IST  Wind Turbine Blade Trailer

Model:"The Blade" IST-53' BT 

The IST- 53' BT  Model Blade trailer requires No Forklift, No Crane or Equipment to Extend or Collapse!!!  The new dual purpose neck adjusts to desired load height allowing you to accommodate for the new industry generation of wind turbine blades.  This will allow the operator to lower the load height for bridges or raising the height for rough job sites or railroad tracks.  On top of everything else you can now load the pilot car. Grab your remote, lower front of trailer, load car, raise trailer with remote, back truck underneath, hook up and GO!  Good News for All!!  This NEW neck will retrofit any brand of Blade Trailer!!  And always remember that 37 degree turning radius that we boast of. This IST blade trailer is ingenuity at its very finest. It's been on the leading edge and one of the most proven blade trailers in the field today.
