Rogers builds custom heavy-hauler

Oct. 2, 2013

Rogers Trailer has designed a new platform trailer for Anchor36 Trucking of Kenner, LA. The hauler specializes in transporting oversize, overweight and difficult loads.

Anchor36 president and co-founder Courtney Brauninger approached Rogers looking for a trailer that allowed the company to reconfigure it for multiple purposes.

Rogers manufactured a trailer with interchangeable platform and I-beam decks. A drop-side deck can be added at a later date. Because Anchor36 focuses on the construction industry, a “bucket pocket” and “boom trough” were built into the platform deck to nestle excavator’s booms and buckets for increased overhead clearance.

The trailer includes Rogers’ new CobraNeck, multiple ride height gooseneck. The CobraNeck is enhanced by a 72 in. gooseneck extender for a 3-axle jeep dolly. The rear frame has removable/flip 4th and 5th axles with air lift on the 3rd axle and a self-equalizing “nitro” spreader.

Depending on the configuration, the trailer is rated at either 90 or 70-ton capacity.
