Albion, PA — Transport haulers in New York City and the boroughs can encounter major challenges. New York Heavy Trucking, Corp. is a Long Island company that provides specialized transportation and logistics services for shippers. They recently purchased a ROGERS® trailer specifically designed to conquer these challenges. Owner Nick DiMarinis, with more than twenty years of experience in this field, knew that Rogers Brothers Corporation was the company best equipped to design a trailer to haul the oversized crawler dozer, cherry picker and drill rigs that he regularly transports. Nick approached Mike Flynn, Rogers' Regional Sales Manager in New York and New England, who made suggestions for engineering and customizing based on his more than 30 years of experience in specialized transportation. They approached Dan Stanton, Sales Rep for Edward Ehrbar, Inc., Rogers' local distributor, who arranged for Nick to visit the ROGERS factory where he studied existing designs to use as a base for his new trailer. After sharing his ideas and discussing the details of the equipment he hauls, ROGERS' engineers modified and customized a design to meet his needs.

One of the greatest challenges in the NYC area is maintaining a loaded height of 13'-6" or lower. New York Heavy Trucking's new ROGERS 105-ton capacity trailer has wheel wells for the rubber-tired cherry picker to have increased overhead clearances. A "bucket pocket" and "boom trough" gives the bucket and stick of an excavator a place to nestle between the rear wheels and into the deck.

For the first time on a trailer of this large capacity, ROGERS used air ride suspension on all the axles. This allows the rear of the trailer to be raised or lowered in five height positions while fully loaded. The No Foot® self-lifting gooseneck quickly raises or lowers the front of the deck to clear railroad tracks or off-road obstructions at the work sites. Nick reports, "Without the accommodations built into this trailer, we would be forced to take open air routes which would add hours to our transport time. The unique look and special features of the trailer have drawn crowds as we wait our turn to cross the George Washington Bridge. The modular design allows us to change-out the deck and ROGERS is currently building additional axles that will allow us to haul a greater variety of equipment while meeting axle requirements. The savings in time and effort we have realized with the trailer have increased our profit." Photos of the trailer hauling various loads may be viewed on New York Heavy Trucking's web site:

This 105-ton capacity ROGERS® trailer easily hauls a drill rig, a crawler excavator and other oversized/overweight equipment while maintaining the 13'6" overhead clearance required for crossing bridges in the New York City area. The wheels of this loader rest in wheel wells, which saves four inches of overhead clearance.
