Trail King’s Advantage Plus! Series Hydraulic Detachable Gooseneck (HDG) trailer features a new gooseneck design, as well as a long list of new standard equipment. The detachable gooseneck system still includes self-lifting hydraulic cylinders, nonground bearing design and V-shaped alignment guide.
The Advantage Plus! Series HDG also features a new 5-position gooseneck door adjustment designed to allow for a full 8-inch range of kingpin height settings, plus a notched setting control bar to take the guesswork out of setting the gooseneck doors in the desired position. What’s more, the new arched design of the gooseneck provides ample truck frame clearance, even when set at the lowest kingpin height, the company says.
Also new are the heavy-duty pullout front outriggers designed to provide extra strength at the pivot point where weight is concentrated during the loading/unloading process; because they are built right into the frame, there’s no need to lift them on and off, or store them elsewhere when not in use. Spring-loaded stainless steel latches can be turned and locked open, leaving both hands free to pull out or push in the outriggers. In addition, close-set outriggers at mid-deck to help prevent planks from tipping up as the load rolls over them now are standard.
The Advantage Plus! Series Hydraulic Detachable Gooseneck trailer is available in 35-, 51- and 55-ton capacities.
