XL Specialized Trailers’ 80 MFG galvanized trailer is a mechanical full-width gooseneck trailer. It has a base weight of approximately 15,600 lbs.
XL builds its galvanized units with the same T-1 flange, 80K web as its other lowboys. The hot-dip galvanizing process creates a durable barrier between the elements and the steel, enabling the trailer to withstand harsh weather and road conditions and extending its lifetime by up to three times over standard steel, according to the company.
The galvanized MFG offers all the features enjoyed on XL’s standard MFG. The full-width upper deck features a lockable toolbox with a chain rack and light. For added strength on loading areas, Apitong decking is standard on the front, main, and rear deck.
The main deck is fully equipped for versatile hauling, with eight d-rings per side, 14 half-inch chain slots per side, and removable swing-out outriggers on 24-inch centers. The 18-inch loaded deck height and 6 inches of ground clearance allow drivers to transport tall loads. Manual ride height control and double donuts allow the main deck height to vary 1.5 inches in the wheel area and 1.5 inches at the neck to suit drivers’ needs.
In the wheel area, users will enjoy an easy-access angled control panel. The 9-foot long rear deck is also reinforced for a flip axle, allowing a third axle if needed to distribute the weight of the load.
