25-Foot Hamilton Trailer Lays the Hammer Down

Friday, August 29, 2014 3:39 PM  RssIcon

The oil industry is booming with Hamilton and Frank’s International on the pipelines.

A world leader in oilfield services, Frank’s chose us to build a 25-foot-long trailer to haul diesel and hydraulic hammers. They’re used to drive pipe into the ground as the first stage of new oil well installations.

“Because the hammers are longer than they are wide, we couldn’t load them onto forklifts to carry them into the maintenance area of the workshop bay,” said Ray Barrileaux, assistant operations manager at Frank’s International.

While the company builds a brand-new facility, it currently operates in a temporary shop with height restrictions. Our extra-long trailer bypasses those height constraints by carting hammers in and out of the work bay.

“We weren’t about to let a few low ceilings sink our operation,” said Barrileaux. “With Hamilton’s help, we’re able to help our customers keep the oil flowing.”

The 5 Heaviest Hamilton Truck Hauls

Friday, February 28, 2014 9:05 AM  RssIcon

Line up all the paper printed daily at one of the largest mills in the United States, and you’d cover roughly 4,000 miles. Roll it back up into individual 40-ton rolls, and you’d have Hamilton’s heaviest trailer haul.

Here are the mega loads we’re highlighting this month:

40-Ton Paper Rolls

The global supplier stretched us in more ways than one to move rolls of paper taller than a three-story building, and heavier than five elephants. At 33 feet, this isn’t just our highest-capacity trailer, it’s the longest we’ve ever built. Put that in ink.

30-Ton Chemistry Set

With a name like “Big Blue,” you know this four-wheel steer trailer totes serious mass. While 30-ton chemical molds might sound like quite the payload, it’s what’s under the truck that impresses – synchronized steering to maneuver through a maze-like factory floor.

20 Golden Tons

Open up a jewelry box, and you’ll find dustings of Hamilton. At a major mining operation, our fifth-wheel steer trailer hauls 20-ton vibrating screen machines. Each sifts through thousands of pounds of sediment each day to find rare minerals. You might say we’re worth our weight in gold.

30 Tons of Hush-Hush Military Tech

You need security clearance to see the 30-ton load, but that doesn’t mean we can’t share its chauffer. To accommodate the oversized haul, we built an 8-foot wide deck and fifth wheels at each end for precision turning. As for everything else? That’s classified.

15 Tons of Pressure

We’re keeping the lights on, one custom truck at a time. We built a pressure and heat-resistant trailer to move 15-ton control valves at a global energy provider’s power plant. Inside the station’s core, it’s hotter than planet Venus with more pressure than the deepest ocean.
