 32.75” loaded deck height. Like all AC series trailers, the AC3-25 features strong pierced-I-beam cross member construction to withstand off-road or rugged terrain such as oil fields or construction and utility jobsites. Talbert also uses apitong flooring on all AC Series trailers for a durable, long-lasting deck surface. Compared to oak or other materials, this tightly grained and dense South Asian wood is less susceptible to chipping and cracking and provides more traction. The AC-20ART and AC3-25ART improve on the base design of the AC Series by incorporating an air ramp and/or air tilt for safe, easy loading of low-clearance equipment. Talbert introduced the air ramps last fall at the ICUEE trade show. The air-powered ramps eliminate handling heavy ramps. That increases both efficiency and safety for loading and offloading operations.
