Towmaster T-120DTG Offers Detachable Gooseneck Lowboy Design

Towmaster’s T-120DTG detachable gooseneck trailer.

Towmaster’s T-120DTG detachable gooseneck trailer.

Towmaster's T-120DTG detachable gooseneck trailer is made for hauling large, heavy equipment.

This series includes a main frame construction with T-1 steel, non-ground bearing gooseneck, 10-in. (25 cm) crossmembers, standard open boom well, sealed-beam modular wiring harness, hydraulically operated gooseneck and polyurethane primer and paint.

This new design, engineered using SolidWorks 3D CAD software, incorporates features that allow more options to be utilized with the trailer. Jeeps and tandem stingers can be added to maximize hauling capacity. The T-120DTG trailer main deck is redesigned for heavier loads by utilizing a 16 in. (40 cm) side-rail. A slight design change to the rear trunion area accommodates more options with less stress on the frame. The cylinder location on the gooseneck is in-line with the beams. This design allows the use of smaller cylinders and relieves stress on the gooseneck, yet provides the extra power needed to lift heavier loads. The familiar trough hookup design has been used for many years, and includes an air-pin lock standard.

“While Towmaster's detachable gooseneck trailers have been well received in the marketplace and now have a strong following, we had some customers wanting to haul heavier loads than our current design handles,” said Sales Coordinator Chris Pokornowski. “This new design gives our customers another choice when needing to haul large equipment and adding out Jeep or Tandem booster options. Some of our dealers have asked us for a full line of trailers to offer ranging from small utility models to heavy-haulers and the new T-120DTG helps round out the full model offers Towmaster has.”

The T-120DTG has a 120,000 lbs. (54,431 kg) capacity in 16 ft. (4.8 m), heavy duty removable outriggers, 24 ft. (7.3 m) main deck and an air-ride suspension.
