Talbert’s trailer unveiled

first_imgThe 55SA-TELE can be used to haul a wide range of large equipment, such as bridge beams, conveyors, generators, pressure vessels and tanks, says Talbert. The trailer can be retracted to 32 ft 6 inches (9.9 m), making the unit 53 ft (16.15 m). Talbert claims the shorter configuration of the 55SA-TELE eliminates the need for permits on return journeys and empty legs, which saves time and reduces costs.Troy Geisler, Talbert Manufacturing vice president of sales and marketing, said: “Our customers needed a way to minimise costs to remain competitive when transporting the ever longer loads, and the retractable deck helps them do that. The 55SA-TELE gives customers the long deck length they need to transport equipment, yet offers the retractable option to fall within legal length on return trips.”The unit features a 29 ft (8.83 m) wooden deck in the front and a 3 ft (0.9 m) platform in the rear made from Apitong hardwood with beams stretching between. It also includes a 90 inch (2.28 m) swing radius that can be extended to 114 inches (2.89 m) with the use of a gooseneck extension, which optimises the deck length while keeping it within the legal 53 ft (16.15 m) limit when retracted.The 55SA-TELE is equipped with its ENitro nitrogen assisted dampening system, which provides proportional weight distribution in each axle grouping.  www.talbertmfg.comlast_img read more

College Football and NFL Lines: Who to Take

first_imgKentucky vs. MissouriKentucky +6.5I like Kentucky straight up. They have played better against SEC opponents for one and the Tigers have struggled recently. They lost by at least 35 points the last two SEC games and then lost at home to Middle Tennessee State last week. Kentucky needs this win if they want a shot at becoming bowl eligible and the numbers point to them getting one on the road. Nebraska vs. WisconsinNebraska +9.5The winner of this one might come out of the West for the Big Ten. Nebraska is still undefeated but they haven’t blown away anybody and have not had a major test so far. Wisconsin on the other hand has close losses to Ohio State and Michigan and a win over LSU. I like the tested Badgers to win at home but Nebraska has the talent to not get blown out. While a pharmacy major at Toledo by day, Brandon Urasek is now making his mark in the journalism scene specializing in fantasy football and all things Cleveland sports. A five time fantasy football league champ and two time runner-up in ten tries, Brandon strives to help people with their lineups each week in both personal and weekly fantasy leagues in addition to covering the other various Cleveland teams. Follow Brandon on twitter @burasek10 Cardinals vs. PanthersCardinals +3The rematch of the NFC Championship game from last year looks like a battle for a team fighting to keep just their playoff hopes alive. The Panthers defense and injuries to Cam have hurt and the Cardinals haven’t gotten going either. Of the two I like the Cardinals in this one. The corners for Carolina have been so dreadful and the Cardinals have the best receiving group in the NFL. If Julio can go for over 300 on his own the Cardinals can do that among three great receivers. College Football Betting Lines Week 9 Michigan vs. Michigan StateMichigan State +24.5Rivalry games are never easy. Ask Michigan about the last time when all they had to do was get a punt off to win the game. Even Ohio State went down last week on the road in a rivalry game where Penn State was almost a 20 point underdog. Michigan is still the better team by a lot but expect the rivalry to keep it closer than most will expect. UNLV vs. San Jose StateUNLV -3San Jose State is just a bad team. They beat a FCS school and Nevada by four while their closest loss has been by 17. UNLV isn’t great but they have played better against tougher opponents than SJSU has faced and should come out with an easy win. Related Topics Miami vs. Notre DameMiami -1.5I’ve seen Notre Dame’s defense this year and it is terrible in every aspect. This is a game to watch if you are a fan of a bad NFL team who needs a QB because two of the top three prospects in this year are playing in this one. The experience of Kaaya going up against the Irish defense will lead to another Notre Dame loss in a season they want to forget. Brandon Urasek Raiders vs. BucsOver 49The Raiders are undefeated on the road this season and for whatever reason seem to play better. Both teams rank in the bottom 10 of the NFL in points allowed and the Raiders are in the top 10 in points scored. The Bucs have played better the last couple weeks including scoring 34 points on the road last week. Winston and Carr can combine for some big plays in a high scoring affair. Other Considerations:Central Michigan -14.5, UCF-Houston Over 59.5, Clemson -4, Marshall-Southern Mississippi Over 65.5, Washington State -13.5 Vikings vs. BearsVikings -4.5Turnover machine Jay Cutler is the starting QB again in Chicago and going against the Vikings means start their defense if you can. The Vikings have won most of their games this year due to the defense and the Bears have struggled all season earning just one win. Look for a low scoring game that may turn into a shutout. I’ll predict the Vikings defense scores more points than the Bears. Last Week NCAAF: 3-6Last Week NFL: 3-2Overall NCAAF: 63-53Overall NFL: 64-49 Jets vs. BrownsJets -3It seems like McCown might get the start again after suffering a collarbone injury earlier this season. The last time he faced the Jets it didn’t go well for him. In the opening game last year he got injured and fumbled on that catapult into the endzone on the Browns opening drive. The Jets defensive line is scary and I feel there is a decent chance he reinjures that collarbone during this game playing behind an even worse offensive line than when he got hurt earlier. Ryan Fitzpatrick is fired up after the organization has doubted him and he can throw a lot against the Browns corners. I like the Jets a lot. Baylor vs. TexasBaylor -3.5Texas has been up and down all season and Baylor will likely lose a game at some point but I don’t see it adding up this weekend. The Baylor offense is too strong for Texas to keep in a lower scoring game which would favor the Longhorns. Baylor will keep themselves in the playoff hunt for one more week.
