MANCHESTER, Iowa (August 16, 2016) – XL Specialized Trailers has introduced a new trailer to their lineup with the XL 80 Power Tail trailer. Ideal for transporting medium-duty construction equipment, the trailer features a hydraulic fold-under flip tail ramp for quick loading and unloading of hard-to-load equipment.
With a load angle of ten degrees, the hydraulic tail is equipped to easily handle man lifts, rollers, forklifts and paving equipment. The XL Power Tail is rated at 80,000 pounds overall and 50,000 pounds concentrated in 10 feet. The tail has a lifting capacity of 25,000 pounds for loads centered on the main platform. The tail is comprised of two sections – an 8-foot 8-inch platform ramp and a 60-inch flip tail. Lug-style hinges prevent debris from accumulating, keeping both hinge points clean.
This model offers standard features to make drivers’ jobs easier: a hydraulic pop-up ramp connecting the deck to the gooseneck, a foot hole and grab handle on each side of the gooseneck for climbing onto the deck, an 18,000-pound hydraulic winch with a two-function wireless remote and an air kick-out for hauling inoperable equipment or static loads. Raised Apitong and quarter-inch self-cleaning star traction decking, D-ring stake pockets, chain slots and a work light add convenience.
The XL 80 Power Tail is available in two lengths: 48 feet or 53 feet. There are customized options to choose from such as an 8- or 10-function remote, workaround pulley for winch cable, steel tread plate on the flip tail and pop-up ramp, and various winches to customize the trailer for your specific needs.
