| July 19, 2010

The 75-ton Double Schnabel Trailer is designed to transport wind energy equipment and for use in heavy haul applications. The trailers are self-sustaining, and self-loading options are available with hydraulic-lift capabilities to reduce the need for cranes during loading and unloading, the company says. The trailer has a 13-axle configuration designed to haul an 80-meter wind tower base or a wind tower mid-section and comes equipped with both mechanical and remote rear steer capabilities. The front Schnabel gooseneck is attached to a 3-axle dolly with a 60-in. sliding fifth wheel to help with load distribution, and the rear Schnabel gooseneck is attached to a 6-axle rear steer dolly rated for a 120,000-pound load.
