What is a hydraulic tail trailer
Hydraulic tail trailers offer the perfect solution for hauling construction and agriculture equipment like lifts, rollers, forklifts and paving machinery.
Hydraulic tail (or traveling tail) trailers have goosenecks similar to drop deck trailers but feature hydraulic tails that can be tilted or folded out and lowered to the ground for easy loading. These tails can also be raised for reaching loading docks.

XL Specialized XL80 Power Tail
Power Tail Features
The XL Specialized Power Tail trailer is ideal for hauling medium-duty construction equipment. The tail is comprised of an 8-foot-8-inch platform ramp and a 60-inch fold-under tail. The low 10-degree load angle and traction plates allows for safe and easy loading of machinery.
This trailer has an 80,000 pound capacity and the rear tail can lift up to 25,000 pounds. The overall length is 48 feet; and the main deck measures just over 30 feet long. Stake pockets and chain slots provide versatile load securement configurations.
Utilize The Upper Deck
A nine foot pop-up ramp connects the main neck to the gooseneck, allowing machinery to be loaded onto the upper deck. The ramp also has traction tread plating.
An 18,000 pound winch at the front of the trailer assists in loading inoperable equipment or static loads. The winch assembly includes 75 feet of cable and a wireless remote control.
