XL Specialized Trailers has designed a solution of hauling longer wind turbine blades with its new BladeMate Flip Extension.  The Flip Extension can be added to the rear of XL’s BladeMate trailer or any blade hauling trailer.  The final trailer length will depend on the model the flip extension is paired with.  For example, a 27-foot flip extension will take XL’s BladeMate to a length of 211 feet.  When moving an empty trailer, a driver can flip the Flip Extension up, retract the trailer, and have a 53-foot long return trip to reduce permit costs.  The rear bolster, at the end of the Flip Extension, offers a 20,000-pound capacity, making it suitable as the rear-loading platform for the common two-point load set-up.  The Flip Extension is secured with a lug and pin system, allowing the tail to be completely removed when not needed.
