XL Specialized Trailers has added a Low-Profile Hydraulic Detachable Gooseneck (HDG) trailer to its lineup. The trailer offers a loaded deck height of 15 in. and a ground clearance of 4.5 in. With a capacity of 110,000 lbs. in 12 ft., the unit is designed for hauling in commercial and construction applications. The 13-ft. gooseneck has a swing clearance of 110 in., and the relief cut out in the gooseneck provides additional space between the truck and trailer. The hydraulic neck detaches and re-attaches using a power unit or a wet kit. The redesigned sloped nose of the gooseneck aims to protect the air and electric connections from damage.
