These oilrig trailers are pumped for productivity

Just ask our friends in the oil and gas industry. Hamilton recently partnered with an international productivity solutions provider to custom-engineer two trailers specifically designed to load and transport large, cumbersome components for assembly.

“Handling these parts can be challenging. They’re heavy and irregularly-shaped, not to mention fairly expensive,” said John Yater, Hamilton lead design engineer on the project. Yater and his team worked with the customer to create safe, cost-effective and modular trailers that could be secured and handled in multiple ways. Productivity, check. Safety, check, check.


XT2814

The XT2814 trailer—designed to support wellheads—is a quick study in ergonomics. It’s got an extra thick deck armed with forged adjustable clamps that are perfect for locking down flanges of all different sizes and thicknesses. No flanges? No problem. Lashing rings can be used to secure the load. Its rear tube bumper is designed for easy power pushing, while the tubing sub-frame is lined with internal guides to mate easily with a lift table. Everything rolls on our indestructible Superlast® wheels: their steel centers and thick polyurethane treads ensure a quiet, gentle ride for giant loads, while the caster swivel locks keep maneuverability stable during transport.


XT2813

Just like the XT2814, the XT2813—engineered for valve trees—is designed for easy loading and transport with the same casters, tube bumper and fork pockets. It’s also highly adjustable for both assembling and disassembling parts. A wide range of parts can be moved in four different directions: left and right, up and down. The deck is slightly tilted so that oil can properly drain out one end.
