Calculating true capacity before buying your next trailer

Talbert's 60CC/55SA-LD trailer pairs with the company's optional East Coast-style E1Nitro axle extension, allowing for 60-ton capacity with a close-coupled configuration or a 55-ton hauling capacity with a spread axle configuration.

And it all comes down to one objective - the ideal trailer for an operation's specific loads.
