Talbert Ssta5053

Talbert Manufacturing’s SSTA 5053 Traveling Axle Trailer, suited for the heavy-duty towing and recovery industry, has a 50-ton capacity, a 41-foot-6-inch lower deck and 53 feet in overall length. The flexible SSTA 5053 features a 6-degree loading angle and a 14-degree dumping angle, making it suitable as a general purpose trailer or for easy loading and offloading of nonoperating equipment – particularly pieces with lower ground clearance.

For long-term, reliable heavy-duty performance, the SSTA 5053 has a T-1 and 80K steel beam-constructed framework; 4-inch I-beam crossmembers on 9-inch centers; and 1½-inch apitong flooring. The trailer also includes an air-ride suspension, a two-speed landing gear, hub-piloted steel disc wheels and both side and center tiedown slots for greater loading ease and application flexibility.
