Need a trailer from a brand that knows their stuff? Talbert Manufacturing, a North American leader in specialized heavy-haul solutions, has been building world-class heavy-haul and specialized trailers to rigorous customer specifications since 1938. The company offers complete lines of heavy-haul trailers and specialized transportation equipment for the commercial, industrial, military, and government sectors. Its trailers and equipment are used in applications as diverse as renewable energy, aerospace, heavy construction, in-plant material handling, manufacturing and processing systems, and much more.

Those in need of equipment hauling can consider Talbert Manufacturing’s 35FG-BVTL. The 35FG-BVTL is a fixed-neck, drop deck trailer for small- to mid-size equipment machinery. The 35-ton trailer is rated at 70,000 lbs concentrated in 20 ft and features hydraulic ramps for safe, efficient loading and unloading in confined spaces. The 35FG-BVTL is part of Talbert’s Double Drop Series. Its fixed neck provides an economic alternative compared to removable gooseneck designs for operators that do not require a front unload option. Contractors can use the 35FG-BVTL to haul a variety of small- to mid-size construction equipment, making it an economic and versatile choice for millwrights, riggers, and general freight contractors.
