Our Detachable Gooseneck Commercial Trailers are designed specifically for the fleet owner or over the road contract hauler who needs versatility, convenience, and longevity. With the mechanical detachable trailers becoming a thing of the past, we have provided the ultimate hydraulic detachable gooseneck package to minimize loading time and maximize available freight space and weight.
At 17,500 lbs. empty weight, and a 20” fully loaded deck height, the 30 ton model is set up with a capacity to weight ratio that can haul those permitted loads that are too tall and heavy for the typical flatbed and therefore bring top dollar, while still being light enough that you can pick up those backhauls that any flatbed would snag. The 40 ton bumps up your capacity by 20,000 lbs. while only increasing you empty weight by 1,000 lbs. The 40 Ton also allows the option to add that 3rd flip axle so you can bridge those heavier machines. When you start figuring your break even $/mile rate, you will quickly see that this trailer doesn’t just make “cents”, it will make you dollars.
The gooseneck on Kaufman’s Detachable Gooseneck Commercial Trailers is hydraulic powered, self-lifting, and self-aligning. It always slides easily into the V-Shaped alignment trough which is included on all our lowboy trailers. Our hydraulic controlled truck rest eliminates the need to manually block the neck during the detachment process. The custom built heavy duty hydraulic cylinders are made in the U.S. and provide the perfect combination of power and convenience. Our increased cylinder stroke means you will be able to raise the trailer chassis as high as 16” – 20” off the ground depending on fifth wheel height. The easily adjustable heavy duty hinged compression block assembly provides approximately four inches of ride height adjustment depending on the length of the gooseneck. We offer multiple gooseneck lengths that are available in 6” increments. We can help you find the perfect length neck to fit your truck.
Our Detachable Gooseneck Commercial Trailers include a long list of standard features such as a lockable lid toolbox, all LED lighting, a self-contained amber strobe kit, a U.S made all sealed Sealco wiring harness, lashing rings, 2” nominal air dried white oak decking, flat load bearing deck over the axles, and an optional flat deck over the gooseneck.
