Barnhart Unveils New Dual-Lane Transport System Pounds Barnhart Unveils New Dual-Lane Transport System To Handle Loads of Up to 600,000 Pounds

At Barnhart, we are always looking for newer, more efficient ways to finish a job. In fact, it’s one of our core values. The creative folks at Barnhart saw a pressing need for higher capacity transport on the West Coast that met stringent Department of Transportation (DOT) guidelines. That’s why we created the new WesTrac transportation. Barnhart joined forces with Goldhofer, a manufacturing juggernaut in the heavy hauling industry, to create a new duallane trailer with unique features. The design incorporates the features of a modular platform trailer; the engineers, however, integrated a specific axle spacing and footprint that meet DOT requirements for West Coast heavy hauling. Het team bedacht het WesTrac-systeem voor een efficiëntere mobilisatie, hogere weg snelheden en hogere verscheidenheid van configuraties om dual-lane laden. In feite, kan het nieuwe trailer systeem – in bepaalde configuraties-ladingen meer dan 600.000 pond.


Jeff Latture, Barnhart van zeer eigen Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, commentaar op de onthulling van de aanhangwagen met WesTrac. “The addition of our Goldhofer WesTrac dual-lane transport system type THP/CA to Barnhart’s cool tools inventory gives us the ability to transport overdimensional and super heavy hauls,” said Latture. “Barnhart’s Long Beach, CA, branch has a dedicated team that will provide planning and execution expertise with the new WesTrac System.” On a related note, Barnhart plans to introduce a similar EasTrac system that will meet the DOT requirements for East Coast hauling jobs.
