XL Specialized Trailers' lightweight XL 80 Low-Profile Hydraulic Detachable Gooseneck trailer is designed for moving lighter-duty equipment.
The lowboy trailer is rated at 80,000 lbs. overall and 80,000 lbs. in 10-feet concentrated. The XL 80 features an 11-foot long hydraulic gooseneck with a low-profile design that improves front-loading capability.
The trailer has a five-position ratchet-style variable ride height to adjust the neck height to fit various loads. The two-axle construction lowboy is available in three lengths: a 44-foot, 6-inch overall length with 24 feet in the well, a 46-foot, 6-inch overall length with 26 feet in the well and a 48-Foot overall length with 24 feet in the well.
The trailer’s main deck is constructed with four 14-inch tall, fully-cambered I-beams as well as 8-inch and 4-inch stubbed junior I-beams on 12-inch alternating centers. The main deck has a 22-inch loaded deck height with 8 inches of ground clearance.
Standard features include 31-inch front flip ramps, 6 bent D-rings per side, chain drops, 12-inch swing-out outriggers on 24-inch centers, and raised apitong decking.
The bucket well at the rear of the main deck is made from the recessed last three cross members of the deck and includes a plate on the bottom designed for the bucket of an excavator to sit low in without damaging the cylinder.
The boom trough in the rear bridge also comes with a plate on the bottom and provides a place for the arm to ride safely. The rear bridge transition of 32 degrees features traction aids for loading, while the 9-foot, 6-inch long rear deck has a 40-inch loaded deck height and is prepped for a flip axle. Optional bolt-on wheel covers are available as load bearing – for parking on – or semi-load bearing – for driving on – and can be removed when not in use for weight reduction.
